Second time around, everything was perfect.. the people, the food, the service and Jess had organised it all very well once again. One downer while staying at the treehouse though: The baboons were much more persistent this time. We stayed again in early september (maybe earlier than last year), unfortunately the time when the fruit in the tree is ripe... More

Elephants, hippos, baboons, birds, river, etc., etc! We had a tent cabin at the very end of the path by the river and were within feet of the large number of elephants' daily and nightly "trek". Unbelievable to watch their routine and gentle care for each other. Fabulous animals. Baboons played on our roof and the swimming pool provided a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Flatdogs. The attentive staff, fun accommodations, and great food was wonderful. Our trips into the park were fabulous and the guide very well versed with all the questions we asked--even some odd and buzzard ones. I would like to stay here again.

Amazing amazing restaurant, and the only place locals go for fine dining. Safaris everywhere in town are excellent. This place was no exception. It is also one of the few places with wifi. The only downside is that none of their vehicles have covers, which made for an unpleasant experience for all of us. We stayed in several camps in... More

Hi there, Thanks for the great review of the camp and meals etc. Very nice to hear and we are very glad you had a nice time. I apologise for the lack of covers on our vehicles that made you feel particularly susceptible to the sun. And sorry that this made you not want to go on safari with us... More

What a great camp. The tents are large and facing the river. You never knew who would be walking around camp during the day or night. We woke one evening and watched a elephant her calf walking around our tent, and a little while later a hippo came by, it was great to see. One afternoon a troupe of baboons... More

My wife and I recently stayed 3 nights (August 2014) at Flatdogs and had a wonderful time. Jess and Ade were great hosts! Our guide Kennedy was very good. He took us on an exciting game walk where we saw our first ever Bush pig. You did not even have to leave the camp to view game. There were Elephants... More

We were more than pleasantly surprised by Flatdogs, as people at other camps had played it down and some sources suggest that it has a bad location. We found it to be delightful. The owners are genuinely concerned with their guests and show it -- they offered medication for an eye infection I had, then followed up daily to see... More

I recently stayed here for 6 nights whilst on honeymoon. My wife and I left flatdogs thrilled with our stay. We are arrived in time for our first night drive and saw lion, leopard, buffalo...pretty much everything luangwa has to offer. This then continued across every safari we did. We were amazed to see lion and leopard every day, including... More

We spent two nights there in a lovely tent with all the confort you need. The camp is just amazing; elephants are grazing around the area, sometimes you have to wait for them to leave in order to go to your tent, monkeys are playing everywhere... I really love the place. In two and a half day we saw a... More

Having never written a review for trip advisor before, I feel compelled to do so now as I recommend Flatdogs camp whole-heartedly. As I began looking into Zambian holidays from the UK, nothing was too much trouble for Jess, with questions being answered quickly, efficiently and in a friendly way. So it came as no surprise that on arrival she... More
