Your Private Guided Safaris® Journey to Zimbabwe

Wildlife & activity: What you’ll see at Pamushana

An extraordinary wilderness area next to the Gonarezhou national park in southeastern Zimbabwe, the Private Malilangwe Reserve is an incredibly vast conservation model supported by Singita Pamushana Lodge (the single largest private donor investment in the country). This 130,000-acre private reserve is exclusively for the enjoyment of guests at Pamushana Lodge. In the preservation of the wildlife and the land's local culture, guests are enabled to take an active role in experiencing and playing steward to this most special place.

Professionally guided game drives with top resident rangers and game trackers provide opportunity to come close to a great number of animals including big cats such Black maned lions, cheetah and leopard, both species of White and Black Rhino, rare Lichtenstein hartebeest and Sable, African wild dog, and an abundance of bird life with over 400 species spotted.

At nighttime special spot lit drives reveal the nocturnal life of even more elusive wildlife species. All game drives occur in custom-designed state-of-the-art Land Cruisers with the finest Singita-trained guides. Game walks are also offered in this astoundingly beautiful landscape to track wildlife on foot.
Singita Pamushana Wildlife

The most exclusive Eco-luxury lodge in Zimbabwe.

All around you’ll enjoy dramatic hilltop views of the remote wilderness and lake - even from the exclusivity of your suite's very own private pool. Vibrant and colorful suites with handmade Shangaan fabrics and artefacts crafted by the community lend a bold ethnic influence in this calming retreat away from it all in remote Zimbabwe. After the day's exhilirating safari adventures take a restorative break at the spa. Gourmet international cuisine with fine wines is inclusive of your stay from the award-winning Singita cellars.
Singita Pamushana Zimbabwe
“You’ll see lots of Shangaan influence in the design and beautiful colors; the bright reds, blues and jewel tones that we’ve taken to a level of luxury. The lodge is vibrant and colorful which is authentic to Zimbabwean culture, with staff inspiring guests to exude that same joyfulness in being here.”

Kambako Museum

Kambako is the local Shangaan word for ‘Old Bull Elephant’. The Kambako Cultural Museum is an initiative of the local Shangaan families where visitors can walk through handbuilt working villages to learn about their rich heritage and bushcraft skills. “Kambako is like a wise, old man who is taking us in the right direction,” says Julius Matshuve, founder. “The older generation who know the old ways will soon be gone and the aim of the Living Museum is to teach their knowledge...”

Save the Black Rhino

At Pamushana visitors can track both species of remaining African Rhino: In addition to White Rhino, you can see Black Rhino - one of the most difficult-to-find species in Africa with very few individuals remaining in the wild. Since 1998, the Black Rhino rehabilitation program at Malilangwe has been most successful in establishing stronger rhino populations within a safe habitat. In June of 2015, 10 rhino were also relocated from this group to Botswana in protected habitats.

Child Feeding Program

Your visit here supports the not-for-profit Malilangwe Wildlife Trust: In addition to the care of the wilderness, the Pamushana model also feeds 19,000 children in Zimbabwe every single day and offers core community development with educational and longterm vocational undertakings. Further empowerment for the impoverished communities also ensures health care and irrigation schemes for agriculture, to grow food and offer provision for boreholes.

Special activities

Mountain biking through the reserve with your guide offers an upclose and personal interaction with the natural environment. Fun activities to be enjoyed by those priviledged to take off more than a handful of nights, include Tennis (2 tennis courts: clay and Rebound Ace), morning Archery lessons, and for golfers - a 45-minute excursion to nearby lush 9-hole courses. Unbelievable Stargazing in endlessly-deep, light-pollution free skies with astronomy guides is also offered.

Archaeology & hiking

In addition to learning about the Shangaan community: Walk in the footsteps of the San Bushman, one of the oldest cultures on earth - the original hunter-gatherers, and explore ancient rock art, tens of thousands of years old.

Dr Bruce Clegg, Resident Ecologist at the Malilangwe Trust, is one of the researchers undertaking studies in the preservation of Malilangwe’s incredible cultures
