Our guide, George was the best guide we ever had. The whole bush mobile team was amazing. The food was outstanding. The favorite lodge was the luangwa river camp. We fell in... 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

Fantastic service from very knowledgeable and friendly (mostly local) staff. I truly magical experience with daily safaris either on foot or by jeep. The food was truly excellent and the staff always seemed to have surprizes up their sleeves . We could not have been better cared for or more expertly guided. A wonderful and very different experience.

Please try the camping/walking safari, this was a great experience and you are waited on and looked after just as well as if you are... More
