Nottens Bush Camp is a family owned and managed lodge. The 8 individual private suites are elegantly styled with spacious en-suite bathrooms boasting large baths and elaborate sunken outdoor showers. All the suites open out to private wooden viewing decks. The purposeful absence of electric lighting creates a magical atmosphere under the ambient light of candles and lanterns. The open boma is where you will enjoy candlelit meals under the African sky.

Days 3-4 – SABI SAND PRIVATE GAME RESERVE: Enjoy two full days of safari activities including morning and evening game drives in open-top Land Rovers.  Bush walks are also offered daily.  The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is a 250 square mile reserve, pioneered by the landowners in the 1950’s. Today, their legacy is the successful conservation of the highest density of big game in South Africa. Even with the unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, the game in the Sabi Sand Reserve is well habituated resulting in unforgettable close encounters and prolific sightings, particularly of the elusive leopard. The Sabi and the Sand Rivers run through the reserve, which add to the bio-diversity of this area. Meals and overnights at Nottens Bush Camp. (B, L, D, Dr)
