Wonderful place - beautiful setting, welcoming and friendly people, attentive and accommodating staff, well maintained comfortable clean accommodation, great variety of delicious food. Wonderful experience with our guide who matched each days drives to both us and our young children (ages 5, 7 & 9). Saw plenty of wildlife but not so much that it became too easy or mundane....

Have been on Safari before but staying in the "TreeHouse" was a totally unique and amazing experience. You are really "outdoors" with only a mosquito net between you and nature. Thank God the treehouse is built at least a whole story off the ground or you might have elephants sniffing your toes in the morning. Heck, with those trunks they... More

Flatdogs was everything we could have hoped for and much more! From Jess's helping with organising the trip and booking internal flights for us, the lovely welcome on arrival, the fabulous friendly staff and wonderful safari tents overlooking a river grunting with hippos...and then to the treehouse- the most magical place to stay. To be 9 feet off the ground... More

Ok, firstly, I have to say this was our fourth visit, so we obviously like Flatdogs very much. Having said that, it was a brilliant trip for us, all the staff and the owners were helpful, friendly and accommodated our whims and wishes. The game viewing in April is slightly harder, as the bush in the Park is greener and... More

Had the benefit of visiting Flatdogs, Croc Valley and Wildlife Camp and found that Flatdogs is head and shoulders above the others. Food is good, staff is great and the rangers excellent (found the leopard on 1st attempt). Note that there is no view from the chalets which is a shame and the cocktail list is slightly hypothetical as the... More

Flatdogs is a great place to stay. The menu is by far the best aspect about it. It's on the more expensive side without being that much nicer than nearby hotels, but the food selection makes it hard to beat.

Another brilliant stay. Great to be back after 6 years and see the changes - thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay.We were in one of the Safari tents and it had a great view over a small dambo where lots of wildlife were often seen. The highlight was a morning drive - really great game viewing and guiding.

We had a wonderful experience at Flatdogs Camp in March 2015. We were there at the end of the rainy season and had some concern we might not get to see all the animals well. We were pleasantly surprised to see all the animals we would have hoped to and then some! Our guide, Yotam, was fabulous. The other staff,... More

What a great experience at Flatdogs! Everyone was so nice, the facilities were well-kept, and the wild life was AMAZING. Be prepared for some 'noisy' nights. The sunset over the South Luangwa River...#priceless.

The game viewing is outstanding, very friendly staff and locals, brilliant western style food, lovely swimming pool, comfortable chalets. Flatdogs exceeded expectations by some way, do not miss any of the drives because when you think you have seem it all a new experience comes into view. This is a safari you will never forget.
