In comfort and luxury, one may stay at Notten's Bush Camp and observe South African wildlife in its natural habitat. The 8 suites are set up in an open layout with private bathrooms and indoor and outdoor shower facilities. Rooms are bright and well-kept, with overhead ceiling fans to keep cool. At night, candle lit settings add to the romance of this getaway. Meals are consistent, with snacks and entrees served regularly. One may choose from African delicacies to international necessities. Learn more about untamed creatures and plan a game drive, where guests come upon elephants, lions, and the rest of the Big Five. Otherwise, lounge by the swimming pool with a good book.
Nottens's Bush Camp is a jewel within the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in Mpumalanga, which means “the land of the rising sun” in the locally spoken language, Shangaan. Notten’s is an exclusive and private safari lodge personally run by the Notten family. This beautiful, intimate safari lodge is situated within one of South Africa’s finest natural sanctuaries. It is a destination that will truly touch your heart and soul. Each private suite is elegantly styled, spacious and cooled by ceiling fans. A magical atmosphere is created with the purposeful absence of electric lighting; the ambient candlelight and lanterns capturing an enchanting spirit of romance. With splendid panoramic views, this private game lodge is the perfect place for peace and relaxation while watching animals meander past.
Notten's Bush Camp's accommodation consists of beautifully appointed suites with open plan bedroom and en-suite bathroom. All suites have both indoor and outdoor shower facilities. All windows and sliding doors are fitted with screens and insect coils are provided. Each suite at Notten's Bush Camp leads onto a private wooden deck with a beautiful view of the bush. Paraffin lamps and candles replace electric lighting for ambience and all the rooms are cooled with an overhead ceiling fan.
The food at Notten’s is always delicious and it is known as one of the finest private safari lodges in Mpumalanga. Meals are a social event and guests gather in the enclosed boma around a log fire under a canopy of stars in winter or in the open plan summerhouse lit up with candlelight during summer. Meals are eaten together around one communal table, with the company of the Notten’s and their Notten’s Bush Camp team. This creates a wonderful atmosphere and an opportunity for the guests to share stories and conversation with other interesting people from South Africa and around the world.
The excellent cuisine consists of a traditional bush breakfast with fresh fruits, yogurts, mueslis and freshly baked muffins followed by eggs of one’s choice, crispy bacon, fried tomatoes, mushrooms, and the chef’s speciality of the day.
