Notten’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 local 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; 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 capture 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 accommodations consist of beautifully appointed suites with an 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 is regarded as one of the finest private safari lodges in Mpumalanga. Beneath a canopy of stars, meals are a social event in the enclosed boma around a log fire in winter or in the open plan summerhouse by 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 swap stories with others 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 cooked to your liking, crispy bacon, fried tomatoes, mushrooms, and the chef’s speciality of the day.
There is nothing as invigorating as watching Africa's wildlife in their natural habitat; the place where nature dictates the rules and humans are mere observers. Enjoy an unforgettable African lion safari in the wide expanse of the greater Kruger National Park ecosystem. Driving or being guided on foot by experienced rangers will bring you as close as you will ever be to true nature, the African way. With daily guided tours from early morning to late night drives, take part in an African safari beyond your wildest expectations.
