South Luangwa with Robin Pope Safaris

Secrets of South Luangwa

11 days

from $5,495pp (excluding flights)

Robin Pope Safaris are synonymous with great guiding and accommodation in the South Luangwa, Zambia. This 9 night holiday incorporates seven nights on Safari with the experts at Robin Pope Safaris to unlock the secrets of the South Luangwa. With four different camps to choose from, a holistic safari experience awaits, ideal for first time visitors to Zambia.

  • Walk amongst the animals of the South Luangwa alongside some of southern Africa's finest guides
  • Sample traditional bush cuisine and unbeatable African hospitality
  • South Luangwa is renowned for its huge elephant herds, big cats and exquisite bird life

Nkwali and the new Luangwa river camp are situated just outside of the main park with fabulous river views and comfortable and spacious rooms. Nsefu camp lies within the national park, built on the footprint of Luangwa’s first ever Bushcamp. Tena Tena is the only tented camp with far reaching river views and an atmosphere that only a tented camp can provide.

A light aircraft flight from Lusaka to Mfuwe opens the gateway to the safari, giving a wonderful perspective over South Luangwa and the mighty Zambezi River. This itinerary includes time at Luangwa River Camp, Nsefu and Tena Tena but any combination of camps is possible and choices are dependent on season. Some great offers are available throughout the year at Robin Pope so ask our African experts for advise.

Across the board a safari in South Luangwa with Robin Pope offers a great opportunity to view the unique wildlife and birds of the area under the guidance of some of the best guides in the industry.

Jackie Devereux, Travel Expert

"Every part of our trip was the highlight and it is not possible for us to point out just one thing, event or place."

"However, we received a magnificent surprise of a helicopter ride between camps in Botswana which meant a flight over the delta and an opportunity to see the delta and how it is formed. It was a wonderful surprise organised by Jackie and we were both absolutely overjoyed with the opportunity. I do not believe that there was more that could have been done as we had a magnificent trip."

"Jackie was excellent- she listened and was very knowledgeable."
