Really great experience overall. The owner Dave and his staff are excellent, and always on hand if needed. The main staff member Gift always went above and beyond. As other reviews mention, there are no electric lights at night, and no heat in the rooms. Some people complain about this, but it truly makes you feel like you're in the...

A fantastic experience due to the superior accommodations, outstanding location, great / plentiful food and phenomenal staff. My 96 year old father and I recently returned from his "bucket list" trip. One of the highlights of our trip was the three amazing nights spent at Notten's Bush Camp. The staff could not have been any friendlier (seriously!) from the moment...

Notten's is a wonderful family run camp in the Sabi Sand Private Reserve. Out chalet/room was huge with a deck, large soaking tub, and indoor and outdoor showers. The food is OUTSTANDING and they feed you too well. Morning game drives left at 6:30 am and returned at 9:30. Prior to departure, a thermos of hot water is delivered to...

I've been going to Nottens for a few years now. I love it there. The staff are incredible, food delicious, rooms comfortable. But the game drives are just fantastic! I always feel sad when we leave. Thank you to the Nottens family for making it memorable each and every time.

Very nice "rustic" safari lodge with minimal electricity, but the kerosene lamps and candles sure add to the ambience. Add to that a very very attentive staff (Gift is simply amazing..bringing us cold drinks while we relax in the sun without even asking!), great food, and desire to serve (sundowners in the wilderness, camp fires, etc). Even picked up a...

Notten's has beautiful rooms, really delicious food, and amazing ambiance! We really loved the candlelit dinners and rooms. Service was outstanding! Take advantage of the outdoor shower -- it's lovely. We had good wifi reception in the small lounge area just outside the gift shop. We saw great animals and had an unforgettable time. Thanks, Notten's!

I am beyond impressed by Notten's Bush Camp. Staff are amazing and friendly - they make you feel welcomed and special. Guides and trackers are skilled so you have a good chance of seeing the animals.

This is the perfect place for your safari experience. The accommodations are both indulgent and rustic, all with porches overlooking the bush where animals wonder by, with indoor and outdoor showers and comfortable sitting areas. The guides were exceptional, knowledgeable and completely committed to ensuring that visitors get to see as many animals as possible including the "Big Five." We...

Notten's provided a fabulous experience from start to finish. We stayed 3 nights. We had fabulous sightings of animals on our trips out and at the camp itself.
