end May to 31 October

If you stay at either of Robin Pope safari's camps in the Nsefu Sector of the South Luangwa National Park, Nsefu or Tena Tena, then it's also possible to opt (in advance) to go on a RPS bushcamp for a night or two – to sleep out with your guide, deep in the bush, around a campfire.

This involves walking with your guide and a maximum of three other guests. You camp simply, using a small canvas tent, a hot bucket shower and a long-drop toilet – though a camp assistant and a chef come along to help raise the experience to a magical one!

As well as Nsefu and its nearby sister camp, Tena Tena, Robin Pope Safaris also run Nkwali, Robin's House and the Luangwa Safari House in the Mfuwe area of park. Further afield, in the Lower Zambezi National Park, RPS are also partly responsible for Chongwe River House.

Special interests

Solo Travel: Solo travellers sometimes include a night in the Robin Pope Safaris’ bush-camp as part of an adventurous holiday. This very intimate experience leads you deep into the bush where you sleep out around a campfire – and remarkably there’s no single-person supplement.
