This place is just incredible. I was greeted by an entourage with a drink and made to feel so welcome. Special mention to Kim, who was such a fantastic host.

The grounds of the lodge are beautiful with amazing facilities...a huge swimming pool, great for burning off all the food they give you :)

The dining area overlooks a huge expanse of the bush where animals are meandering freely in front of you....not a bad way to have your eggs :). The dinners are delicious...
But the real star is Kruger...the drives are mind-blowing....the variety of wildlife was a pleasure to witness and the proximity to real Lions and Rhinos and so much more is unreal...but this is only really possible because of the skill of the drivers and trackers at Notten's....they can spot a lions footprint from 100m while driving the 4x4's and talking to you. Ask for Thomas....he's the man.
One of the best experiences I have had in my life.

We were greeted at the Skukuza airport by Notten’s staff where our amazing adventures began! We stayed four nights at Notten’s and everyone we came in contact with was so genuinely nice and helpful. The food was delicious. The Safari drives/driver and animal sightings were amazing. The staff was superb.
The rooms were spacious with updated bathrooms, large sitting areas and outdoor patios. The communal areas were open and large. The grounds were lovely. We did try a quick dip in the pool which was refreshing. Evenings were magical with lanterns all over camp and dinner by candlelight. Dinner in the Boma as well as a sundowner ‘meet-up’ in the bush were extra special.
We had plenty of electrical outlets to charge our devices/cameras and electrical lights in the rooms-bathrooms. There are still candles if you prefer those too!
All around a simply wonderful time for our family at Notten’s!

We spent 4 nights at Nottens bush Camp. We flew into Skukuza airport and were met by Thomas our ranger who greeted us with a warm smile and an ice cold drink. The transfer took 45 minutes to the lodge. On arrival at the lodge we were met and greeted with a lovely cold towel and a glass of water. Welcomed and shown to our room within minutes. The lodge has 9 rooms which are spacious, they have air conditioning, two ceiling fans. There is a full bathroom and an outside shower. Each room has a lovely verandah. Their is a small hairdryer in the room however no mirror in the room or near a plug to connect too. Perhaps they could look at this. The room is very comfortable and well appointed. The main lodge area is very comfortable with a lounge area, comfortable seating arrangements over looking the bushveld and watering hole. There is a very well equipped bar and wine cellar. The food was outstanding, every meal was different and very delicious. The service at the lodge was outstanding. The game drives were excellent and the game ranger was very knowledgeable and interesting. We saw the Big 5 a few times and had other excellent sightings. We also enjoyed a bush walk which was a wonderful experience. The camp has a swimming pool, gym and spa. It was very relaxing and the other guests were very friendly and the entire experience was wonderful. Thank you and well done.

Where do start, I loved every aspect of our stay here. The rooms are very nice,better then the pictures on the website. The food, accommodation and service are impeccable! The most special thing about Nottens is unquestionably the staff they are genuinely the warmest, most helpful and friendly people I have had at any lodge I have stayed at. It’s not put on it’s genuine and after two days we felt like family. Jan and her team are unreal the food is just too awesome they accommodated all our dietary needs, I was never without a drink in hand. The game drives were awesome we saw the big five with some incredible sightings and our ranger Tinyeko went out of his way to get us great sightings. If I have one complaints it’s the chairs at the pool, they are very uncomfortable. Other then that would I return....immediately I would love to and I will!

Wow, wow and wow again!! What an incredible stay at Nottens Bush camp! We have been fortunate enough to experience over ten other lodges in the Sabi Sands and this is hands down the best lodge! Our ranger Tinky was outstanding and the sightings were unbelievable, all the big five and more. The best leopard sightings we have ever had and some amazing photographic opportunities. The lodge is beautiful, peaceful and staff are amazing, so professional, polite and attentive. I was blown away by how proactive the staff were. I have never experienced anything like this before, they are always thinking about what their guests might need next. It was also great to have drinks included in the cost so you don't have to keep track of all the extras you add on during your stay. The food was plentiful and so tasty, we longed for each meal, although we need to get back into the gym now. Nottens even has a gym if you have time during your relaxing stay to have a workout. The 20m infinity pool was the best, we loved relaxing here on the deck chairs with a cocktail, dipping in as often as we could. The spa pool was also great to enjoy and was a bit cooler in the midday sun. It was the unexpected things that Nottens did that made this stay so memorable. On our first night stopping for sundowners they had set out a beautiful setting for the guests with lanterns, drinks, snacks and stories around the fire. I would highly recommend this lodge to couples and families who are looking for a truly memorable bush experience with some very special touches.
