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.

Staying at Flatdogs Camp was one of the best experiences of my life. It is right on the river, which makes for incredible wildlife viewing. Our favourite experience of our stay was waking one morning to hippos happily muching on the grass just outside our tent. One guest at the hotel had the shock of her life when she was... More

My wife, son, daughter-in-law and 2 1/2 year old grandson spent three nights and four days at Flatdogs Camp in January. Having never been to Africa before, this was my first time to go on safari. From the moment we checked in until we checked out, it was an exceptional experience. Byron, our safari guide, was very professional and knowledgeable.... More

Where do I start? I've been to Flatdogs Camp 3 times already and a fourth trip is already booked. You are treated like one of the family. The food is amazing, the staff are brilliant and the accommodation is second to none. I've stayed with in both the luxury tents and the chalets and they are amazingly comfy. The wildlife... More
