Really nice. Beautiful surroundings, with a view to the national park. Nice swimming pool. Lots of animals, especially monkeys and elephants, as well as hippos. Great location for safaris, and just a wonderful place to hang out.

Location - Just by entrance to South Luangwa National Park Property - A functional reception area then onto a separate area through to a beautiful courtyard where you can eat outside overlooking the river with a pleasant open air inside restaurant, library, little shop and a small lounge bar. The tents and lodges are well spread out with a lot... More

I stayed with a girlfriend for 3 weeks in Zambia, in the South Luangwa National Park. We stayed at bush camps and found the area to be flush with wildlife, the guide amazing, the food good and Jackalberry Treehouse to be sublime. Who could ask for more than to have a central area roofed by a Jackalberry tree canopy, open... More

We have traveled the world but we have never felt so welcomed at a hotel/camp as we did at Flatdogs Camp. The whole staff greeted our family and gave us a refreshing drink before giving us a brief tour as well as some key safety tips. We stayed in the most luxurious family tent I've ever seen - the pillows... More

We stayed just 3 nights at Flatdogs, in a couple of the luxury twin tents. We agree with what everyone else has said, so I will just mention a few highlights. Firstly, the personal hospitality from Wendy, Jamie, Jess and Adrian, backed up by great, friendly service from the staff. Secondly, brilliant guiding - thanks, Yotam! Thirdly, elephants in the...

We stayed here on the recommendation of our friends who had stayed before. We had a chalet between the four of us which included a kitchen which was well equipped but as we had a package we didn't really use it. Our package included meals and safaris and best of all for me laundry service!!!! The safaris were amazing, we... More

Ok, OK we love Flatdogs, this was our fifth visit - but the best yet! The game viewing, food, service and staff were all as superb as before. Jess and Ade, with Paolo, are great owners & managers, all the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is superb - Malama as our guide was as brilliant as... More

We stayed a bit too briefly at Flatdogs, arriving there in the early evening, spending 2 nights and leaving after a morning game drive. This was the first camp we stayed at, as part of a longer trip that included 2 other much smaller bush camps. Efficiency and service are the name of the game here. We were met by... More

Hi Nancy, thank you for such a nice review and we are very pleased that you would like to come back again. Great you loved the food and the choices we offered. It would be great for you to try the Treehouse if you do manage to come back. Our safari guides try not to "roar" around for obvious reasons... More

Flatdogs Camp, the team, the location, the amenities, everything, is just amazing. We have travelled the world extensively as a family on wildlife holidays, all I can say is I am very glad this was not our first trip as everything else pales into the background compared to our time at Flatdogs. We stayed 9 nights which I thought might... More

Great camp and setting on the river. Guides are knowlegdable. We opted for self catering chalets, as we prefer cooking our own food. Every morning the elephants surrounded our chalet with a new born calf, which was really special. The game drives are excellent and I personally rate South Luangwa as one of the best in Africa.
