Both these lodges are great and i am sure you will enjoy your stay at either of them. choosing which one depends on your preferences. Nottens is more intimate and has no electricity. EP is quite a bit bigger but is excepionally good value.

If you want something more rustic (a real bush camp in my opinion), then have a look at Umlani in the Timbavati. It has a wonderful atmosphere.

Not sure if you are really looking for a Bush Camp but, if so, one of the very best is Shindzela. This is an unfenced camp on the border of Timbavati and Kruger proper. No electricity, lovely tents with bathroom facilities and concentration on a mix of walking safaris and game drives. Definitely a true bush experience and not a luxury hotel with animals! Also great value at around $220pppn for the three of you - all meals and game walks and drives included. One double tent plus one single.

Also look at the reviews here on TA which put it in the number one spot in the whole of Timbavati :
