Notten’s Bush Camp is a family-run safari lodge of just eight suites, overlooking a waterhole in the southern Sabi Sand Private Reserve – arguably the best reserve in South Africa. A lap pool, manicured lawn, pavilion and spa offer plenty of opportunities for you to soak up the African ambience in between game drives.
