We had great rangers(joe and Ridante) and saw leopards, lion and cheetah as well as other big 5. Great little game too and birds. The staff were all delightful and the cooking excellent. One point to note is that the rooms are lit by paraffin lamps which are very dim in the bathrooms if you need to shave or apply... More

Amazing place, food and service. The safari with the duo Thomas and Kenneth was great. They did their best to find the lions, but I was happy. The hyenas needs to be sedated, and get a good scrub :-) The best memory was the park bathed in the moonlight. Just standing there in the moonlight listening to the animals was... More

Our experience at Nottens made us fall in love at first sight! We spent three nights here and everything was beyond perfect. The drives are organised to perfection by people that know the nature like the back of their hand (THANK YOU TOM and KENNETH)! The drive, the passion they convey when they speak about the animals and the nature... More

My partner and I (29 & 22) are on holidays from Australia and we were initially going to spend our entire holiday in Cape Town with a visit to aquila private game reserve in the Western Cape however we read reviews saying it wasn't great due to a lack of authenticity and made the decision to head to Sabi Sands....

We had a delightful safari at Nottens in early January. Nottens is a luxurious lodge in Sabi Sand reserve, adjacent to Kruger Park. Our ranger—Geoffrey—had a sixth sense for finding wildlife, and so we enjoyed multiple sightings of lions, elephants, rhinos (even on a bush walk), leopards, buffalo, wild dogs, giraffes, zebra, and even a tiny chameleon. The wildlife sightings... More

This was my first time visiting Sabi Sands and I am so happy we decided on Nottens Bush Camp. It is a family-owned business with such a warm friendly staff, who went over and above to make out group comfortable and organize our itinerary for us. Our guide Joe and tracker Ryden were excellent. They went above and beyond to... More

Everything about our 3 night stay was perfect, except that we wanted to stay longer!! We have been to Sabi Sands several times on previous visits to Africa and Notten's is by far our favourite of any place we've stayed. From the moment you arrive, the staff make you feel as if you've come to their home as a special... More

There are some stays & places you just do not forget – Notten’s has to be at the top of this list of our places. From the booking process with Miu to the airport pickup and ending with the airport drop off, our experience was first class all the way. This is a family run business that cares and it... More
