Pamushana Lodge is built under a canopy of trees and surrounded by leafy gardens, allowing it to blend naturally into its mountainous surroundings. The organic shaped buildings of Pamushana are reminiscent of the Great Zimbabwe stone city, built through the Iron Age over six hundred years ago. Thick walls, meticulous thatching and incredibly detailed stonework lay the foundation for bold interiors that are in marked contrast to the surrounding landscape.
The communal areas of Pamushana Lodge are staggered on different levels and interlinked by platforms, consisting of an indoor dining room, a teak deck dining area, a bar, a library, an open-air lounge, a wine cellar, two heated pools, and a jacuzzi all overlooking Mililangwe Dam and the nearby sandstone hills. Meals are served either in the outdoor dining room, on the teak deck outside, or in the bush. Expansive decks deepen your connection with the landscape and a cliff-top fire pit and bar-deli overlooking the dam provides the perfect setting for alfresco dining and fireside storytelling.
The lodge consists of six luxury suites and one villa which sleeps up to 10 people, all with views of Lake Malilangwe. The cosy and spacious suites all have en-suite bathrooms with panoramic views over the lake and indoor and outdoor showers. The rooms also have their own private plunge pools and game viewing decks. Rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with bathrobes, slippers and hairdryers.
The villa offers panoramic views over the lake and Malilangwe Dam, and has its own kitchen, dining room, living room, nanny flat, private infinity plunge pool and a game viewing deck.
Pamushana Lodge is set in Zimbabwe’s remote southeast, within the 130,000-acre Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, home to a variety of wildlife, including rare and endangered species such as roan, sable antelope and black rhino. The landscape of the area is made up of mopane forests and baobab trees, with the Chiredzi River to the west and the Runde River to the southwest, near to Gonarezhou National Park. Guests have exclusive access to this untouched wilderness and can immerse themselves in nature on twice-daily game drives, bush walks, sundowner boat cruises, fishing and excursions to rock art sites.
Pamushana is owned by The Malilangwe Trust, a non-profit Zimbabwean organisation set up to conserve the wildlife and habitats of the region and develop the neighbouring communities. It’s notable for running some very impressive community and wildlife-support programs in this area and you are able to visit the local village which they support.
Pamushana has a bush spa and yoga room which offers a range of massages, as well as feet and hand treatments. The lodge also has two tennis courts and there is a golf course nearby. The lodge is equipped with high speed wireless internet, satellite tv, fax machines, and telephones.
