SINGITA PAMUSHANA


Exclusive and remote hideaway

Sitting in untouched remoteness overlooking a lake in the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, the reserve borders the Gonarezhou National Park in southern Zimbabwe. Here is one of Africa’s most exclusive and remote hideaways, and winner of the 2015 World Travel Awards for Zimbabwe’s Leading Safari Lodge. Pristine land hosts 38 different habitat and ecological zones. Virtually untouched, the reserve has one of the highest concentrations of black rhino in Africa, together with the ‘Big Five’. Inspired by tradition, the lodge, offering just six suites and one villa, uses wooden and stone architecture, together with strong and vibrant colours for the interiors. It has been designed and built with the ancient culture of the local Shangaan people in mind, and the lodge works closely with and strongly supports the local community. The activities range from morning, afternoon and night game drives, walking safaris to visit the ancient rock art, community visits, mountain-biking and sunset cruises on the lake to enjoy the traditional African ‘sundowner’ while watching the wildlife. The lodge is actively involved in The Child Supplementary Programme, where each morning on the outskirts of Singita Pamushana, 19,000 young children receive a fortified meal of corn-soya porridge, which provides them with a nourishing meal to sustain them for their day ahead at school.
