The Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve is set on 130,000 acres of wilderness in the southeastern corner of Zimbabwe, bordering the Gonarezhou National Park. Malilangwe remains virtually untouched by humankind and occupies a key position in an area that is potentially one of Africa’s largest bio-refuges. The area is home to hundreds of baobab trees and an unrivalled assortment of birds with more than 500 species, including many raptors. This is where you will find Singita Pamushana Lodge, one of Africa’s most exclusive, remote hideaways.

This exclusive-use African home takes its cue from the rich tribal culture of the local Shangaan people, who have lived in the region for thousands of years. Beyond the villa, hundreds of baobab trees punctuate the untouched wilderness of ridges, outcrops, ironwood and Mountain Acacia woodlands, which are home to a great variety of rare and abundant wildlife, as well as hundreds of bird species and ancient rock paintings.

Southern Africa is a year-round destination. Traditionally the dry winter months (April to October) are best for game viewing, due to the shorter grass, lack of foliage and the absence of water which forces the game to concentrate around the remaining sources of drinking water.
