About Sausage Tree Camp
Recently renovated, Sausage Tree Camp exudes Zambian bush chic. The camp, named after the sausage shaped fruit in the giant Sausage Trees has a privileged location within the natural beauty of the protected Lower Zambezi National Park with it's abundance of wildlife. The camp has no boundaries and is ideally placed in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park, where the animals are free to wander straight through and around the camp making the comfort of your tent the ideal wildlife viewing sanctuary.
This stylish, contemporary and very luxurious camp is comprised of seven luxury suites. Each suite is constructed using a mixture of canvas and environmentally friendly man-made 'wood', and is tastefully decorated with modern furniture, natural wood and soft linens. Each suite has its own deck and private plunge pool looking out over the reed islands ahead.
Sausage Tree Camp is located in the Lower Zambezi National Park. The park is bordered by the Chiawa Game Management Area (GMA) in the West, Rufunsa GMA in the East, the Zambezi River in the South, and the Great East Road in the North.

When to go
April and May - most of the rain has faded away, leaving a landscape that is green and lush, with clear skies and pleasantly mild temperatures.
June, July and August - the nights are generally much cooler, but the days are clear and warm. Make sure you bring warm clothes to wrap up in the early mornings and evenings, as some nights get very cold.
September and October - the temperatures climb and it can get very hot in October. However, the game viewing is spectacular as the animals concentrate around the limited water sources and along the river.
November is variable, it can be hot and dry like October, or, you may be lucky enough to experience the first spectacular storms of the season.
The Zambian Kwacha is the local currency. The US dollar is the most commonly accepted foreign currency within Zambia. Credit cards are readily accepted within Lusaka and Livingstone. However, outside these areas it is best to use cash and/or travellers cheques.
Zambia is regarded as a malarial area and therefore proper prevention, by way of malaria prophylaxis is recommended. There are many different strains of Malaria requiring specific drugs. Please consult your doctor for the right prophylactic (anti Malarial) drugs. You may also require proof of Yellow Fever and other vaccinations, so please make sure these are up to date - consult your travel agent for details. Guest safety is a priority at Sausage Tree Camp. All guides have advanced first aid training and the camp has a full medical kit on hand.
