Robin Pope Safaris

Since Robin Pope Safaris expanded into Malawi, the warm heart of Africa, the country has developed in a safari destination in its own right. Three lodges in Majete, in Kuthengo and at Lake Malawi provide ample safari opportunities.
Hence Robin Pope Safaris has developed a number of itineraries across Malawi but also including the neighbouring countries Zambia and Zimbabwe.


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. 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 or overnighting on the spectacular sleep out.



Kuthengo Camp – the newest hideaway of Robin Pope Safaris is located on a large open plain stretching towards the Shire River in Liwonde National Park. A park is shaped by Fever trees and gigantic Baobabs with abundant birdlife and migrating elephant herds.

Daily game drives, breathtaking walking safaris or tranquil boat cruises along the grand Shire River are on offer to the small group of guests. Only four spacious and modern safari tents, maintain the rustic charm with all the usual comforts of a Robin Pope Safari camp.

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, village walks are an option.
