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.
