Sausage Tree felt like home. The staff was SO sweet and made me feel so welcomed. It’s obvious they all love their “jobs.” (It’s not a job if you love what you do)
The food was phenomenal. EVERYTHING was
so delicious. I never went hungry. Orlando, had me LOVING things I would’ve never touched at home. Truly amazing food.
The game drives were outstanding. Matt, one of the tour guides, is SO knowledgeable and he loves to share his knowledge with the guests. There isn’t a question about South Africa’s wildlife he can’t answer. He made waking up at
5am for morning drive worth it because he kept it interesting and fun!
The lodge itself is extremely cute! The view is absolutely breathtaking from the deck. Even from your tents the view is amazing. You can see wildlife passing right through! I was even able to see elephants right from the lodges deck!!! Hanging at the lodge never got boring, the staff are all so friendly and welcoming. Especially Shanna, she is such a sweetheart, and has so many cool/unbelievable stories! (She even has a book with her amazing story that they sell at the lodge!!!)
The tents are gorgeous, and the beds a super comfy. Even being in the tent by myself, I felt safe and was able to fall asleep with no problem. (I voluntarily stayed up to listen to animal sounds and was able to hear lions calling close by!!!) The outside shower is one of my favorite parts of the tent!
Over all this place is a MUST. I can’t say enough positive things about it. NOT ONE COMPLAINT.
If you’re looking for a sign, this is it. BOOK YOUR STAY AT SAUSAGE TREE. You won’t regret it.
