On a high rocky ridge overlooking the dazzling Malilangwe Dam, Pamushana Lodge provides an oasis of luxury in the heart of the African wilderness. Shimmering infinity pools, plush furniture and an indulgent spa are surrounded by a dramatic landscape of rolling plains, lush greenery and abundant wildlife – this is safari-style like you’ve never seen it before.
A variety of 8 luxury suites, each with a private plunge pool, as well as a 5-bed villa with infinity pool
Twice-daily game drives with your experienced guide, including a nocturnal safari experience

Located in the vast Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve
Crafted from natural materials echoing the surrounding environment, the stone walls and thatched rooves of the spacious suites blend seamlessly with their backdrop. The intricate textiles and geometric patterns draw on the rich tribal history of the area. Exposed wood, earthy tones and sumptuous beds create a cosy atmosphere in each suite while, outside, glistening pools with infinite views provide a cool relief from the heat of the day. The lodge’s villa sets a new benchmark for luxury safari; with five bedrooms, a personal guide, private chef and large infinity pool, this palatial home provides the ultimate retreat from which to relax, entertain and explore.
In the park’s lush and diverse landscape, you will encounter a vast array of wildlife; prowling lions, herds of buffalo and families of elephants are just a fraction of the countless species awaiting in the bush. Lose yourself in an afternoon of utter tranquillity as you cast your line out on the dam, floating on peaceful waters teeming with Tiger Fish, Bass, Bream and Catfish. After a day of activities, bask in the golden light of sunset and cruise across the water, sipping a refreshing cocktail and watching in wonder as the animals flock to the shore to drink. Wide wooden decking offers the perfect location for alfresco dining, with sweeping views across the Malilangwe Dam and sandstone cliffs beyond. In the cool of the evenings, relax around the cliff-top fire pit, chatting, star gazing and reflecting on your day of adventure.
