Kirurumu Under Canvas

Kirurumu Under Canvas offers a complete circuit of tented properties for safaris in Northern Tanzania. We are a leading provider of private mobile luxury camps, and an integral part of our ethos and efforts is working hand in hand with local communities towards sustainable tourism and wilderness preservation.

Our mobile classic-style tented camps follow the annual migration, while our permanent tented lodges are strategically placed to enjoy both wildlife and cultural experiences. Our camps are luxurious but not over the top, allowing us to keep prices reasonable.

We use custom-built 4×4’s, which are replaced on a regular basis, with a mix of open game drive cars for our game packages, based at our mobile camps.


Le Riad Hotel de Charme

Le Riad Hotel de Charme is a luxury boutique hotel located in the heart of Old Cairo, in El Gamaleya district, and is the only 5* boutique hotel in this location. It faces the exceptional old Ottoman houses of the famous Beit el Sehemy, which inspires the hotel’s Old Town Cairo architecture.

Each of its 17 rooms has individual furnishings with rich warm colours, Fatimid fabrics, antique wooden furniture and paintings from local talented artists, with Bedouin, Mamluk, Syrian, Ottoman, Pharaonic or Modern Arabic styles.

With a relaxed tea lounge for breakfast and informal dining, and a rooftop restaurant with panoramic views over the streets and alleyways of Old Cairo, Le Riad offers a friendly and convenient stay, in an exceptional location. Getting enjoyably lost amongst the winding alleys while walking from the hotel to the nearby Khan-el-Khalili bazaar is one of the pleasures of staying here.

Approximately 1 hour from the airport (traffic allowing) and under 30 minutes’ drive from the Egyptian Museum and Coptic Cairo, we are can provide an airport meet and greet and transfer service. In addition to the friendly and professional service from our team inside the hotel, with 24-hour front desk, we also offer free wifi throughout the hotel

RPS Walking & Specialist Safaris

Robin Pope Safaris is famous for walking safaris – Robin was a pioneer of the walking safari in Zambia back in the 1980s. We offer walking safaris from our camps, as one of your daily activities, where you experience how immersive and exciting it is to see animals on foot.

Luangwa Bush Camping, with the best of guides, dips deeper into the bush by camping out for a couple of nights, with simple but delicious dinner and stories around the fire. We often walk between Tena Tena and Nsefu for two or three days, camping on the way, in one of the most lagoon rich areas of the Luangwa, hence the game is superb.

Our iconic Mobile Walking Safari has long been known as one of Africa’s best wilderness experiences. Here our most experienced guides take you to the Mupamadzi River, a remote and wild area where the terrain and habitats are varied, and the game unused to humans. From ants to buffalo, a bird’s nest to tracking a lion, you will learn the many facets of the bush, while spending 5 nights in a fully-serviced, comfortable and well-equipped mobile camp.

We also offer specialist safaris, such as the Bat Safari in Kasanka, when the skies darken with 10 -14 million fruit bats, a Photographic Workshop for a week in South Luangwa, our  Carnivore Week with the Zambian Carnivore Programme researchers, or a safari by boat with our River Journeys, where you visit areas inaccessible by road.

We also offer Family Tours, where we have designed itineraries specifically designed with children in mind. These tours are tailor -made, allowing your guide to be more flexible with your itinerary during the day, and to spend more/less time at certain sites according to the interest and ages of your children.
