Notten’s Bush Camp

Notten’s Bush Camp is a family owned safari camp with only 8 rooms and a very unique eco friendly concept. It’s also rated number one in guest satiscation on Tripadvisor in Sabi Sabi and I was excited to see how good it could be.

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge took me to Notten’s which are a bit cheaper than Bush Lodge. I received a warm welcome from Dale, which has worked at Notten’s since the early 90’s. I was offered a drink before being escorted to the room. I stayed in a Standard Suite which was unique and true to the concept of Notten’s. It’s the first room I’ve stayed without any electricity which instead had candles.

The service was very good as the staff was very kind and helpful, but of course a different world compared to Singita which also charges 5 times more pr. night. With only 8 rooms personalized service is a must and they really delivered as I felt like a guest, not a number.

The game viewing was great and the reason people travel all the way to Sabi Sand from all over the world. The food was mostly buffet which I personally don’t like, but this was fully OK, without being special. The internet is only available in their office, but was fast.

Overall a unique experience. Their eco friendly concept was very interesting to experience. Recommended for it’s value and the fact that they have very satisfied guests.

My opinion: Good+ experience.
