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 south eastern 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 all proceeds from the lodge benefit the numerous conservation and community outreach and development programmes underway. 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. 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.
Singita, ‘place of miracles’ is inspired by a philosophy of keeping life in balance. Their passion is founded upon three fundamental pillars: preserving iconic spaces, protecting the wildlife that inhabits those spaces, and collaborating with neighbouring communities. Their endeavour is to preserve and protect the wildlife that exists in each unique region.
