Last July my husband and I spent 3 glorious days at Notten's. What a privilege! The staff attended to every detail. Our accomodations were wonderful and the food even better. On a game drive we had an opportunity to see a cheetah with its kill high in a tree. The lack of electricity made Notten's even more special!

All my emails were answered promptly...

I ended up choosing Notten's because of the location (Sabi Sands) and the great TripAdvisor reviews. I also liked the fact that it has been family run for 51 years and they have not sold out to the big corporations. It was outstanding, amazing, fantastic, incredible!!!! The guides and trackers were fabulous, the vehicles were not packed and there was...

Nottens Bush Camp is a well-run family lodge with friendly staff who go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. Great game viewing- we saw the big 5 in two days! The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The lodge gives you a warm, homely feeling and at night it is lit up with candles- making the whole place twinkle....

We stayed at Nottens for 3 nights in June 2014 with our 2 kids (13 and 9) and had the most amazing time. It was our first safari lodge in South Africa. Our room was gorgeous, service and food was impeccable and we saw so much wildlife over our 7 game drives. Our guide Tineko was lovely and so helpful....

Nottens came highly recommended on-line and from our travel agent. It did not disappoint. As a family run operation (with the owners and many long-time employees providing the service) along with its small size (8 rooms), the attention to customers was has hard to beat. There was a perfect balance of care and being left alone as needed. The routine...
