Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge, Sabi Sand, South Africa






Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge, Sabi Sand, South Africa
My heart is pounding so hard I can hear it in my ears. Suddenly my daughter shoots a dirty look my way and says through gritted teeth ?he can sense your fear?. Little does she know it is excitement instead of fear. My favorite predator is making eye contact with me ? a majestic leopard is grooming the remnants of his warthog kill off himself while we look on.

We had traversed the Sabi Sand reserve earlier in the afternoon and tracker Betuel Sithole thought he spotted leopard paw prints. A smell so foul permeates the air that ranger Andries Mathebula exclaims we have just driven over leopard ?poopy?. Unbeknownst to everyone on the vehicle Mr Leopard, affectionately known as Tingana, has stashed his warthog kill in the entrance to a burrow. We smell the carcass before we see the leopard. He is having trouble extracting his meal that is stuck and is taking little bites out of the dead animal and re-emerges to chew. After a particularly intense feed where he has blood streaming down his chin, he elegantly starts his fastidious grooming process. We leave the sighting and the now unbearable stench of the decaying warthog.

Let me start at the beginning. Due to a rental car problem, we arrive at Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge much later than anticipated. Assistant general manager Dinho Pelembe arranges that our luggage be offloaded and our ranger will meet us at reception to join the evening game drive. I am so exultant that my animal FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) would not be jeopardised, I could have kissed him!
Through a cloud of dust, Andries arrives and loads us into the game drive vehicle. ?There is a special surprise for you?, Dinho joyfully declares. Excitement abounds, we pass by a waterbuck, a brown snake eagle and a nyala into the setting rays of the sun. Across the water from the lodge, the drinks stop is illuminated with fairy lights and is named ?Hlangano?. This is not your average drinks stop ? it is a beautifully displayed food truck containing biltong, samoosas, home-made crisps and the most delicious pizza you can imagine! All lovingly attended to by the Chitwa Chitwa staff and executed to perfection by General Manager Stefan du Toit.

Back at the lodge, we are taken to our impressive room, Suite 10, which is stylishly decorated in shades of white, charcoal and dark wood. A fire is crackling to ward off the evening chill and a swift diving sound has Dinho scurrying for a torch. Below our deck a hippo is taking refuge and I quietly decide tonight is not the night for an outside shower.
The room is substantial in size, with a very large en-suite bathroom, double vanities, a sunken bath and an indoor and outdoor shower. Patio doors open onto a view of the watering hole with a comfortable daybed for your indulgence. Here, you can spend your days in the plunge pool and be assured that the only disturbance you may encounter is that of an animal grazing or your butler serving lunch ...
