Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, Sabi Sand, South Africa

My two favorite words are clearly audible over the two-way radio ? ?Mdoda Ingwe? followed by ?May I be on standby"?. My heart races faster than the speed our ranger Angelique Borlinghaus has picked up to get us to the sighting. A male leopard! Yes! ?He is on the move? is the update and I cannot hide my disappointment. ?Has he left the area"? I ask in my smallest voice, trying very hard to mask my dismay. ?We will take a look anyway,? she assures me.
Our family trip started two days earlier with an Airlink flight, flying us from Cape Town International Airport direct to the iconic Skukuza Airport in 2 hours and 30 minutes. The Airlink Embraer 135 flight is the most convenient way to get you from city to bush in true style, cutting down substantially on driving time to your destination, thus affording you more special moments on safari.
The decision to stay at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge was simplified by the fact that they offer a complete package of luxurious accommodation in a family friendly atmosphere. The four Sabi Sabi lodges form part of National Geographic?s Unique Lodges of the World, making them distinctive in their own right, claiming their equitable place through sustainability, authenticity and excellence. Second to my excitement of having my husband and daughter along with me was the trepidation of seeing wild animals in their natural habitat.
