Malilangwe Reserve, Zimbabwe

Singita Pamushana Lodge is currently closed while it undergoes a transformation – reopening mid May 2018.

In 1994, the not-for-profit Malilangwe Trust was established as a result of the largest ever single donor investment in Zimbabwe, in order to purchase, protect, and manage the extraordinary wilderness area next to the Gonarezhou National Park in southeastern Zimbabwe.

Singita Pamushana Lodge is the ecotourism arm of this 130,000 acre reserve, and its role is to help foster the sustainability of the wildlife and broader ecology, while enabling guests to share the magic of the lodge and the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve.

Singita manages the lodge on behalf of the Trust and revenue from the lodge helps to sustain the conservation and community work in the area, allowing each guest who visits Singita Pamushana to make a positive impact on this incredibly beautiful land and the people who live here.⠀

This Zimbabwean based and managed Trust was set up to develop a blueprint for creating harmony between conservation initiatives and community development in villages that neighbour wildlife areas.

The initiatives in place in the area have met with great success and each guest who visits Singita Pamushana makes a positive impact to this incredibly beautiful land and dynamic community.

BOOK NOW

Singita operates 12 lodges and camps in 5 wilderness regions across 3 African countries (South Africa, Zimbabwe and Tanzania).
Singita’s enduring purpose is to conserve, preserve, and protect the miraculous places of which they are custodians. Singita’s concessions, reserves, and properties represent some of the most pristine wilderness areas on the continent and they are dedicated to maintaining these incredible pieces of earth for future generations.
Singita properties are the most exclusive lodges in all of South Africa. Celebrities from all over the world come to these properties–everyone from Elton John, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, to Justin Bieber.
Africa changes you forever, and to go on safari is to experience the greatest outdoor adventure holiday of them all. To live for a while in the sun and the wind, looking for lions on the boundless savannahs or watching the spectacle of the wildebeest migration is all you need for the lure of the wild to take hold.
Discerning travellers yet to go on a safari holiday should know it is possible to do so without sacrificing an ounce of comfort, staying in luxury safari camps and lodges whose facilities are the equal of any world-class city hotel, and whose romantic locations are second to none.
Even though these properties offer modern conveniences, such as spa and gym facilities, the surrounding environment is what makes these accommodations so unique. You’ll be closer to the action — so close that at times you’ll have to be escorted through the bush to your suite.
Sustainability
Unlike most safari operators, Singita is unique in taking full responsibility for the conservation of the land it operates on, ensuring eco-tourism and eco-systems work hand-in-hand.
Each property hosts researchers – often PhD students – working on issues that will have a direct impact on the region’s conservation work. In Singita Sabi Sand that could be the reintroduction of reed-buck or trends in the extensive leopard population. At the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve it may be the ongoing work to boost populations of the endangered roan antelope.
While managing and restoring the land is key, ensuring the lodges touch the earth lightly is equally important. At each property the footprint of the lodge is kept to a minimum, with everything from waste disposal to power generation constantly assessed for ways to reduce any adverse impact on the environment.
Planning a safari trip can be a daunting task.
ZEKKEI offers a wide range of luxury African safari options. We want to help you ensure that your experience is unforgettable. Choose from one of our luxury lodges at well-known rest camps. We specialize in lavish and indulgent getaways and provide once-in-a-lifetime fully guided safaris.
