Singita has a firm commitment to the sustainability of each property by continuing to build upon three core pillars: wildlife conservation, eco-friendly tourism, and community support.
History & Story
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. Pamushana opened under Malilangwe management in 1998 and joined the Singita group in 2008.

Main Strengths, Special Touch
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 all proceeds from the lodge benefit the numerous conservation and community outreach and development programmes underway.
Malilangwe remains virtually untouched by humankind. The area is home to hundreds of baobab trees and an unrivalled gathering of birds with more than 500 species, including many raptors. Here you will find Singita Pamushana Lodge, one of Africa’s most exclusive, remote hideaways.
