Robin Pope Safaris, one of Zambia’s leading safari companies, has announced that Livingstone-based Stanley Safari Lodge has recently joined their exclusive group of luxury camps and lodges. Both parties are enthusiastic for the future and foresee Stanley Safari Lodge growing from strength to strength under the Robin Pope Safaris’ banner.
Stanley Safari Lodge opened in 2004 by founder Reinout de Gruijter and his wife, Vinciane Geelhand de Merxem. This beautiful 10 room lodge exudes old school glamour with carefully chosen colonial touches. Located just three kilometres from Victoria Falls, Stanley Safari Lodge benefits from an exclusive setting bordering the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park with unmatched views of the Falls and the Zambezi River.
The addition of Stanley Safari Lodge to the Robin Pope Safaris’ family uniquely enhances their Zambian circuit. With locations in the heart of the bush and now at the edge of the Falls, Robin Pope Safaris will showcase the absolute best that Zambia has to offer. Guests will have the opportunity to seamlessly discover two of nature’s greatest wonders – Victoria Falls and the Big Five.
Adrenaline junkies can get their pulses racing with activities such as micro-lighting over the Falls or dipping into the devil’s pool at the lip of the gorge, while culture vultures can satisfy their appetites with historical tours of Livingstone. For the Big Five, Robin Pope Safaris will expertly lead guests through some of the most game-rich areas of Zambia, either by 4×4 or on foot, the mode they are most famed for.
Since its birth in 1986, Robin Pope Safaris has always been synonymous with excellent service, responsible tourism and expert guiding. Their special group of safari camps and experiences are based in the unspoilt South Luangwa National Park, home to one of the greatest collections of wildlife in the world. The camps include an all weather camp at Nkwali, two dry season camps in Nsefu as well as walking and fly camping safari operations. All properties offer a true luxury wilderness experience where guests are treated to delicious evening meals under star-studded skies, accommodation with a timeless elegance and, of course, some of the best service and private guides in Africa.
