Robin Pope Safaris


The three safari camps operated by Robin Pope Safaris (Nkwali Camp, Nsefu Camp & Tena Tena Camp) offer a unique combination of creature comforts and stunning remote locations in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park.

However, some of our guests want to get even further out into the wilderness, to immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of the bush. For these adventurers, we offer dedicated walking safaris. Walking through the bush is a completely different experience to driving. All your senses are alert. Every sound, every movement - the flap of a bird's wing, a tail swishing through the tall grass - acquires significance.

This is where an expert safari guide really comes into his own. Not only will they point out wildlife and birdlife to you, they will also teach you to hone and sharpen your senses and to spot the clues that lie around you in the bush. As one of our guests said after walking for five days with Robin, it is like reading an engrossing book, compared to watching a film.

One should remember that when on a walking safari, you will not spend your time exclusively on foot. We tailor all our safaris to meet the wishes of our guests and you will usually split your time between walking and driving.

Robin Pope Mobile Walking SafariMOBILE WALKING SAFARI

Our Mobile Walking Safaris have been operating since 1991 and were the first such walking safaris in Africa. Combining our safari camps with a five day walk which is backed up by a totally mobile camp - a winning combination for those looking to be totally immersed in the bush.


Luangwa Bush Camping is camping and walking in the South Luangwa National Park's Nsefu Sector, in the game rich riverine areas of the lagoons and woodlands that run along side the Luangwa River. This is usually combined with a stay at both Tena Tena Camp and Nsefu Camp.


For those who are interested in exploring the North Luangwa National Park, we highly recommend this superb walking safari at Kutandala. Although walking is the focus of Kutandala there are a couple of excursions by vehicle - one being to the mouth of the Mwaleshi where there is a huge pod of hippos.
