Malilangwe Private Wildlife Reserve is set on 130 000 acres of private wilderness in Zimbabwe and is one of the most pristine wildlife areas in southern Africa. The region is embraced by the Malilangwe Mountain range and is home to a wide variety of game. The private reserve boasts an unusual habitat consisting of rocky outcrops and baobab trees, and as a result attracts vast amounts of unique animals and birdlife. Pamushana means “a place in the sun”, and this world-renowned safari lodge offers every modern comfort in a pristine setting.
In 1994, the not-for-profit Malilangwe Trust was established in order to purchase, protect, and manage the extraordinary wilderness area next to the Gonarezhou National Park in southeastern Zimbabwe.
Singita Pamushana Lodge is the ecotourism arm of this 130,000 acre reserve, and its role is to help foster the sustainability of the wildlife and broader ecology, while enabling guests to share the magic of the lodge and the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. Singita manages the lodge on behalf of the Trust and all proceeds from the lodge benefit the numerous conservation and community outreach and development programmes underway. This Zimbabwean based and managed Trust was set up to develop a blueprint for creating harmony between conservation initiatives and community development in villages that neighbour wildlife areas. The initiatives in place in the area have met with great success and each guest who visits Singita Pamushana makes a positive impact to this incredibly beautiful land and dynamic community.

Our game drives are all conducted in state-of-the-art Land Cruisers, each accommodating a maximum of six guests.

The one thing that sets Pamushana apart from other wildlife lodges in Africa is the fact that it offers a pristine wilderness, virtually untouched by mankind. The wildlife at Malilangwe Private Reserve is abundant in every sense. The region is home to 70 Black Rhino – one of the world’s largest concentrations of this endangered species. In terms of birdlife, Malilangwe is home to over 400 species (representing 4% of all the species of birds in the whole world) including 14 types of eagle.

During your stay at Singita Pamushana Lodge you are likely to spot a wide variety of wildlife including white and black rhino, Lichtenstein hartebeest, sable, nyala, klipspringer, cheetah, wild dog, lion, leopard, and an abundance of bird life.

Guided safari walks
Walking safaris are an incredible way to experience the bush up close and personal. Your expert guide and tracker will accompany you as you track animals on foot through the wilderness and explore the magnificent plants and landscapes around you.

Mountain biking
For the adventurous guest, a mountain bike ride through the reserve just can’t be beat. Your guide and tracker will accompany you as you explore the vast beauty of this rugged landscape. Mountain bikes and helmets are provided.

Water is a source of life and beauty, and no place is this more apparent than in the remote tranquility of the African bush. Fishing at the dam below the lodge is the ideal way to experience this wonder firsthand. Drop in a lure and see what bounty the day will bring, while your guide and tracker show you how the locals catch fish using plants found in the area. Singita Pamushana boasts excellent game fishing throughout the year including Tiger Fish, Bass, Bream (tilapia), and Catfish.

Stargazing safaris
There is perhaps no more transcendent experience than looking up at a full sky of sparkling stars. Man has had a love affair with the nighttime sky for centuries and with very little pollution and no city lights to detract from the stars, your view of the heavens here will be crystal clear – nothing between you and the vast African sky above.

Spend a morning taking lessons from your guide on how to shoot with a bow and arrow.
