We stayed 3 nights at Flatdogs. Every need was anticipated and taken care of. Friendly staff, attentive management, extremely comfortable accommodations, delicious food. And fantastic guide - he was so knowledgeable and we got to see so many animals at close range. Located right outside S. Luangwa National park entrance. Highly recommend this place!

I've just recently returned from a 5 night stay at Flatdogs, of which 3 nights were in a luxury tent, and 2 in the stunning new Croc Nest. It was our second visit to the camp, and I simply can't say enough good things about it. Jess and Ade have created a really, really special place, and have a fantastic... More

This was my first safari experience and based on chats with others, this is likely the best I'll ever experience. The accommodations are wonderful and the guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly love the park and the animals in it. Beyond the lodging and restaurant, the staff are what make this spot truly remarkable. It feels like you are visiting... More

We stayed for 4 nights in June, in a luxury safari tent. The camp is right at the entrance to South Luangwa National Park, and as wildlife doesn't take account of borders we had daily (and nightly) elephant and hippo visits, and it usually meant animal sightings before your safari jeep had even entered the park. Guides were knowledgeable and... More

My title says it all, but Ibe been coming to Flatdogs for years, and still love it. Value for what you get is excellent, and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. Excellent game-viewing right from their lounge/pool area!

This place is amazing! The staff are delightful and cannot do more for you, some even see you off and welcome you back from every single game drive!! We were staying for 7 nights for our honeymoon, and we are so so glad we didn't decide to split the trip into two. We could've stayed for weeks! The game in... More

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
