This ultra-deluxe lodge is one of Africa’s best-kept secrets due to its remote location in the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, which is known for its rocky outcrops, majestic baobob trees and the Malilangwe Lake. Pamushana offers just six luxury suites and one villa, each with outdoor shower, private plunge pool, and game-viewing deck (complete with a Swarovski spotting scope), all in an architectural style that blends seamlessly into the landscape.
The expansive villa is ideal for a family, with five bedrooms, living room, kitchen, nanny quarters and a private infinity plunge pool. The main lodge offers an indoor dining room, teak deck dining room, bar, library, open-air lounge, wine cellar, two heated swimming pools and a jacuzzi, all overlooking the Malilangwe dam and sandstone hills. The area is dense with bird- and wildlife, including rare and endangered species such as the roan, sable antelope and black rhino.
