On arrival at Livingstone International Airport a representative from Stanley Safaris will meet and transfer you to the lodge (20 mins), where you will settle into your accommodation. Stanley Safari Lodge is located on the hills overlooking the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls in a bush location. Accommodation is in 10 uniquely designed chalets that are constructed of teak and local stone and are open fronted with colonial style brick and tiled rooms which are closed. Each with a private balcony ensuring spectacular views overlooking the Zambezi River and suites have plunge pools.
There is a wide range of activities on offer in the area that can be booked at the lodge these include trips to see the falls, town museums and markets and sunset cruises. For the more adventurous, Livingstone boasts a whole host of adrenaline filled activities including whitewater rafting, bungee jumping and micro lighting. Or you may just wish to rest in camp and enjoy the spectacular scenery and peaceful atmosphere. The day will end with a relaxed dinner and perhaps drinks in the wine cellar.
Depending on your flight time you will be transferred by vehicle to Livingstone Airport to connect with your onward flight to Mfuwe, South Luangwa. At Mfuwe International Airport a guide from Robin Pope Safaris will meet you. The drive to the Robin’s House is just under an hour through colourful local scenes of villages, agriculture as well as bush. Robin’s House lies on the banks of the Luangwa River with a stunning view across to the park and the escarpment. The house has two bedrooms, both with large bathrooms. The main area is both a sitting room and dining room. Most meals are taken outside under a huge ebony tree. During lunch animals and birds, including the hippo that live nearby in the river, will give a superb backdrop to the meal. The house has a private guide and host to look after every need.
During your stay at the house the rhythm of your day is your choice. This is the joy of staying at a private house. The usual day will start with breakfast at just after dawn. The morning walk or drive will leave soon after, entering the park by boat from the camp or by the nearby pontoon. The game in the area is excellent – and includes many family herds of elephants and the endemic species of giraffe, the Thornicroft Giraffe. A mid-morning break of tea, coffee and cake will be taken by a scenic point on a lagoon or the Luangwa River. Return to the house for lunch around mid-day. After lunch you can cool off in the swimming pool or siesta.
Another day to enjoy the game viewing or you may wish to go on an all day picnic – this is a very flexible day. Taking a scout with you, you will be able to enjoy a walk or explore further afield in the park. We always recommend a visit to the community, by going to the Kawaza Village and School. The visit to the village gives further insight in the local life.
After an early breakfast, transfer to Mfuwe Airport for your flight to Lilongwe. The flight time to Lilongwe is approximately 50 minutes. On arrival at Lilongwe’s Kamuzu Airport, you will be met by the representative, who will assist with immigration procedures.. Then onto your road transfer to Pumulani. Pumulani is situated on the Westside of the Nankumba Peninsula in the South end of Lake Malawi – romantically called “The Lake of Stars”. The ten villas are scattered around the hillside and are individual in shape and style but all have a spacious bedroom, bathroom and extensive sitting area. The front sliding doors open onto the deck – elevated above the ground giving optimal views.
The central dinning and bar area is high above the lake with the most spectacular views and leads onto an expansive deck. The infinity swimming pool is on a lower terraced deck. The lake shore bar offers light snacks as well as refreshments. Meals will be served in the dining area, on the beach or by arrangement on your private deck. The stunning setting of the lodge and the unique comfort of the rooms means that many guests choose to make relaxation their main activity, but there are enough activities available to keep guests busy.
For those seeking activity they offer many watersports activities like snorkelling, fishing, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing, wake boarding and fun tube rides (all motorized activities are excluded). At the end of the day climb aboard our dhow and let experienced local crewmen take you sailing into the sunset.
