Singita Pamushana Lodge is a place of sublime beauty and the game reserve in which it sits boasts a stunning diversity of flora and fauna. Sitting on top of a hill overlooking a reservoir and, beyond it, the vast expanse that is Africa, the location of the accommodation and restaurant is spectacular. The accommodation is superb and every single member of Jason's team work diligently to provide a level of customer service of the highest quality. The food is, thoughtfully prepared and delicious, whether it's breakfast, lunch, High Tea or dinner. The wine cellar is excellent and each evening we were offered different varieties to try from some of South Africa's finest vineyards.Of course, the real reason to visit somewhere like this is to experience Africa and it's astonishing ecosystem. Our guides Fortune and Tengwe (such was the size of our party that we had two) displayed a fantastic knowledge, together with charm, humour and a willingness to do everything they possibly could to make our experience unforgettable. We were lucky enough to register sightings of all of the Big Five, plus much more. We even spotted a Leopard through the telescope in the villa, relaxing by the reservoir.This place is a gem. I hope I will be lucky enough to be able to visit it again one day.

If you are looking for a trip of a lifetime, you must go to Africa. I have technically been to Southern Africa twice, once to Zambia and once to Zimbabwe. I recommend Zimbabwe simply because it has cats in its parks and Zambia does not. And there is nothing cooler than being 10 feet from a lion We stayed at the Pamushana Lodge for 4 nights. First class service, first class lodge, all-inclusive, amazing food... you can't go wrong. Our daily guides were phenomenal and knew the answer to every question we asked (we tried multiple times to stump them.) One thing to note, you probably only need about 4-5 days here because really all there is to do is go on a safari. But believe me, these don't get boring (you go twice a day). You will see new animals every time you go out!Our highlights were seeing several lions, seeing a cheetah with her baby cubs (and meeting the Discovery Channel photographer who was there following them), being charged by an elephant, having a herd of elephants cross our paths (5 feet away!), experiencing the real wild by coming across a bunch of hyenas feasting on a giraffe... the list could go on! We happened to be there during New Years too and the lodge put on a fantastic feast with local entertainment, which really made us feel a part of the culture.I would 100% recommend visiting the Pamushana Lodge. I hope to go back here someday when I have children because I feel like this is a such a cool experience for people of all ages!

I was fortunate to visit Pamushana Lodge with 5 friends for 4 nights in late September 2014. We were very lucky to have Mark as our guide and within 2 days spotted the Big 5! I have to say the most memorable was the sunset cruises on the river, drinking spirits and observing the wildlife on the banks. We saw a rare Black Rhino there and many Hippos and Crocks and beautiful birds. The service and attention from the staff at the Lodge was magical. Attention to detail was impressive. It was hot enough for us to enjoy the main pool and our our private pools as well. We all had a great experience at Singita Pamushana Lodge.

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
