The redesigned Singita Malilangwe House, perched on a rocky outcrop within the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve in southeast Zimbabwe, has now reopened. Available as sole-use, the five-bedroom villa offers spectacular views of the dam below from its raised oversized decks that provide the ultimate in outdoor living.
Transforming the former master bedroom into a double-volume space, the redesign also includes the addition of a large automated panel of frameless glass, which drops away for an indoor/outdoor shower experience with unsurpassed views.
An expansive rim-flow pool on the main deck is positioned on the extreme edge of the villa’s cliffside setting – maximising views and creating a visual connection with Malilangwe Dam. Each of the five luxurious suites also features its own private deck.
This tranquil home was designed to provide families or small groups the relaxed freedom to create days on safari any way they wish, with a dedicated chef, butler and private game vehicle as well as an experienced Field Guide catering to their every need.
The private 52,600-acre Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve is conserved by Singita’s non-profit partner, The Malilangwe Trust. Bordering Gonarezhou National Park, it boasts an exciting diversity of wildlife. Home to one of the highest concentrations of endangered black rhino in Zimbabwe, as well as healthy populations of elephant, cheetah, wild dog, lion and leopard and abundant birdlife, the reserve is a game-viewing paradise.
More than a traditional safari, guests can immerse themselves in wellness experiences and fill days with fishing, sundowner cruises on Malilangwe Dam, in-room yoga and massages, stargazing, wine tasting, community visits, bush walks and visits to ancient rock-art sites.
This exclusive-use retreat forms part of Singita’s Private Villa Collection, a series of seven extraordinary lodges designed for privacy and flexibility for families and groups to connect in iconic wildlife locations. Itineraries, activities and meals are tailored as guests set the rhythm of their safari vacation according to their interests.
Rates for Malilangwe House start from US$11,670 per villa per night, accommodating up to ten guests.
