I traveled here with a girlfriend in May of 2013. We were a little nervous coordinating our first trip to Africa via the internet- but the reviews were so excellent and the prices competitive so we booked with Flatdogs. We could not have been happier. Since it was just post-rainy season it was very quiet, but I had the impression... More

This was our first foray into the wilds of Africa and we had heard from family that the people were wonderfully helpful, the place had great service and the safari was really interesting and productive. All were true and the dining was really remarkable to boot - fresh food, prepared with real skill and creativity and full of surprises, like... More

We stayed at Flatdogs for 3 nights in April. We planned our trip at the last minute. We had never done a safari and knew little about Zambia. We were hesitating between the Lower Zambezi national park and South luangwa. So happy we picked South luangwa! Special thanks to Jess who helped us to plan our stay as well as... More

Living in Zambia has its challenges so when we needed some rest and relaxation we chose flat dogs based on the ratings of trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Jess made us feel like part of the family. The food is superb the guides are fantastic. When our 2 year old wanted sausages from the sausage tree Malama promised to... More

We went to flatdogs with my wife, two young children (1 and 5) and parents. We stayed in the family chalet. I have to say that from beginning to end it was superb, the staff we friendly and efficient. The guides knowledgeable and the swimming pool fantastic. The food was brilliant and the staff always willing to accommodate our cantankerous... More

Our group of 7 had such a great time in March 2014 at Flatdogs. The last minute package special is an amazing deal and we all got to stay together in the family chalet, which was perfect for a group of our size. Jess helped us plan a perfect weekend that was flexible and allowed us to take full advantage... More

We had a nice time at Flatdogs! Everything was good. We stayed in a house and in the luxury tent. I can recommend both of them, but the tent is more amazing because you can hear and see the wild animals near your tent! Like hippo's and elephants. The gamedrives are also very good organized. We saw a lot of... More

I stayed here with a friend in the rainy season. We had great weather and saw a ton of game (a leopard every day!). Our safari guide, Yotam, was amazingly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and perceptive. I think we saw a lot of animals that other trucks missed. The lodging and food were bath great, as was all the staff.
