We have some exciting updates to share from the team of Robin Pope Safaris. New wildlife, birthday celebrations and travelling opening again.
Majete Wildlife reserve welcomes back wild dogs
After many years this apex predator has returned to Majete. Wild dogs went locally extinct in Majete many years ago. GD Hayes recorded seeing 6 animals near Pwadzi spring in the early 50’s.
In July they welcomed 3 males and 3 females to Majete. They will spend the 4 weeks in a holding facility in the park, after which they will be released to roam free in the reserve.
May they adapt and roam the wide expanses of Majete for many years to come.
Mkulumadzi is 10 !
In case you hadn’t heard: Mkulumadzi Lodge turned 10 in July this year!
Surrounded by 7000 hectares of private concession in the Majete Wildlife reserve in Malawi, Mkulumadzi is situated at the confluence of two rivers in the idyllic Majete Wildlife Reserve (hence also the appropriate name which means “big water” in the local Chichewa language) This location is shaded by giant leadwood trees and the rooms look out onto the iconic Shire River and in order for you to get to the lodge, you have to cross the Mkulumadzi river.
Located in the south of the country, close to the city of Blantyre, Majete Wildlife Reserve is part of Africa’s Great Rift Valley.
Majete Wildlife Reserve is a testament to the outstanding conservation efforts in Malawi. This vast region is home to mature woodland and granite hills, picturesque river valleys and dense forest.
Join us in congratulating Robin Pope Safaris on the 10th year of existence of Mkulumadzi
