WHat a wonderful place, everything everyone says is very very true, the food, the staff, accommodation, are all first class. OUr guide Geoff and his tracker Abe did a wonderful job each day of showing us so many animals, big and small. A lovely cake was served up for hubbys birthday which was great, would recommend Nottens wholeheartedly

We got to see the big 5 multiple times and even saw our tracker track a leopard which had killed and dragged its prey into a... More

You need a very long lead time to secure a booking at Nottens, but it was worth the wait in every possible sense. This is a very proud and successful family run business, and this evident from your very first encounter. When I sat next to Dave Notten at dinner, it became rapidly clear that they are keen to keep... More

We saw everything we wanted to see and more - giraffes with our sundowner drinks, rhinos with our morning tea stop and monkeys whilst using the outside shower (really recommend that shower).

Very good vacation. Nice food and the staff was excellent. If you want to see animals and especially leopards this is the place to be. We were here 3 days and saw leopards every day. One day We saw "Big 5" before breakfast.
