Robin Pope Safaris' new responsible tourism trip

12th June 2014 Print

Continuously guided by responsible tourism, Robin Pope Safaris has launched a new tailormade eight-day safari trip in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, highlighting its local partners in community development and wildlife conservation.

Explore the lesser-visited Luangwa Valley, unspoilt by safari tourism and home to dense populations of game, whilst staying at Robin Pope Safaris properties, Nkwali, Tena Tena and / or Nsefu. Learn how tourism operations, when handled responsibly, can benefit the environment and gain an insight into the following:

Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust – founded by Brits Steve and Anna Tolan, the trust teaches local school children about conservation in its unique education centre in the South Luangwa National Park and via an outreach programme.

South Luangwa Conservation Society - founded by local stakeholders, the society handles all manner of conservation projects, from wildlife rescue and rehabilitation to human/wildlife conflict.

Zambian Carnivore Programme – originally initiated for research into wild dogs, this extensive programme now covers conservation and anti-poaching measures relating to all carnivores.

There’s also an overnight stay in Kawaza, a really simple working village (a great experience for children). Visit a market and meet producers of native art, Tribal Textiles, as well as seeing a local theatre performance.

Price from £2,289 pp (two sharing) including seven nights’ accommodation, full board, visits to local responsible tourism partners as requested,
airport transfers.
