Robin Pope Mobile Safaris

Known as ‘the best wilderness experience of the South Luangwa’, a walking safari with the Robin Pope team is quite simply unforgettable. For five days, an intimate group of no more than six guests will cover up to 10km per day, following the clear Mupamadzi River as it winds its way to the Luangwa.

Zambia

Highlights

Adventuring deep into the bush, away from roads and human life, is a great experience. But to do this for five days of walking is exceptional. As you would expect with Robin Pope Safaris, the camp is fully serviced and provides everything a guest might want at the end of an awe-inspiring day.

Need to Know

The atmospheric mobile camp is extremely comfortable and well-equipped with walk-in tents and full bedding. The shower is under a tree and the bush loo is complete with a wooden throne. An initial one night at Nkwali and a final one nights at Tena Tena or Nsefu completes the safari.
