If you read this piece, you’ll know that while we were in Zambia, we stayed at the gorgeous Sausage Tree Camp on the banks of the incredible Zambezi River. Not only is it very exclusive (the camp has capacity for just 16 guests), it also affords the most amazing views over the yawning hippos and grazing elephants who inhabit this vast river. This was my first safari so I was like a wide-eyed child when we first set off into the bush. And who knew, it turns out I’m a pretty deft wildlife spotter (our tracker’s words), as I became increasingly intrigued by the wildlife that live here. Of course, some of the most thrilling wildlife you’ll spot in Zambia are the bigger beasts – the hippos, lions and elephants – and seeing them for the first time blew my mind. After my visit, I wrote this piece for the Mail Online about the level of luxury you’ll find at Sausage Tree Camp, the bewitching sounds you’ll hear from your tent at night and sheer thrill of heading out into one of the wildest parts of Southern Africa.
