Notten’s Bush Camp is a jewel within the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in Mpumalanga, which means “the land of the rising sun” in the locally spoken language, Shangaan. Notten’s is an exclusive and private safari lodge personally run by the Notten family. This beautiful, intimate safari lodge is situated within one of South Africa’s finest natural sanctuaries the Sabi Sand Reserve and Greater Kruger National Park. It is a destination that will truly touch your heart and soul.Each private suite is elegantly styled, spacious and cooled by ceiling fans. A magical atmosphere is created with the purposeful absence of electric lighting; the ambient candlelight and lanterns capturing an enchanting spirit of romance. With splendid panoramic views, this private game lodge is the perfect place for peace and relaxation while watching animals meander past.

There aren't enough stars on the planet to give Notten's the rating they deserve. We loved everything about Notten's and getting to know our guide was the best part of all. Seeing the Big 5 (and much more!) was a fun and exciting experience and the food and service was spectacular. During our 20 days in South Africa we spent time at other much more expensive places and we would not hesitate to pick Notten's again and again. If you are concerned about Covid, all activities (including meals) are outdoors and we felt comfortable and safe at all times. Vaccinations are really ramping up in SA and even though we were a bit nervous about traveling (due to both Covid and recent unrest), it turned out to be the perfect timing for travel. Could not recommend Notten's highly enough! Oh,

I've visited other Sabie lodges which may be more 'upmarket' (do you need all of that on safari?) but none come close to Nottens family touch, genuine friendlyness (read not put-on) and excellent food. Nottens owner (Dave Notten) serves drinks at the bar every night and chats to guests as if he's known them for years. Our accommodation faced an open bush area with a water a hole so many, many game were viewed from our bungalow. They put on a braai (bbq) one night deep in the bush for all guests and a staff member put on a show mimicking animal saounds. Absolute joy. We didnt see the big 5, buy hey that's safari for you but Nico our driver/guide was excellent and his knowledge of trees, birds and animals is remarkable. We can't wait to return to Nottens.

A group of us recently went to Nottens Bush Camp. I would recommend this place without reservations! The service was excellent, the staff always attentive and accommodating and the food was second to none. Special thanks to our guides who made this bucket list a truly memorable experience. The rooms were well maintained and a great place to relax. We saw not only the Big 5 but Cheetah and Hippos as well. We learned later after going to other countries in Africa on this trip, how lucky we were to be in Sabi Sands. Being private area within Kruger National Park allowed many off road adventure to find the elusive creatures. I would also recommend that you visit this time of year (winter) - no mosquitoes, better weather and better ability to see the various animals.

My family (myself, my husband, and four adult children) spent an amazing four nights at Notten's! We were picked up at Skukuza airport by Notten's staff and actually encountered several animals on our drive to the camp. We had a total of eight game drives where we saw everything - The Big Five, The Little Five, The Ugly Five, and lots of other animals and birds. We even saw the Wild Dogs on our last morning, Our driver/guides Jeff and Keenan worked hard to show us all of the game. We also participated in some of the late morning bush walks where we encountered animal tracks and learned extra facts about the animals and their habits. The rooms were lovely and comfortable with an outdoor shower and a warm bath waiting for us after our evening game drive. All of the food and drinks

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
