I loved the Notten's Bush Camp. The safari times are great! There are complimentary bush walks! Its unlimited food and bottomless drinks and the staff are always willing the help. The fact its a private park means the animals can be found easily and they can be approached very closely as they are accustomed to the safari land cruisers. Highlight... More

I echo what others have said - this family run lodge is very well run with friendly staff. I spent two nights - I liked the lack of electricity. It added to the charm of the place. I was amazed to see all the big 5 in a 24 hour period. Nottens is good value compared to some other lodges... More

What a wonderful place this is. You are so warmly greeted on arrival like a friend of the family that you soon feel at home. I can't thank the staff enough for their attentiveness, and the knowledge and friendliness of the ranger/tracker was exceptional too - it has already been said in the other reviews. There are only two major... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and found everything was faultless-the game drives and the food were amazing and the accommodation was very spacious.Nothing was too much trouble-even plugging in my e-cigarette! A special thanks to Dale and Pinghi-Barry and Sue Cozens,Manchester,UK.

Wonderful,small, comfortable, private lodging, great food, impeccable service, super game drives (they can go off road here and did) and to top it off there's and open bar with some very fine single malts. As mentioned in some of the other reviews, it's a little different not having electricity at night, and it's a little... More

Love at first sight! My husband and I spent the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in Notten's mid June 2014. The jet leg and the tiredness from taking 3 flights and a 2 hour road transfer was compensated by the luxury and calmness at Notten's. We stayed at Villa No 3 (I think) which was a stone throw away... More

We visited Nottens at the end of May 2014 for 3 nights. It’s a truly excellent place to stay with large, comfortable and clean rooms. We loved the fact that there were no electric lights in the rooms as when you returned from the afternoon/evening drive the oil lamps (complete with hurricane glasses) were already lit, making the room cozy...

We stayed for our honeymoon a year ago and had the most amazing time. The food and drink was amazing. The staff so friendly. So many nice touches. We loved the fact that the rooms were lit by candlelight and the hot water bottles for the morning drives. A great stay!
