Experience luxury in Zimbabwe at Pamushana Lodge
Zimbabwe is rich in natural beauty and it serves as the home of several of the most pristine tracts of wilderness in Africa. Singita, dedicated to sharing the ecological wonders of Africa with the rest of world, has created the Pamushana Lodge in the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, in the southeastern corner of Zimbabwe, near the border with Mozambique. In 1994 the Malilangwe Trust was created to protect and promote this amazing natural reserve, and today you are welcome to journey over savannah and jungle to the Hunyugwe Hills, where luxurious accommodations await you.
Grandeur in the Wild
Zimbabwe was the home to the Shona people, who created one of the great African civilizations in their valleys and plateaus. At Pamushana Lodge, you can enjoy the feel of Zimbabwean architecture as you relax in your extensive suite. The Lodge is decorated with Zimbabwean motifs, featuring thatching and stonework, which faithfully reflect the surrounding culture and landscape. During your stay at the Lodge you will be near a lake, which will give you an unique opportunity to hear the wildlife at both dusk and dawn. Pamushana Lodge offers Jacuzzi and swimming pools, and the staff is professional and well-prepared to provide a true luxury experience. Day trips can take you into the Shangaan communities, where you can study the intense effort to bring people and wilderness together in a true ecological collaboration.
The Great Beasts of Africa
What else can capture the imagination better than the animals of Africa? At the Pamushana Lodge, daily game drives are a featured recreation, and you can be assured of excitement and awe when you head out into the grasslands. Great herds of hartebeest and sable abound, and the local cheetahs tend to be the dominant predators. Your guides can also provide Safari Walks, which can bring you into close contact with some of the oldest art known to humanity – the great rock paintings of Southern Zimbabwe. Created by the San Bushmen as much as ten thousand years ago, these paintings will provoke wonder at the endurance of humanity in the wilderness. At the end of the day, you can return to the comfort of the Lodge and enjoy some of the region’s excellent wines with your dinner, a part of the new wave of viticulture sweeping through Africa.
Commitment to Preservation
While you enjoy the safari experience at Pamushana Lodge, you can join in the ongoing study of ecology at an on-site research department. The Malilangwe Nature Reserve operates a Malilangwe Trust, created in 1994 and dedicated to the promotion of endangered species such as the black rhino. The Trust operates a Neighborhood Outreach Programme, featuring the establishment of the Kambako Living Museum, a Conservation Outreach Centre, and a bee-keeping programme, all aimed at assisting local villages and integrating ecological concerns with local economies.
A Relaxing Holiday in the Wilderness
The Pamushana Lodge is ready to let you try something new, as well as enjoy the older pleasures of safari. You can enjoy spa treatments after a day of riding through the bush, or sip extraordinary wines after a day of travel through Shangaan villages. Visit the Pamushana Lodge soon if you wish to embrace Zimbabwe and have an amazing holiday.
