If you do one thing in your life then you MUST, MUST, MUST take a trip to Nottens Bush Farm. The most extraordinary 4 nights and 3 days of our South African trip. A family run business and you can tell because they take the extra care and attention. The food was fabulous, the wine ever flowing and service outstanding.... More

I can't think of a single thing that I would change about our stay at Nottens. We felt like family from the moment we arrived but were treated like royalty. We saw the big 5 within 24 hours of arriving and had the most exhilarating experiences up close with the animals. Our driver (Geoffrey) and tracker (Abe) were a dream... More

We visited Notten's as part of our honeymoon and it was fantastic. The whole experience was 5* but in a very understated way. The team couldn’t do enough for us and really made us feel welcome. The accommodation and social areas are lovely with views of a watering hole for extra opportunities to spot the wildlife. The rooms are stylish... More

From the moment you arrive & warmly welcomed by most of the staff you know this is is going to be special. The rooms are very comfortable, perhaps luxurious. There are only 8 rooms which ensures a very personal experience.The staff can't do enough for you. The game drives early morning & late afternoon revealed all the animals you want... More

We were a family of five, and another couple visited South Africa in March 2015, and stayed at this camp for the safari experience. A rustic place. We were skeptical at the beginning due to not having light, and it being such a small outfit. However these turned out to be the highlights of the camp. Due to the small... More

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
