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

We had the pleasure of staying at the Flatdogs Camp from July 28 - August 01, 2014 and we enjoyed ever minute of it. For the first night we stayed in a chalet and it was very clean and comfortable. The next three nights we were lucky to be in the Tree house. We all loved the Tree house and... More

When my husband told me he booked us to stay at a tree house, I was immediately intrigued. If you love being up close and personal with animals, this was an amazing experience. We traveled to 4 different camps in Zambia and each was wonderful in its own way. But the tree house at Flatdogs Camp was more like a... More

Having read the previous reviews on tripadvisor we were reassured about booking direct with Flatdogs. I contacted Jess via their website and she was able to book the safari and internal flights for us direct without any hassle. Jess and Paolo were both really helpful answering all my questions by email. It was really easy to get to the Flatdogs,... More

What a fantastic experience to be surrounded by animals, and not even be in the National Park! There are many great things about Flatdogs; location, hospitality, accomodation, food... but the BEST thing is that there are no fences, and animals from the Park come to visit. Imagine our delight at seeing elephants feeding from the trees by the pool, whilst... More

Flatdogs was our second venue in Zambia. We were welcomed on arrival by Jess and Adie and they were always around to greet us after each game drive, to find out about our trip, to answer our questions and share their experiences. We stayed in the Jackalberry Treehouse - a fantastic experience, once we had got over our initial nerves... More

We read the reports of the old Flatdogs - boy, how that image has changed. The camp is well located only minutes from the main gate into the National Park and on the banks of the Luangwa. The staff help to make a place special and Flatdogs are lucky to have some real stars. For a driver to remember your... More

This was the second visit my wife and I have had to Flatdogs after spending our Honeymoon there a couple of years ago. Its honestly so hard to know where to start with how amazing this place is, but I'll do my best! Obviously, we had a great time 2 years ago at Flatdogs and did not think twice about... More

We booked our holiday with Imagine Africa. We had never booked a holiday via the internet before but the reason we did this was that the company tailored made our holiday in accordance to the number of days, the countries we wanted to visit and the price range. Imagine Africa were so efficient in e-mailing and knowing what type of... More
