Perched high against the ochre sandstone cliffs within 130 000 acres (40 000 ha) of pristine wilderness within the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve in the south-east of Zimbabwe, Singita Pamushana is one of the hidden gems of Africa.
A Relais & Chateaux property, it exudes an air of complete tranquility and calm, with a bold design incorporating the majestic scale of the terrain. Merging first-world comforts with the primordial rawness of a truly African environment, the lodge interiors reflect the signature style of Singita. Interior design by Cécile & Boyd’s displays immaculate attention to detail with African elegance. Six luxurious suites and a magnificent five bedroomed villa vividly reflect the tribal history of the local Shangaan people.
Guests may fill their days and evenings with rewarding game drives, game fishing, sunset boat cruises, guided bush walks, canoe trips and tennis games. Alternatively guests can unwind at the swimming pools and immerse themselves in the African bush surroundings of this safari lodge. The main lodge has indoor and open-air dining rooms, three lounges and an impressively stocked wine cellar, and lodge facilities include a bush spa and gym, as well as two communal, heated swimming pools with a Jacuzzi.
Surrounded by pristine wilderness teeming with wildlife and ancient San rock art, it has a large population of black rhino. True to the Singita ethos, all profits generated here are invested in community, wildlife and conservation projects, earning it the title Global Winner, Conservation Category in the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Tourism for Tomorrow Awards 2011. Singita Pamushana is accessible via a convenient two hour flight direct from Johannesburg, South Africa.
