SOUTH LUANGWA, Zambia (12/2013) Robin Pope Safaris (RPS), the conservation-conscious company known for its innovative safaris, is offering a 10% discount on its seven-night Emerald Season River Journeys in celebration of a new BBC2 documentary (Africa 2013: Countdown to the Rains) shot in the Nsefu sector, with the film crew staying at RPS’ Tena Tena tented camp.
Rates start at US$2667 sharing and include all safari activities, accommodations at Nwalki, Nsefu and Luangwa River Camp; meals, bar, laundry and transfers to and from Mfuwe airport. Excluded are domestic round-trip flights from Lusaka (US$570 per person); airport taxes, Visa fees and International flights. Offer is valid for safaris booked before January, 2014 and are valid from January 22 to March 31, 2014.
Robin Pope Safaris River Journeys cover one of Zambia’s premier national parks – the South Luangwa. The Luangwa Valley marks the end of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and is one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas and arguably the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa.
“The Luangwa Valley is at its most dramatic in the Emerald Season with the Luangwa River flowing into the brimming lagoons. Boating into the lagoons, flooded ebony groves and flowing channels gives safari-goers a glimpse of the Valley not normally accessible in this season,” says RPS Managing Director Ton de Rooy.
Guests will also be able to experience walking in the bush; day and night game drives; a Kawaza Village Tour, and visits to Tribal Textiles (for stylish souvenirs) and Chipembele Wildlife Orphanage.
