There are many different ways to get to the Sausage tree Camp.
International arrivals into Zambia can be made through, Lusaka, Livingstone and Mfuwe International Airports. Both Lusaka and Livingstone have daily flights from Johannesburg (South Africa).
This is a relatively new flight option but can make a lot of sense to get to Sausage Tree Camp.
Proflight & RwandAir have scheduled flights from Johannesburg to Luaska / return. These fly every day except Sunday and are the perfect inbound flights for visitors as they are synchronized to enable Proflight Zambia’s passengers to seamlessly connect to and from its network. Please contact us for more details.
The majority of our guests fly by Cessna caravan (30 mins.) to "Jeki" airstrip, a dirt airstrip in the middle of the National Park. It is then a 1 hour game-drive/transfer through the park to Sausage Tree Camp.
The other more adventurous option is the road and boat transfer from Lusaka. This consists of a 2 ½ hr drive to Chirundu, a border town on the Zambezi River. From here you can transfer into one of our speed boats for a stunningly scenic boat cruise down the Zambezi, to Sausage Tree Camp, a further 2 ½ hrs. Depending on numbers (i.e. less than 4 people), this option is not likely to be the cheapest. Please contact us for more details.
A direct charter will take about 1hr 45 mins to Jeki. A more economical option is to fly via Lusaka, please contact us for the most appropriate option and availability.
Mfuwe is the main airport servicing the South Luangwa National Park and is about a 1hr 45min direct flight to Jeki.
