My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at Notten's in March, 2012. This is the closest experience you'll ever get to the real thing. Notten's is one of the most authentic private game reserve experiences we've had in our travels. It's not over the top but extremely comfortable. The food is exceptional and every meal is a surprise. The candle lit dinners were out of this world. Dave Notten, Dale and the Notten family treat you as one of their own. In a travel world that's become luxurious but impersonal, Notten's took us back to another time, another era when luxury meant warm, attentive and polite service at every turn. We loved our game drives and thought our two rangers, Jeff and Fox, must be two of the best at Kruger. We saw the Big 5 not once but several times. What a great place! We want to go back.
