My daughter and I spent 3 nights at Notten's in March 2017 and we loved everything about it! We loved the fact that we were teamed up with the same driver/tracker/four other guests in the same car over the course of all the days - we had such fun together and really got involved in trying to spot the animals....

My husband and I spent two days at Notten's for safari before travelling on to Cape Town. We had a fantastic visit -- the rooms are lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, the guides were fantastic (we saw the Big 5 plus wild dogs!!) and the food could not have been better. My husband is allergic to gluten, and the...

This place is magi, the staff is so kind that they made me feel at home. The rooms are very big and well decorated. They offer fresh food, for example I loved the muffins just baked in the morning. The rangers have experience and take you very close to the animals.I can't wait to visit it again. Strongly recommended!

Notten's Bush Camp was the first part of our honeymoon in ZA and it couldn't have been more perfect. We've been picked up at Skukuza airport by Kenneth, one of the trackers, and could already enjoy bush feeling when driving through the wonderful Sabi Sand Wildtuin to the lodge. The lodge is beautiful. Tasteful African decor in the communal area...

The rooms are spacious and all have balconies to relax on.The use of oil lamps and candles to light your way adds to...

We spent a delightful five days at Notten’s Bush Camp in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in mid-March and could not have been more pleased with the experience. Based on what we have learned from others, we believe you cannot find a bush camp with any greater opportunity to get up close and personal with all the animals South Africa...

This was not our first game camp or safari experience but it rates as one of the best. You can read specifics in some of the other reviews but suffice it to say, they left no stones unturned to provide guests with a very special experience. I don't see how you could possibly go wrong with Notten's.

We have stayed at 6 lodges over the past 2 years - from basic to super luxurious and Nottens rates as one of our favourites! I can only echo what other reviewers have said: it is incredibly atmospheric with only candles and lanterns at night. The decor is tasteful colonial in style, clean, spacious, airy, and classy. Dale is an...

I don't know where to start! This Bush Camp is amazing. Our first safari experience will never be forgotten it was an experience of a lifetime. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The quality of the food amazing - the Braai, cooked by Dale, the Manager, was to die for - fillet steak as you have never tasted before....
