The Coppinger History

John was first introduced to the Luangwa Valley as a young boy in the 1960s…just a century after David Livingstone crossed the Luangwa on his final expedition. John’s father was surveying the Gt East Rd and the family would join him and proceed to the Valley for long weekends. Thus began a passion for the area that would last a lifetime. In 1984, whilst seeking work as a bush pilot, he was invited by Robin Pope to work as a Guide at Nsefu Camp for the season, an offer that he found irresistible.
