In this blog from Robin Pope Safaris, we hear from Mike and Jenn, the managers at Kuthengo Camp in Liwonde National Park. This month we have a wonderful collection of sightings, including lions, elephants and cheetahs! Find out more in this exciting blog written in their own words words.
So much has been happening at Kuthengo Camp and its been a hive of activity with maintenance projects, building an office, staff achievements and guests who have visited us from all corners of the globe.
So, where to begin? We have had may visits from our good friend Nicolas the elephant who has helped us remodel the gardens and trees around camp, but he still need to learn how to clean after himself. He has left so much debris around that we have not had to search for firewood for the last month.
Within the last 2 months we have had such great luck with our animal sighting, from lions in camp, to cheetahs on the flood plains to rhinos in the mopani forests. Although hot, the dryer months reap the best rewards.
While on the subject of cheetah, we are absolutely delighted to announce that we have some new kids on the block. Two adorable cheetah cubs were recently sighted with their mum. These represent the 40th and 41st cheetah cubs to be born in the park since the species’ reintroduction in 2017. Many thanks to Abbi Thompson, Wanangwa Phiri, Manu Höllinger for these incredible pics.
In other exciting news, September marks the 10 year work anniversary for Kondwani (Happy) Mulenga. Happy has worked in various department during his time at Robin Pope and was based in the Lilongwe office and doing guest transfers.

He is our everything man and we look forward to spending the future with him.”
