Lodge (Malilangwe Game Reserve) Zimbabwe
Singita Pamushana Lodge is located near Buffalo Range,
within the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve in south-eastern
Zimbabwe and is set within a remote wilderness area that is
bounded in the west by the rich riparian woodland flanking
the Chiredzi River, which flows into the larger Runde River
in the south-west of the property. To the south-east is
Gonarezhou (‘place of the elephants’) National Park and
Mozambique’s Banyini and Zinave Parks. Perched on top of an
escarpment, with spectacular panoramic views, Pamushana is
the most exquisite lodge in Africa.
Built amongst the rocks and trees of this spectacular
precipice, using indigenous building materials and
traditional African thatching, Pamushana blends in
beautifully with the surrounding environment.
There is a twice-weekly return flight to Buffalo Range
Airport from Johannesburg's O.R. Tambo International Airport
on Mondays and Thursdays. Singita Pamushana Lodge is a
scenic 15-minute drive from the airport. Simply Africa's Finest!
Each villa is an extravagant space, built with intricate
hand-hewn stone work, reminiscent of Great Zimbabwe.
Exotic works of art and richly textured materials from
all over Africa blend in with hand-carved tables, big
comfortable chairs, shelves of books and bowls of fruit
creating a tranquil ambience. Walls of sliding glass lead out onto a teak leisure deck
where you can lie in your own swimming pool enjoying the
The lodge's five luxury suites and one villa are set amid
lush gardens and feature spacious decks, their own private
plunge pools, and incredible views of the Malilangwe Dam and
sandstone hills in the distance. There are twice daily game
drives with an experienced guide and tracker, or you can
book a San Bushman Rock Art tour and see monuments dating
back 2000 years.
As you enter the main complex through mosaic tiled
pillars, you face a 'reflection pool' of shimmering water
with a backdrop of the sky and mountains beyond. There is a
swimming pool, a game viewing deck, lawns and patios for
relaxing and sun-bathing.
There is also a fully equipped gymnasium, sauna and gift
boutique. The circular dining room is quite unique. The
entire interior has been hand-painted with a detailed mural
depicting the magic of the African bush, complete with wild
animals and birds.
There is also an 'al fresco' dining deck, overlooking the
Malilangwe lake. Pamushana prides itself on excellent
cuisine and attentive, but unobtrusive, service. Lounges,
library, dining room, al fresco dining deck, swimming pool
(which can be heated in winter), game viewing deck with
telescope and open fireplace, fully equipped gymnasium,
sauna and gift boutique. The innovative design and boldly
opulent decor provide unrivalled luxury and glamour in the
