    Kambako is the local Shangaan word for ‘Old Bull Elephant’. The Kambako Cultural Museum is an initiative of the local Shangaan families where visitors can walk through handbuilt working villages to learn about their rich heritage and bushcraft skills. “Kambako is like a wise, old man who is taking us in the right direction,” says Julius Matshuve, founder. “The older generation who know the old ways will soon be gone and the aim of the Living Museum is to teach their knowledge…”

    Save the Black Rhino

    At Pamushana visitors can track both species of remaining African Rhino: In addition to White Rhino, you can see Black Rhino – one of the most difficult-to-find species in Africa with very few individuals remaining in the wild. Since 1998, the Black Rhino rehabilitation program at Malilangwe has been most successful in establishing stronger rhino populations within a safe habitat. In June of 2015, 10 rhino were also relocated from this group to Botswana in protected habitats.

    Child Feeding Program

    Your visit here supports the not-for-profit Malilangwe Wildlife Trust: In addition to the care of the wilderness, the Pamushana model also feeds 19,000 children in Zimbabwe every single day and offers core community development with educational and longterm vocational undertakings. Further empowerment for the impoverished communities also ensures health care and irrigation schemes for agriculture, to grow food and offer provision for boreholes.

    Special activities

    Mountain biking through the reserve with your guide offers an upclose and personal interaction with the natural environment. Fun activities to be enjoyed by those priviledged to take off more than a handful of nights, include Tennis (2 tennis courts: clay and Rebound Ace), morning Archery lessons, and for golfers – a 45-minute excursion to nearby lush 9-hole courses. Unbelievable Stargazing in endlessly-deep, light-pollution free skies with astronomy guides is also offered.

    Archaeology & hiking

    In addition to learning about the Shangaan community: Walk in the footsteps of the San Bushman, one of the oldest cultures on earth – the original hunter-gatherers, and explore ancient rock art, tens of thousands of years old.
