Luangwa River Camp is a beautiful location for a safari camp. The South Luangwa park has an overabundance of predators and prey and the camp caters carefully to the needs of all of its guests. Game drives begin as soon as you climb in the Land Cruiser, with great photo-ops within sight of camp. The chalets are large and well... More

Situated across the river from the National Park, even the crossing of the almost dry river bed is an exciting way to start your game drives. The camp is very attractive and the food and guiding exceptional. These are the elements that we believe Robin Pope Safaris concentrate on. The accommodation is satisfactory but is rustic and may be due... More

We have the pleasure of visiting South Luangwa, on a regular basis and I recently was lucky enough to accompany some of our International Agents to Luangwa River Camp!! The place is class, with special mention to the really good meals, personal touch and incredible guiding. The chalets are really impressive and comfortable, and the pool and bar are so... More

All aspects of LRC are top drawer. The accommodations were marvelous with bathing facilities in the chalets the size of small apartments. The rest of the chalet was lovely as well. The lodge was warm and inviting with a complete bar. The meals were wonderful even if too large. The staff is what made everything so good. The guides were... More

Flight from Lusaka to Mfuwe and wellcome from Robin Pope Safari team. A driver carried me until the South Luangwa n. p. boundaries where a land cruiser waited for me. The driver was Sebastian who will be my guide on the next 4 days. At the Luangwa river bank, a motor boat was there waiting for us to cross the... More

The rooms are spacious with large comfortable beds and over sized bathrooms. Staff are very well trained, extremely friendly and eager to... More

This was the first snd my favourite of the 3 RPS lodges I stayed at (the others were Nsefu and Pulumani in Malawi). The atmosphere was lovely throughout, friendly, welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for Polly and the other staff and we were immediately made to feel part of a small family. The lodge is a 50 minute drive... More

The Luangwa River Camp was the first of three Robin Pope Safari camps I recently stayed at during the end of the "emerald season." The location is great, crossing the River was fun, the "chalet" is very spacious and the food and service were very good. Maintenance is needed on the outside of the chalet I stayed in as well...

This was our first camp during our two week safari adventure through Zambia and Botswana. Polly and her entire staff made it tough for other camps to compete, they made our entire stay very memorable. Our guides could not have been more helpful and were very knowledgeable. The staff was there when you needed them and always offered suggestions to... More
