Overview of Notten’s Bush Camp

Visitors come back to Notten’s Bush Camp again and again – and it is easy to see why. It is one of the original private game lodges in South Africa, with decades of experience represented by the fourth generation of Nottens that operate the camp. The camp has an authentic ‘Out of Africa’ feel and wildlife is abundant in this unfenced corner of the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Do not be surprised to see plains game and even elephants strolling past the suites and main decks.

Notten’s Bush Camp has just eight suites with extra-spacious bedrooms, high ceilings and antique furniture as well as private lounge areas. More than a place to sleep, these tranquil abodes are great for retreating from the group and enjoying uninterrupted views from your balcony. There is no electricity and oil lamps and candles enhance the feeling of being in the wild, on a traditional safari. Treat yourself to a massage at the Nature Spa after a game drive or relax at the pool.

    The camp prides itself on fine cuisine with dinner being a social affair, where guests gather at the boma and eat along with the Notten family, the staff and other guests. Breakfast is a huge spread with both hot and continental options available. The next big meal is a buffet high tea or lunch at around three o’clock before the afternoon safari activity. Dinner is usually a three-course meal and includes vegetarian options.
