A must do experience.

Great to do for one or two nights.

Very different wildlife experience than on a driving safari.

Expectations exceeded with the bush camp

This was a very memorable experience - on this occasion we were the only guests, so it was particularly special. We walked between the two excellently located camps with our guide Braston, whose guiding skills are exceptional, whilst Chris the scout kept us safe.

We learnt to distinguish between the droppings (both white) of hyenas and crocodiles, as well as that of many other animals. Seeing elephant shrews in daylight at close quarters was a first. We will remember for a long time how we saw a pride of lions 150 metres away, and then slowly approached them to a distance of about 25 metres.

The food was amazingly good; coq au vin one evening, and barbecued steaks, sausages, vegetable kebabs and jacket potatoes on the second night, together with a full bar service including ice! The lunches were also good, and we had Zambian cheeses on one occasion - the goat cheese was particularly good.

The whole bush camp experience was wonderful and faultless. We appreciate very much the efforts of the whole team involved in the operation of looking after us, and moving the camp from one location to the next.

Something different!

We really enjoyed the walking/bush camping safari with Braston and his team. It's a great way to see and learn about the smaller things you miss on a game drive like tracks, droppings, animal movements and relationship they have with their environment. Although we were extremely lucky to stumble across 11 lions (with cubs!) it's not about viewing big game as they're much more warey of people on foot than they are of vehicles but it's great to stretch your legs and get some exercise whilst getting close to nature. We really learned a lot.

The two fly camps were very comfortable, with drop toilets and a fab bucket shower facility. We walked in the morning for a few hours to the next camp, then a siesta and another walk in the evening. He even took us for a drive one evening as we heard their were wild dogs around (sadly we didn't see them, which was unfortunately the same story everywhere).

Braston was a great, knowledgeable and friendly guide and his team were fantastic. On both Robin Pope safaris (here & Tena Tena) they took my vegan dietery requirements very seriously and provided soy milk, margarine and treats. Considering British Airways can't even supply soy milk on their flights, this is nothing short of a miracle!

I would recommend a 2 night walking safari to those who've got a bit tired of sitting in a vehicle for hours as a way to enjoy something a bit different.

Robin Pope Safaris bush-camp review

The highlight of our trip! It could not be improved on.

Kanga and his team were fantastic and Kangar himself was by far our best guide both for his enthusiasm and ability to put over information.

Amazing

I have to say that I was pretty scared before I did the walking safari, but I am so pleased I did it. It was so informative, and really helped my understanding of the whole ecosystem including animal behavior. I found that it also helped me to appreciate the game drives better.

Kanga was an absolute wealth of knowledge, both on the walks and watching the stars before dinner. Also appreciated his sense of humor. Chris and Sebastian made us feel safe whilst out in the middle of nowhere, and watching Chris use his skills to move off a hippo was brilliant.

With my new wealth of knowledge I no longer felt as scared of the animals and this really ramped up my enjoyment of the whole safari.

Robin Pope Safaris : Luangwa Bush Camp

Stayed for three nights at two separate bush camps with Kanga as our guide. For us this was one of the highlights of our trip walking between and from the bush camps. Kanga's knowledge as a guide was phenomenal.

Walking safaris should not be missed.

The best experience the highlight of our trip

With Kango and his team as our guides we had an amazing two days .His style, passion and knowledge was eagerly shared.

It took camping to a new level and was far more comfortable than we could ever have imagined.....loved the mobile bar. His astronomy tutorial was an added bonus....we learnt so much from him.

Robin Pope Safaris bush-camp review

Definitely a highlight of our Zambia experience. Perfect organization, camp, facilities and food. The most important, the guide and security, was just perfect. The real African experience.

We did only one night but would recommend at least two to three nights. Everything is done to adapt to the customer needs and wishes

Robin pope is a Fantastic customer orientated company, highly recommendable despite of Tena Tena experience.
