Nottens Bush Camp
Nottens Bush Camp is owned and run by the Nottens Family and was actually their home until a few years ago. It has now become an intimate camp where the emphasis is on authenticity, personal service and relaxation so that you can fully enjoy the African wildlife and peaceful atmosphere that is so captivatingly "Notten’s". The success of this formula is evident as they have had more repeat business than any lodge that we know of.
Nottens Bush Camp is a destination that will truly touch your heart and soul in the Greater Kruger National Park. As one of the original Sabi Sands game lodges, it has a magical bush atmosphere and offers a truly authentic African safari experience.
The absence of electric lighting at Nottens Bush Camp is intentional, and the ambient candlelight and lanterns create an enchanting spirit of romance. Each of the seven private suites at Nottens Bush Camp is elegantly styled, spacious and cooled by ceiling fans. The suites are open plan with en-suite bathrooms, and both indoor and outdoor shower facilities. Each suite leads onto a private wooden deck with a beautiful view of the bush.
Enjoy candlelit baths, massages, mesmerizing nights at Nottens Bush Camp around blazing fires and close encounters with Africa's Big 5 at this world class private safari lodge in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. In between game drives, guided walking safaris are an option, or you can choose to laze at the sparkling pool.
Facilities at Nottens Bush Camp are available for the re-charging of video cameras and batteries in the safari lodge's reception area. Cell phone and internet connectivity is not good (we suggest you make plans to leave the stress of the modern world behind). A main line telephone facility is also available.
Sabi Sands is a remarkable natural sanctuary known for its exceptionally high concentration of animal and bird life. Safaris are led by experienced rangers in open-top land rovers, offering an adventurous discovery of the region's prolific wildlife, including Big 5 game viewing at Nottens Bush Camp.
The legacy of this private safari lodge in South Africa is now in its third generation in the Nottens, as well as the Matabula family. Specter Matabula was employed by the family in 1963 and he would be proud to know that his son and his son's children are now a part of Nottens Bush Camp South Africa.
