I fell in love with Pamushana when i spent a week drawing baobab trees, but had the most amazing sightings of all the Big 5 plus cheetah and wild dog. Singita's super lux Pamushana is the only camp on a vast private reserve, which has been a great conservation success. Spend at least 4 nights. It borders Gonarezhou where other camps have opened, but wildlife there is skittish. Zimbabwe.
Best time: Milder and drier March to September, can be very hot October to February.
Access: Singita run a regular jet from Johannesburg (1 hr) and Vic Falls (1 hr).
