Already in the late '70s, the people and nature of Malawi fascinated the young Dutchman Cees Slager when he travelled to Africa for the first time. The successful tourism entrepreneur visited the Phalombe Hospital near Mulanje years later and remembered why he loved this country so much. During this time he made his first contact with Robin Pope, who at the time was looking for an investor for his growing safari company in Zambia. In order to coordinate this investment and to set up Pumulani (2008) and Mkulumadzi (2011) lodges, Cees’s daughter Margaux and her husband Ton de Rooy moved to Lilongwe in Malawi, from where they supervised and further developed the smooth takeover of Robin Pope Safaris in the following years, integrating their own activities in Malawi.
Kuthengo Camp – the newest hideaway of Robin Pope Safaris is located on a large open plain stretching towards the Shire River in Liwonde National Park. The park is shaped by Fever trees and gigantic Baobabs with abundant birdlife and migrating elephant herds.
