Is Crime A Concern in Sabi Sand?

Is crime a concern at lodges in Sabi Sand? I'm imagining that there is significant security at Singita, but thought I'd ask anyway. Thank you.

Whenever and wherever I travel in Africa I leave high-end items at home, with the exception of my photo gear. When at safari lodges, I don't worry about my photo gear. When otherwise touring I keep the gear close to me, never leaving it in a car for example for even the shortest time.

8 trips in Sabi Sands, never has an item missing big or small (except I think a pair of socks got missing in the laundry).

I never even locked my door (although I did put extra cash and passport in the safe).

The thieves you have to be concerned about are the monkeys. They made off with a few items I had hanging out to dry.

The question could (easily) attract a bunch of snarky answers.. but it does reflect how little many travelers really know about ordinary life in South Africa.
