Sausage Tree Camp – a Zambian bush experience

The Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi River is a place that holds so many feelings and special memories for me. I grew up on a farm a few hours from the river and I remember many school holidays spent on the Zambezi, waiting expectantly for the reel of my rod to whirl with the promise of a fish while watching elephant wade in belly-deep, lazily feeding on reeds and water hyacinth. In the evenings, we would sit as a family, around the newly-lit fire watching the sun go down behind the Zambian escarpment. Looking out over the river I would  wonder what it was like on the other side. Well, a week ago I got to find out!

As we flew over the river into camp, I saw firsthand the beauty of the area from the sky – it is quite remarkable! In what was something of a dream job for me, I spent eight days in camp documenting the comings and goings, the sunrises and sunsets to put together fresh marketing material for Sausage Tree and Potato Bush camps.  In amongst a fully booked camp, I photographed and filmed the typical in-camp guest experience  – from incredible game sightings a stones throw away, to the faces and personalities that tirelessly work to make each persons stay memorable and personal, right down to the fine details of the luxurious rooms – and I can confidently say that if you have the privilege to visit Sausage Tree Camp or Potato Bush Camp, you will be looked after and made to feel very  welcome.

In case you were wondering what the Zambezi is like from the Zambian side, I would say it is much the same as from Zimbabwe – wild and magic! The promotional video will be out in a few weeks. Keep an eye out for it.

Cheers

Buck
