Robin Pope Safaris

Robin Pope Safaris, one of the oldest photographic safari companies operating in Zambia since the mid eighties, built up an extraordinary knowledge on Zambia’s nature, wildlife and people in over 30 years of experience. In 2006 they joined forces with other partners to expand their services into Malawi. The two new properties compliment the quality service and creative ideas offered by Robin Pope Safaris at all times – the perfect “bush and beach" holiday was born.

Mkulumadzi is located within Majete Wildlife Reserve, 70km South West of Blantyre, in Southern Malawi. The lodge is situated in the North of Majete Wildlife Reserve, at the confluence of the Mkulumadzi and Shire rivers within a 7,000ha private concession. Majete is one of Malawi’s largest protected areas and covers an area of over 70.000ha. The reserve is located within the Miombo woodland ecoregion and carries some very special game. Regularly viewed mammals in the park include sable, nyala, Lichtenstein hartebeest, as well as elephant, black rhino, buffalo, eland and many more.
Activities on offer include game-drives, boating safaris, bush walks, hiking Majete Hill, black rhino tracking, cultural tours, birding trips on the Shire River.

Pumulani – “The brightest star on the Lake” is situated on the Westside of the Nankumba Peninsula in the South end of Lake Malawi.The Nankumba Peninsula is recognised as one of the most beautiful shores of the Lake and borders Lake Malawi National Park. This Park was established in order to protect the cichlid fish unique to the area. In 1984 the park was designated a World Heritage Site.
The lodge is built on a steep hillside which provides the most spectacular views from the villas, dining and main lodge area.

Activities include snorkeling, kayaking, water skiing, fun tube, wake boarding, sailing, fishing and scuba diving as well as birding.
For those who want to get acquainted with true African life we offer village walks.

Robin Pope Safaris is a member of Classic Safari Camps of Africa.
