Sausage Tree Safari Camp
A small, intimate, luxury tented camp in the Greater Kruger National Park where the Big 5 still roam freely.
Situated within the Olifants West Nature Reserve with dramatic hilltops, valleys and open plains providing breathtaking views of uninterrupted bush all the way to the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains.
The Olifants River flows all year round through the reserve with healthy populations of hippo and crocodile, as well as a huge diversity of bird species including the elusive Pels Fishing Owl.
Our luxury, African-styled Safari tents are comfortably furnished with bathrooms en-suite, featuring a freestanding bath and an outside shower on a raised base for maximizing your views of the bush and the mountains. Air conditioning, fan, and tea and coffee facilities make it a definitive ‘glamping’ experience with the advantage that staying in a tented camp has, bringing the sounds of nature so much closer to you.
Our energetic staff are highly experienced, dedicated and passionate, as our guest reviews reflect. Their attention to detail will ensure your stay is ultimately relaxing and memorable, from Pitso and Kabelo’s outstanding cuisine, to our welcoming front-of -house teams’ personal service, local knowledge and friendliness.
Our guide and tracker teams will not only find you incredible animal sightings but will interpret what you see with fun filled facts, underpinned by their exhaustive knowledge, passion and respect for nature thereby making certain your Safari experience is an authentic one.
A variety of interesting, local tours are also available around the Hoedspruit area, including a private, guided day tour to the famous Kruger National Park itself.

Have you ever slept under canvas in the African bush? Well there truly is nothing like it! The sounds of the night are closer, the smells of nature are stronger, and the feeling of actually being in the bush is so much more intense.
Our luxury, African-styled safari tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn, Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the majestic Northern Drakensberg Mountains. They are built in an elevated position each with its own special view.
The tents are comfortably furnished and feature an ensuite bathroom with a bath and an outdoor shower. They are fitted with eco air conditioners ensuring that you stay cool on hot summer nights… and can be used as a heater during the colder nights in winter.
Each tent has its own private deck with wonderful views of the mountains and the African bush.
Insect gauze on all the windows and doors keep the insects outside where they belong.
