We stayed at Nottens for four nights. The camp is owned by David Notten who is the third generation to run the camp.
Nottens is by far our best safari experience in South Africa and over 10 years we have visited many camps.
It is the perfect balance, being of a very high standard but not so luxurious as to spoil the experience of being in the bush.
The gave viewing was awesome - we saw leopard mating, leopard with a kill in a tree, 10 lion cubs with their mothers and a significant quantity of elephant as well as the usual buck.
The food is simple and of very high quality and the accommodation is of an equally high standard. Make sure you ask for Chase as your guide as he seems to be able to find any game you wish to see.
