Robin Pope Safaris celebrates World Lion Day


Majete Wildlife Reserve is a great conservation success story, having been turned around from serious poaching and revived to Malawi’s only official Big 5 game reserve. In August 2012 Robin Pope Safaris (RPS) was instrumental in the reintroduction of lions in support of African Parks’ work in the reserve. Today Majete has a total count of at least 5 (3 adults and 2 cubs) lions.








World Lion day is celebrated on 10th August and Robin Pope Safaris is taking this as an opportunity to honour the great conservation efforts at work here. RPS will be offering guests staying at Mkulumadzi Lodge a special activity on the 9th and the 10th of August. Guests will get the opportunity to learn about and track the lions of Majete with African Parks. A donation will be made by RPS to African Parks for every guest who joins the activity.


The activity kicks off with an African Parks representative giving insight into the lions of Majete. Thereafter guests will visit the lion boma – this is optional depending on how accessible the lions are on the day for a potential sighting. Guests will then proceed on a game drive, tracking the lions from the vehicle with the VHF telemetry.









This is an exciting opportunity to get insight into Majete’s lions not worth missing!
