LOCATION

Singita Pamushana Lodge is located in the extreme south-east of Zimbabwe, in the Malilangwe Nature Reserve, next to Gonarezhou National Park. This exceptional hotel promotes ecotourism and is part of a huge project to protect the local flora and fauna.

Preserved from mass tourism, the Gonarezhou National Park enjoys an exceptional location on the border of the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Limpopo in Mozambique. Together, these three parks form the ‘Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park’.

Gonarezhou covers nearly 130,000 acres and is home to rare animal species such as black rhinos and cheetahs.

Pamushana can be reached with 2 weekly flights operated from Johannesburg to Buffalo Range Airport, which is only a 30-minute drive from the reserve.

The lodge’s eight luxury suites and a five-bedroom villa, nestled in the shade of vegetation, are located on a rocky promontory and offer panoramic views of a majestic lake.

The beauty of nature, the wide open spaces, the silence, the colours, the smells, the sky and its immensity …

A beautiful main building houses the lobby and reception, but also a large infinity pool, a jacuzzi overlooking the Malilangwe dam, a large terrace, a lounge area, a restaurant and a wine cellar. Bewitching ethnic motifs mingle with the earthy soft hues of the location.

FOR THE FAMILY

The activities at Singita Pamushana Lodge are specifically tailored to the interests and desires of each family. A safari can open a child’s eyes to the beauty of the natural world. Your children will keep their memories long, long after their stay.

Tennis, table tennis, trampoline, board games, DVDs, puzzles … everything is set up to entertain children!

Special activities for children include walking in the savannah around the camp, fishing, swimming, tennis, trampoline and stargazing.

EXPERIENCES

Safaris organized by the hotel are supervised by professionals, with rangers and game trackers. You will be able to get close to a lot of animals, including lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards and the protected black rhinos. Nearly 400 bird species can be observed in the reserve. What a way to amaze your children!

Night safaris are also organized, under the starry sky, aboard fully secured Land Cruisers. Special lighting reveals the nightlife of the most elusive animal species.

Other activities include sunset cruises to admire the area, game fishing on Lake Malilangwe, astronomy classes, morning archery and archeological tours to explore the area.

An activity not to be missed is a visit of the Kambako Living History Museum, located on the border of the Malilangwe reserve. This tour allows you to walk in traditional villages to discover the way of life and culture of Zimbabwe. There you will meet the Shangaan people, a tribe of ancient hunter-gatherers who will teach you how to make fire using the technique of friction, making bows, spears and many other instruments. A unique moment to share with family. The $20 entrance fee will be entirely donated to local families.

 

FOR THE PARENTS

In search of relaxation? Enjoy the Bush Spa during your stay in Pamushana. Highly qualified staff offer a selection of treatments to restore your body’s natural balance and ease tension. Body treatments such as massages, scrubs and nourishing masks can be done in the comfort of your villa, on your terrace or in the spa. We personally advise Mom to test the African Head Massage (45 min): a traditional African massage of the head, neck and shoulders, combined with a hair care. Relaxation guaranteed!
