Robin Pope Safaris is giving travelers every reason to get off the traditional safari highway and venture from bush to beach in Malawi with the opening of their brand new Kuthengo Camp in unspoiled Liwonde National Park.
Meaning “the wild” or “the bush” Kuthengo is located among fever trees on a large open plain along the spectacular Shire River. The camp is home to four spacious en-suite safari tents, each featuring an outdoor shower, bathtub, double basins and state-of-the-art ‘Evening Breeze’ air-conditioned beds, plus a private deck for enjoying sunset views.
In addition to the camp’s quiet charm, a stay at Kuthengo promises adventure around every corner. Among the fertile floodplains and ancient baobab trees of Liwonde, guests can expect game drives with frequent animal sightings and serene boating safaris. They can also experience what Robin Pope is known for: walking safaris, where guests trek on foot across the wild terrain alongside everything from elephants to buffalo to the critically endangered black rhino. There is nothing quite as heart-pumping or rewarding as encountering the wildlife of the African bush on foot. (African Parks is in the process of relocating lions to the park, returning a key species to the natural system years after the last lion was seen in Liwonde.) The camp hosts a maximum of ten guests, so the small team of guides at Kuthengo can personalize adventures to give each guest the safari experience of their dreams.
