Robin Pope and John Stevens (John Stevens Guided Safaris Africa), pioneers of safaris in Zambia and Zimbabwe, who have set benchmarks in mobile-tented walking safaris in Southern Africa, have now combined their synergies in an exciting new venture in Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe.
John's daughter Sarah, and her husband Milo Harrup (who formerly ran the Mana Pools Safari Company) have formed Robin Pope Safaris Zimbabwe, to operate and manage John's Camp, a brand new semi-permanent tented camp in Mana Pools.
Sarah draws from her experiences growing up with her father, and together, she and Milo have brought a contemporary style to this luxury, colonial-style safari camp on the banks of the Zambezi River.
Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is situated in the heart of 12,000 square kms of the Zambezi Valley. The park is one of the most outstanding walking locations in Zimbabwe and among the last remaining wild-walking parks in Africa.
A charming 10-bed, semi-permanent tented camp, John’s Camp enjoys stunning views across a flood plain towards the Zambezi River. The concept is simple but the experience is intimate, offering guests exceptional service, great game viewing and top-notch guides. John is available to guide on request, for the ultimate in guiding know-how.
Sarah Stevens is also running Robin Pope Safaris Travel Zimbabwe, offering ground handling within Zimbabwe, as well as add-ons to tie in with the rest of the Robin Pope Safaris portfolio which includes properties in Zambia and Malawi.
