We have just had the holiday of a lifetime at two of Robin Pope's Lodges in the South Luangwa National Park. We started at Nkwali camp with brilliant guides and fantastic accommodation. We were met from Mfuwe airport and had a magical drive as the sun set to the Lodge, Food was excellent, accommodation could not be faulted and for the next four days the camp staff seemed to anticipate our every need. The 5.30am breakfasts were a shock, but well worth it for the early game drives before the full heat of the day. We had some amazing game drives with unbelievably knowledgeable local guides. By 10.30am to 11.00 we were back in camp for a very tasty lunch at about 11.30. Then a welcome siesta with a chance to see all sorts of game, vervet monkeys, baboon, mongooses, Puku antelope Water Buck and much more that just roams around the camp grounds. Just magical. Our next lodge at Nsefu was going to have to be great to top this. But it almost managed it! Again a wonderful setting on the Luangwa River, fantastic accommodation and superb local guides.
Here we did a couple of walking safaris as well as more game drives and again they were wonderful. And at both camps they kept delighting us with wonderful surprizes. We won't spoil it for others but believe me just as you think it couldn't get any better, it did.
It was just an unforgettable experience, being cossetted and spoilt as the experiences just kept coming. Just magical. Thanks to all concerned.
