Robin Pope Liuwa Plains Safari C

Robin Pope Liuwa Plains Safari C: In full

The Robin Pope Liuwa Plains safari offers you a wonderful chance to explore this remote and pristine park in the west of Zambia – and is led by one of Zambia's top guides; in May, June and November 2011, Robin Pope himself will lead a small number of safaris to watch the fascinating wildebeest migration which occurs in Liuwa Plain National Park.

See below for the dates of the trips – these are fixed – but note that it's very easy to add on other areas to make a longer Zambian safari. Easily added onto the start or the end of this trip, these can combine Liuwa Plain with a stay either in Zambia, or travel further afield to Botswana, Zimbabwe or Malawi.
