Singita Pamushana Lodge in Zimbabwe’s Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve has closed for refurbishment and will reopen in May.

The lodge is set amongst towering trees overlooking a lake in the remote reaches of the reserve bordering the Gonarezhou National Park.

Janalyn Theodosiou, Head of Public Relations for Singita told Tourism Update that the lodge would be expanded and that work would also be done on the interiors, which will reflect the local Shangaan culture mixed with contemporary forms and styles. 

“The architecture is a signature of the lodge, and will be further amplified during the transformation, with main lodge decks and living spaces extended to maximise connection to the natural beauty of surrounding rocky outcrops, the dam and wildlife,” said Theodosiou.

Two, two-bedroom suites will be added, bringing total offering to eight suites and the private-use, five-bedroom villa.
