Family Safaris Explore wild Africa on foot The ultimate safari

Get Addicted to Africa

At Robin Pope Safaris we have one simple goal: to give our guests an amazing African safari holiday, experiencing the wonder of Africa's secluded wilderness, rich culture and outstanding wildlife, whilst staying in our lodges and safari camps in Zambia and Malawi.

Robin Pope Safaris launched in 1986, and have always believed in offering exceptional customer care and bespoke holidays. We offer architecturally-stunning safari homes, rustic, yet sophisticated safari properties, and none of our exclusive bush camps sleep more than twelve.

Our camps in South Luangwa, Zambia are based out in protected land which is home to an impressive array of wildlife from leopards, lions and elephants, to giraffes, hippos and more than 450 species of birds. Our guides are passionate about the game and environment, and love to share the secrets of the land with our guests. Our Mobile Walking Safaris truly unravel the secrets of the bush.

In Livingstone, home to one of seven natural wonders of the world - the Victoria Falls, we have Stanley Safari Lodge. It’s set on a hill overlooking unspoilt bush and with views from every room of the spray of the Falls in the distance only three kilometers away.

As well as our operations in Zambia we have two stunning properties in Malawi. Pumulani, on the beautiful shores of Lake Malawi,offers a relaxing beach haven. Team together a stay at Pumulani with time at Mkulumadzi, in luxury bush chalets in the secluded Majete Wildlife Reserve, or any of our superb Zambian properties, to create an unbeatable beach and bush holiday.

We can tailor-make a range of safaris throughout Zambia and Malawi. This includes Liuwa Plain and the Lower Zambezi, Kafue and North Luangwa National Parks plus the best of Malawi.

Whether you want a true wilderness experience, time lazing on the beach, a chance to immerse yourself in local culture, or even learning new skills, we look forward to making your dreams come true, by creating a tailor-made holiday, just for you.
