Our vacation was organized by Robin Pope Safari and we stayed for four nights at Nkwali Lodge. We wanted to go to another lodge for two additional nights and they arranged our stay at the lodge of another company as well! They could not have been more accommodating including being met before our flight from Malawi and again on our... More

Great stay at Nkwali Camp, bordering the South Luangwa National Park. We stayed 3 days at this camp and was recommended to stay here and see the African Pita. because of too little rain still, the Pita was not seen. However, numerous sightings of leopards and lion, and a variety of beautiful birds sightings made up for not seeing the... More

Our first trip to Africa couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed with Robin Pope Safaris in Nkwali and Nsefu and it was simply amazing. The staff were fantastic and the guides were truly amazing!! Jacob was our guide at Nkwali and he was simply amazing. Kiki runs a fantastic camp!!

If you only do 1 safari make sure you do it with Robin Pope. We have had several safaris with other companies before in Africa but our recent one with Robin Pope in South Luangwa Zambia was simply everything you could want from a safari. We booked through Audley Travel in UK - who we would also very highly recommend... More

Superb experience in every respect. The five-night mobile safari was extraordinary. Our guide, George Ball, and his mobile team, Sarah, Joffrey, Mike, Alfred, are the best of the best. Nkwali & Nsefu are exceptionally well managed fixed camps. Our guide at Nsefu, Chilumba, is an extraordinary young man, articulate, poised, professional with strong leadership potential to manage an RPS camp... More

I recently took the mobile waking safari and stayed at Nsefu camp for two night. The guiding, food and service from the staff was excellent. The waking safari was a fabulous way to see wild game in the most natural setting up close but not upset by our presence due to the skill and concern of the scout and guide... More

Robin Pope Safaris offers the best and most authentic experience of Africa you could hope to find. The accommodation is authentic, perfectly in keeping with its natural surroundings and beautifully decorated with local touches and carefully chosen fabrics and colours. The food is exceptional and it is hard to believe the level which is produced in such remote locations. We... More

We visited RPS in late July early August in 2015 and after landing at Lusaka Airport we were met and looked after splendidly whilst being guided through immigration and onto the connecting flight to Mfuwe Airport. RPS staff at Mfuwe collected us and our baggage for the trip to Luangwa House on the Safari vehicles. We stayed at two other... More

Without the sounds of an engine, and with more time to contemplate surroundings, a walking safari will expand your understanding of the park's environment and the animals living within it. During our 3 nights in the park, our knowledgeable and friendly guide, Kanga, not only lead us to see more game than we expected but he also taught us about... More
