Enjoy Zimbabwe's many wonders on a slow safari at Singita Pamushana

Time in the bush moves at a different pace and when you ease into the rhythms of the wilderness, days seem longer, life finally feels unhurried, and every moment spent with loved ones becomes more meaningful. 

Nowhere is this truer than at Singita Pamushana – our property in the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve in Zimbabwe. This magnificent and vast piece of wilderness, accessible only to Singita’s guests, is a truly untouched piece of Africa. It offers everything you could hope for in a safari – from spectacular scenery and unparalleled game viewing to the warmth of the people and a plethora of ways to immerse yourself in local culture.  

Featuring Singita Pamushana Lodge and an exclusive-use villa, Malilangwe House, it’s the ideal destination for an extended family holiday, and the vast range of activities and experiences offered ensure that your days and nights will be filled with adventure and relaxation alike.  

Singita Pamushana's remote and varied landscape opens up a world of safari activities for all ages

A varied & wondrous landscape 

Set in a remote location, with an awe-inspiring vantage point of the shimmering Malilangwe Dam below, Singita Pamushana serves as a welcoming and luxurious base from which to explore the wonders of Zimbawe’s pristine southeast.

Offering an array of activities for multigenerational groups, our lodge and villa maximise opportunities for families to spend time in nature together. A Pamushana safari is both restful and inspiring – with comfortable, easygoing and intuitive service and a sense of space and freedom underpinning every stay.

From bush walks, game drives and rock art excursions, to fishing, boating and superb meals enjoyed outdoors, every element of your stay is designed to celebrate the region’s natural riches – while fostering deep connections and forming lifelong memories. With so much to do, as well as the opportunity for real relaxation, extended stays allow you to make the most of the experience. 

From excursions to ancient rock art sites, to fishing on the Malilangwe Dam, Singita Pamushana offers numerous ways to engage with the landscape and history of this region

Private & personal travel 

For families set on a leisurely sojourn, and wanting the privacy of their own space and the freedom to craft their days during their stay, Malilangwe House is the ideal location. An impressive but welcoming home featuring every conceivable comfort and championing the beauty, dynamism and energy of African design, it serves as a peaceful and luxurious space to spend time with loved ones at your own pace. 

With its dramatic clifftop location overlooking the Malilangwe Dam, this private villa balances the best of our award-winning service with the ease and seclusion of an exclusive-use space. Having a deciated staff complement to tailor your days according to your liking further emphasizes the personalized appeal of having your own home in the bush.

Engaging guests of all ages 

Singita’s comprehensive range of activities will keep younger guests entertained and captivated for days, and beyond the many lodge activities – from cooking classes and board games to movies, arts and crafts, and swimming – a wide array of experiences await. Beyond the borders of the lodge and villa, our Field Guides keep children engaged, while teaching them about the beauty of the wilderness on bush walks, boating trips and fishing excursions, and learning about Zimbabwe’s natural and archeological heritage on nursery and rock art tours.  

Both the lodge and villa also offer babysitting services for those times when parents would like to enjoy a peaceful meal, experience one of our exceptional wine tastings, or simply sit back for a quiet sunset together.  

To further promote their environmental education, and inspire a lifelong love of nature, and a desire to protect it, Singita’s specially created Mini Rangers’ Course is designed for young conservationists, and opens up a world of wonder through activities like tracking wildlife; a cosmic safari (astronomy that makes the most of the unpolluted night sky here); bush survival techniques; game-, tree-, and bird-spotting; as well as nature quizzes.
