The Singita Pamushana Lodge is the ecotourism arm of the reserve, and one of the most magical secrets on the African continent.
The setting is magnificent, with the lodge built amongst forests of Mopane and Baobab trees and overlooking the serene lake formed by the Malilangwe dam. There are six luxury suites and one five-bedroom villa, each with a private pool and extraordinary views.
Teeming with birds and wildlife, The Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve holds one of the highest concentrations of black rhino in Africa, fourteen different species of eagle, and endangered species such as the roan and sable antelope.
The magnificence of the landscape and the abundance of wildlife can be appreciated from the comfort of the lodge, or head out on a game drive, safari walk, sundowner cruise or mountain bike ride. Unlike other camps that follow a strict routine, how you plan your day is completely up to you.
If you tire of the views and the wildlife then play tennis on one of the lodge’s two tennis courts, set out on a fishing trip, head to the gym, relax in the spa, visit the 2 millenia old San rock paintings, or experience some local Shangaan culture.
But leave time to enjoy the exquisite food and wines. Pamushana Lodge is one of the continent’s most influential collectors of wines, with a cellar stocked with some of Africa’s most sought after reserves.
Everything is impeccable at Pamushana, but it is possibly its passion and its people that set this lodge above others of its kind. The level of service is exceptional. Your every whim is met, often before you’ve even had a chance to articulate it. And the passion for conserving this special place and developing the local villages gives this magical spot a special heart. Link to Pamushana ibrochure.
