The staff at Flatdogs have been sterling - Jess, Paolo and Ade had been very accommodating and arranged everything for us (especially Jess!). We were greeted at the airport by a guide from Tours Africa and then picked up at Mfuwe Airport. This initial meet was much appreciated as it orientated us to our Zambian immigration/airport worked and what was... More

My wife and I have just returned home after spending a further 6 fantastic nights at Flatdogs. (We were also there 2 years ago) I know it's all been said before but feel that we really must add our names to the list of guests who are absolutely overwhelmed by the accommodation, meals, friendliness and knowledge of the staff and...

I write this report with very limited experience of Flatdogs, ie one night only with husband and adult daughter, but based on that I have no hesitation in giving Flatdogs and the staff in particular a massive thumbs up. Emirates managed to completely mess up and we missed our first two nights at Flatdogs. All three of us were exhausted,... More

We stayed 4 nights at Flatdogs, 3 in the Treehouse and 1 in the Croc's Nest. Both accommodations were fantastic - comfy, spacious and with great views. As the camp is located very close to the park gate, there are a lot of wild animals that frequently pass through camp - including elephants, monkeys, giraffes and the occasional lion. The... More

From the pickup at Mfue airport to our handover to Chikoko trails in the North of the valley the service was faultless. Friendly well informed staff a brilliant guide (Kennedy), superb food and sensational accommodation in a luxury tent by the Luangwa River. And, yes on our last night there were lions in the camp, in addition to the usual... More

My second visit to Flatdogs and I'd definitely come again! Lovely accommodation, great restaurant (couldn't fault the food I had - their Mango Curry is a favourite) and bar plus excellent game drives with informative guides (I would recommend Jonathan who was a great spotter and had lots of local knowledge). We saw Wild Dogs, lions and leopards amongst lots... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a fabulous 10 night safari stay at Flatdogs Camp in South Luangwa. The whole experience from start to finish could not have been more enjoyable. From the moment we arrived, we enjoyed a personal level of service that I doubt is bettered by more expensive camps and lodges. In fact, at every turn, the... More
