We just returned from 4 days at Luangwa River Camp. Our family had a wonderful holiday thanks to the superb staff and setting of the camp. Chris, our game guide, was so much fun and his incredible knowledge of the game and the area were indispensable. Our chalet was large and very comfortable. We loved watching the elephants and baboons... More

In early May, my husband and I visited Luangwa River Camp. Our first visit to Zambia. What a great experience. The game viewing was extraordinary (more plains animals than we have seen before, and a lot of lions & leopards, hippos, buffalos and elephants). Our guide (Chilumba) was excellent. The Manager, Chef, and the Staff treated us like royalty. We... More

I just returned from spending three nights at the Luangwa River Camp. The staff were very helpful and polite, the food was excellent and the guides were very knowledgeable. I've gotten spoiled with Robin Pope Safaris in that I've been able to have game drives with just me and the guide -- this was because I was there at the... More

We arrived here from Nkwali as part of a 2 week safari. Our guide - Daodi - was a knowledgeable and friendly person to be with. The food was brilliant - a very high standard is maintained. We had a great time and were sorry to leave. The room was lovely and spacious with a bath almost big enough to... More

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!!
