We are seasoned travelers who prefer the smaller more personal experiences wherever we go.
Nottens was recommended to us by an airline work colleague and we thank him.
From the moment we arrived at Nottens Bush Camp, our experience was just amazing.
If you can combine an amazing safari experience, five star accommodation not to mention the dining experiences, and lounging by the pool with a book and beer, you have the perfect holiday.
This is a family run Bush Camp (don't be fooled by the name) with generations of staff working there....a true testament to a great place.
There was a powerpoint in your room to charge your phones and camera batteries, a hot spot in the office to get your mail and we found the experience of the candlelight and lanterns in keeping with the ambience needed to attract the passing by of the animals.
I have never given anywhere more than 12 out of 10 in our 40 years of travel but I give Nottens 15/10.
We were lucky we had perfect weather, great mix of people and we got so see the big 5 and 4/5 of the ugly 5.
There were always a few little surprises for the guests along the way which made the experience even more special.
