A combination of Robin Pope Safari properties in the premier Zambian park of South Luangwa plus Majete Wildlife Reserve and ending off at Lake Malawi.
The safari portion of the itinerary gives you an increased opportunity to see the Big 5 as well as other diverse wildlife species. Birders will also not be disappointed with South Luangwa having over 450 recorded bird species and Majete with 250 plus.
To end of the itinerary, you will enjoy a few nights on the shores of the crystal clear Lake Malawi. Here you will be as relaxed or as active as you like. Various activities are on offer, mainly water based but there is also birding, mountain biking and village tours.
This certainly is a great combination of two countries which are Africa’s hidden gems.
