Robin Pope Safaris Announces New Camp in Malawi
Robin Pope Safaris – synonymous with extraordinarily well-run safaris, staying at its own top-class camps in wilderness areas – is delighted to announce the forthcoming opening of its keenly-anticipated new camp in southern Malawi’s lush Liwonde National Park.
On 27 April 2018, Kuthengo Camp – four spacious, extremely comfortable and authentic safari tents – will open to guests. Hidden amid Fever Trees and Baobabs, and situated on a large open plain stretching towards the glorious Shire River, each en suite abode has an outdoor shower, a bathtub, double basins, and state-of-the-art ‘evening breeze air-conditioned beds, plus a private deck (the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner whilst watching herds of waterbuck).
Liwonde is a virtually untouched national park which promises adventurous game drives and walking safaris and peaceful boat cruises. The diverse environments – riverine, grassland and Mopane Woodlands – are home to hippos, crocodiles, elephant, buffalo, endangered black rhino and antelope.
Cheetah has recently been reintroduced to Liwonde, thanks to conservation efforts in the area, and there are plans to reintroduce lions as well, restoring it to a Big Five park. Liwonde is also a birder’s paradise, with nearly 300 species, including the Böhm’s Bee-eater, Livingstone’s Flycatcher and Lillian’s lovebird.
Rate is from £280 pp per night including full board, drinks and safari activities.
Robin Pope Safaris has other properties in Malawi (Pumulani, Lake Malawi and Mkulumadzi, Majete Wildlife Reserve); Zambia (South Luangwa National Park and Victoria Falls, Livingstone); and in Zimbabwe (John’s Camp). Two-centre trips are a speciality and easily arranged. For further information, see www.robinpopesafaris.net

When I first started out travel writing, twenty years ago, I was writing a weekly round-up for The Independent. The first PR agency I ever tapped into for their clients' holiday ideas was Travel PR; they were always full of great suggestions for the column and responded quickly. Over the years, I've worked with them on many occasions and their close association with AITO has always paid dividends. Nothing has changed; some of the best story ideas I get herald from them, and their response time remains very speedy. They are a pleasure to work with.Mark Stratton, Freelance Travel Writer
