This place has got the safari model spot on. The rooms are spacious with a feature that there is no electric light so you only have the glow of the lantern to go by which is a different experience. Great guides with safari's early in the morning and late afternoon early evening. David and Dale joined the group for dinner... More

We stayed here after attending our daughter wedding in Cape Town. A small lodge with friendly knowledgeable staff and a superb driver and tracker. Less expensive than some but much better value. Can not say enough good about our experience there.

Lovely welcoming and warm atmosphere, excellent service, super-duper food and dining layout, very experienced rangers, and wonderful animals seen!! Tireless efforts by manager and staff to make life comfortable for my... More

I've just spent 4 nights here with the aim of spending time with wildlife and indulging a love of photography. Nottens is a great place for this. The lodge comprises of only 8 cottage bedrooms around a large central terrace, deck and bar. One of the cottages lacks a direct bush view and is used for single travellers in return... More

Everything about our three-night stay was wonderful. The staff, the accommodation, the food, the animals.... It's not any one aspect that does it, it's the combination of everything. Nothing lets it down. There are so many great memories; the pre-dinner drinks around a fire in the bush, for example. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, and clearly cared very much for...

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
