This house was originally the family accommodation for Robin and Jo Pope – the owners and founders of Robin Pope Safaris. It sits on private land in the game management area so the accommodation is secluded and private, perfect for families or two couples travelling together. Compared to the Luangwa Safari House, Robin’s House is simplistic in its design and accommodation but certainly provides everything you need.


Robin’s House is in the same location as Nkwali Camp and Luangwa Safari House (both camps operated by Robin Pope Safaris). The game is more reliable inside the park so game drives and activities take part inside the park which is accessible via boat or pontoon. This avoids the busier main gate near Mfuwe.


This is a two-bedroom house perfect for exclusivity for small families or couples travelling together. The lounge and dining area separates the two bedrooms and its design and décor make Robin’s House feel like a home away from home.


The two bedrooms are simple and comfortable. As this was once Robin and Jo’s personal home, the house ticks all of the practicality boxes. It may lack vibrancy but it definitely makes you feel cosy as it includes childrens toys, coffee table books and plenty of historical maps and books for guests to get stuck into.


Robin’s House sits on the game management area on Robin’s private land. There is game in this area, but the game drives and walks tend to be done across the river inside the national park. To get across, the group staying in the private house will either be guided across by boat or pontoon and a safari vehicle will be waiting on the other side.

Perfect for families or couples looking for a private experience

The house lacks vibrancy or a ‘wow-factor’ in its design
