Robin Pope's Mobile Walking Safari

Discover Zambia on foot

Having started leading safaris back in 1975, Robin Pope knows Zambia better than most, eventually opening his own safari company 11 years later. Best known for his mobile walking safari, it’s hailed as one of the leading wilderness experiences available today.

You’ll start your walking safari with an overnight stay at the Nkwali base camp, before being driven north to the game rich Mupamadzi River, which you’ll follow at a steady daily rate of approximately 10 kilometres per day, for five days.

Your expert guide will focus not only on the mighty Big Five, but also on Zambia’s smaller, lesser-known creatures like the aardvark, serval, civet and mongoose, in addition to the country’s thriving bird life, such as the African fish eagle and shoebill. There is much more to Zambia’s wildlife than just the Big Five, and here you can discover it for yourself.

Depending on how much ground you cover, you’ll lay your head down at a number of camps throughout your journey, after enjoying delicious meals every night with either the stunning African sunset or the glimmering stars as your backdrop. Each camp is rustic yet modern, well-equipped and comfortable.

Robin Pope’s mobile walking safaris offer you an incredible, immersive way to experience Zambia’s fascinating wildlife.
