This is an excellent safari camp, half hour transfer from Mfuwe airport, opposite to the South Luangwa National Park, and adjacent to the park gates. A warm welcome from one of the two excellent camp managers Jamie - got us well settled. Jamie's wife (Wendy) was also very helpful during our stay. Accommodation: We stayed in a luxury tent facing...

I love it here. The bar and restaurant are special and the staff is very friendly. I have stayed at Flatdogs several times over the last 10 years and like it very much. Like everywhere in the valley the game viewing is excellent here. Even when I do not have a room here I try to go here to eat... More

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Flatdogs, where we stayed 3 nights in both the magical Tree House and the luxurious Crocs Nest, both of which were the perfect fit for our family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. This was our best ever family holiday and Flatdogs was the perfect location. The level of service... More

This 3 night stay was part of a 5 week sojourn to Africa. This has to be one of the main highlights of the trip. The staff were so attentive and looked after us from the time we arrived until we left. The accommodation is unique with tents facing the river with elephants,hippos at liberty to swim the river and... More

We just want to say thank you to the very friendly staff and the excellent management by the camp managers: Adrian, Jessica, Jamie and Wendy. You guys are the best ! The food was excellent and we enjoyed a great 4-night... More

This was one of the greatest out of country stays of my life. The service was incredible, from the managers greetings us to the guards taking us to our lodging at night. The all inclusive meals were gourmet level with a large selection. I stayed first in a large chalet (#4), basically 3 bedrooms plus kitchen, 2 baths, with friends... More

Our family of 4 spent 3 nights here last week in the luxury of the Crocs Nest. We had a wonderful guide - Malama - who worked tirelessly to show us all the rich game life on offer at South Luangwa. Dabson accompanied us on the night drives with his powerful torch and eagle eyes (even spotting a small chameleon... More

Firstly South Luangwa is THE place to go to for top quality game viewing. Flatdogs is just outside the Game Park and the drive there is very short. The Camp is nestled along the Luangwa river and is frequently attended by elephants, hippos, giraffe and of course monkeys. The staff are all extremely professional and make you feel a part... More

We arrived late in the afternoon and saw a big elephants family bathing in the river right in front our tent. There were so many elepgants wondering around the camp. On the way to dinner, we...
