Robin Pope Safaris
Robin Pope are known for their walking safaris in the South Luangwa region of Zambia. Offering both mobile camps and lodges, they also have a lodge on the edge of Lake Malawi offering a bush & beach combination.
Flashback to Zambia in the early 1960s... a small boy named Robin, playing in the bush, running free with a fishing rod and binoculars. From small acorns, mighty oaks grow... from those carefree days an award-winning company rooted in responsible, sustainable tourism, has flourished.
Keen to create his own company, his dream came true in 1985 with the creation of Robin Pope Safaris - Tena Tena Camp opened for business the following year and in 1988, Robin's life changed forever with the arrival of Jo Holmes (whom he later married in 1991) who came to cater at Tena Tena for the season. The next three years saw a huge growth for Robin's safari operation; creating the now hugely-successful Mobile Walking Safaris, and opening of Nkwali Camp.
The rest, as they say, is history, and the relationship between Greenlife and Robin Pope goes back over two decades.
