  • Description
  • Facilities
Notten's Bush Camp is part of the Sabi-Sand Game Reserve, Mpumalanga, and its best kept secret. This is a privately owned region situated within the greater Kruger National Park ecosystem, which is one of South Africa's most treasured natural sanctuaries. It's neighbours are the south western side of the Kruger National Park, Mala Mala on the eastern boundary and Sabi Sabi on the western boundary. The Big 5 Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard all roam the Sabi-Sand Game Reserve one therefore has an excellent chance of a close encounter with these animals.

As there are no fences between the private game reserves and the Kruger National Park, the animals can move unhindered between the two areas.

Notten's prides itself in having highly qualified guides and Shangaan trackers who ensure that their guests experience an informative and enlightened exposure to the area. Virtually all of the large mammals that occur naturally in the area are resident in the reserve as well as many of the smaller mammals.

The camp itself is situated under a canopy of indigenous riverine trees, African Ebony and Marulas leadwoods. Six chalets accommodate a maximum of ten guests at a time. The Nottens guests do not just visit a game reserve. They enter Bambi and Gilly's home; they get to know the Notten's and their life. Personal attention is their forté. Gilly and Bambi Notten and their staff will ensure that your stay is an unforgettable experience.

If it's exclusivity, comfort and an intimate experience that one is seeking, away from the hassles of city life. Notten's is the answer. All game drives are undertaken in an open four-wheel drive Land Rover with an experienced game ranger and Shangaan tracker. The tracker has an innate and instinctive attunement to the environment of the African bush. He uses his acute senses of sight and smell to navigate easily and swiftly through the bush in order to locate game.

Night drives begin in time to experience the spectacular lowveld sunsets. On these one sees the nocturnal bush creatures as well as other game under spotlight. The tracker is able to spot the eyes of the animals in the pitch dark night. Cool off next to the sparkling pool with refreshments from the fully stocked bar, or relax in the shade of the Marula trees on the wooden deck overlooking the waterhole.

Accommodation consists of beautifully appointed suites with open-plan bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Two of the chalets have both indoor and outdoor shower facilities. All windows and sliding doors are fitted with screens and insect coils are provided. Each suite leads onto a private wooden deck with a beautiful view of the bush. The Tulbagh Hotel now has a conference facility for up to 35 delegates.

All chalets have hot showers but no electricity, paraffin lamps and candles are used for lighting. All the rooms are cooled with an overhead ceiling fan. Facilities are available for the re-charging of video machines and camera batteries in the reception area. A main line telephone facility is also available.

All rates are per person per night. Rates are fully inclusive of three meals, accommodation, two game drives and a bush walk per day. Excluded is the bar, laundry and telephone.

The weather was rubbish but aside from that - great game viewing, excellent food and a very friendly atmosphere.
