What a great camp. The tents are large and facing the river. You never knew who would be walking around camp during the day or night. We woke one evening and watched a elephant her calf walking around our tent, and a little while later a hippo came by, it was great to see. One afternoon a troupe of baboons... More

My wife and I recently stayed 3 nights (August 2014) at Flatdogs and had a wonderful time. Jess and Ade were great hosts! Our guide Kennedy was very good. He took us on an exciting game walk where we saw our first ever Bush pig. You did not even have to leave the camp to view game. There were Elephants... More

We were more than pleasantly surprised by Flatdogs, as people at other camps had played it down and some sources suggest that it has a bad location. We found it to be delightful. The owners are genuinely concerned with their guests and show it -- they offered medication for an eye infection I had, then followed up daily to see... More

I recently stayed here for 6 nights whilst on honeymoon. My wife and I left flatdogs thrilled with our stay. We are arrived in time for our first night drive and saw lion, leopard, buffalo...pretty much everything luangwa has to offer. This then continued across every safari we did. We were amazed to see lion and leopard every day, including... More

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
