We stayed at Flatdogs Camp for three nights and could not have been more impressed and excited! First of all the game drives were amazing, our guide Yotam seemed to know every square inch of the park. We saw leopards on every single drive, a couple of lions as well and lots of elephants, buffalos, crocs, hippos, giraffes, zebras and... More

We stayed at Flatdogs for four nights in October 2014 and our experience surpassed all expectations. Jess, Adie and the entire staff are incredibly hospitable and accommodating with a natural charm. Whatever your wishes, you only had to say it, and it happened! Our guide Byron was fantastic. The setting of the camp is outstanding. We were in the luxury... More

I feel as though I'm reciting the same thing every review says: Flatdogs Camp is awesome. We stayed for two nights, with the second night including the safari package. We did the morning safari and the evening one and very much enjoyed the day. The food at the camp was excellent, and the accommodations were clean and very comfortable. I... More

I will add to the chorus of praise. The owners are delightful and welcoming, The location - just outside the park on a riverfront - is excellent. Lots of animals in the area, with elephants, baboons and giraffes wandering by or through at times. The food is very good. Our guides for game viewing were excellent. The internet access went...

We were recommended Flatdogs by Trip Africa and it was certainly a fantastic choice. The whole package that Jess, Adie, Paolo, Sam and the team provide is outstanding. We stayed in the Treehouse and although you need to get used to things that bump in the night (!!) we would definitely say it's worth a try. Waking up to an... More

When visiting South Luwangwa and on a budget or feeling a bit adventurous, Flatdogs is the place to be! It was amazing to pitch a tent on an elevated platform in a tree! The communal kitchen and bar is splendid for sharing campfire stories and meeting people. The management and staff are very friendly and most of all, the animals... More

We visited many camps in Zambia, but Flatdogs was a huge surprise to us as it was so affordable compared to other camps. The guides and animal spotting were superb and we saw a leopard in action on our very first night! Meals were delicious and could be ordered a la carte at any time of the day with the... More
