We spent a week in the South Luangwa in different Robin Pope camps - Nkwali, Nsefu and best of all a five day mobile walking safari. The camps are all comfortable and very well run. We particularly appreciated the way that the camps are co-ordinated so that the transfers were seamless ( even down to our laundry being moved from... More

I have to say for the first time on Safari this is amazing. The staff were excellent, always friendly and brilliant game trackers. The statement 'you run out of superlatives' doesn't fit the bill as there are no words to describe the experience you will have with Robin Pope. DO THE BUSH CAMPING as the guide Braston and tracker Chris... More

I have to say that from start to finish our 10day (three locations) trip was so well organised by the Robin Pope team. Special mention to Sakhile who helped me with all the bookings, flights included. Nothing was too much trouble and her responses prompt an relevant. There is a consistency in the service and quality you receive from all... More

The opportunity for viewing some big game like elephants and hippos is very good, the safari vehicles are open which is my favorite. The guide I worked with was Thomas and he's incredibly nice. Overall a very nice place

We had a great stay at Robin's House, Nkwali Camp. The house has everything you need. The staff were very attentive yet unobtrusive. Our young girls loved their stay, they had even created activity books for the children. Every need was catered for, including my daughter's wheat allergy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a complete break, a... More

Every aspect of Pope's service was excellent- from booking- to game viewing - to meeting our food and other preferences at the camps. It was on a par with the best we have experienced elsewhere. The Zambian managers, tour guides and support staff were superb: they were very knowledgeable (on birds; the environment as well as animals), wonderfully enthusiastic and... More

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
