Thank you Nottens for the most wonderful stay. Keeping to your policy over the years of hosting limited numbers makes for a very special peaceful time with plenty of space and open air relaxation. The swimming pool was the perfect place to rest in between drives and walks through the bush.

With the very experienced guides and off road vehicles we were able to follow a leopard track and kill an impala. We closely observed cheetahs, lions, elephants and buffalo on our morning and evening drives and were able to hear and watch a baby rhino making sounds indicating to it’s mother that it needed to drink milk from her.
The sundowners, meals around the boma and sitting on the open verandah with views of the animals visiting the watering hole were magical. This is a destination that caters for everyone.
I look forward to returning to Nottens next year in August.

Room tip: All the rooms have good positions with views

Stylishly decorated, true comfort and spaciousness in a long established family bush camp. Great hospitality and attention to desired detail. wonderful food.
Game drives with personally allocated friendly driver.

I recently returned from Nottens Bush Camp and had the trip of a lifetime. The whole experience was superalative. From the ease of booking and the flexibility and friendliness shown by Mie in the reservation process which was complicated in these Covid times and the attentivness, proffessionalism and friendleness of the whole staff at Nottens. The owner David and the whole staff treats you like a family friend rather than a paying guest. The place is beautiful and luxurious but you still feel like you are out in the bush. And of course the highlight was the game drives you can pay ten times as much and not have better sightings. I saw numerous leopards, lions cheetah buffalo elephants baby impalas other mamals and numerous species of birds. But it wasnt only seeing the animals, at many of the sighings the animals were active and doing fascinating things and they also offer a daily bush walk. And the food and wine were gourmet. I want to thank Tineko ( an amazing field guide) Thomas Joe Keri Phindela Gift who all go out of their way to be helpful and a special thanks to the manager Dale who takes care of all your needs. Just can wait to come back Thank You Nottens-Alan

What a pleasure to spend three nights at Notten's Bush Camp. It is supremely comfortable, the service attentive and the food plentiful and delicious. But the real reason one would go there is for game viewing which was great. From watching the passing trade visiting the waterhole which is in full view from all the bedrooms and living areas to the morning and evening game drives i could not have asked for more. We saw leopard on three occasions, cheetah, elephant, plentiful rhino, all manner of buck - the list goes on and on especially if one were to start listing all the birds as well. The game ranger was knowledgeable and so good at spotting sightings. Notten's is a happy place. Despite the difficulties of the year everyone was cheerful and working hard to keep the camp going despite the drastic drop in international tourists. I was most impressed and deeply appreciative of the opportunity to experience such a special place.

I was supposed to spend 6 nights at Notten’s and had to extend my stay by another 3 nights. I just couldn’t stand to leave. It was the most unbelievable experience I’ve had. The rangers were outstanding, the game was incredible, the food was exceptional, the accommodation was relaxed luxury and the staff were friendly, full of humour and the vibe between management and the rest of the staff was relaxed and respectful. I never felt alone and was made to feel like I was included at all times. Thank you to everyone at Notten’s for giving me the best holiday ever. I can’t wait to return.
