What a wonderful safari experience! We spent one night there and stayed in a tent. There is no fence between wildlife and the camp. 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...

Where do I begin?...... What an adventure! An unforgettable experience from start to finish. I spent 4 wonderful nights here with my husband and two daughters – what an amazing time we had. Everyone in the camp was so friendly, helpful and hospitable and we felt very relaxed at all times. The owners Jess and Ade together with their strong... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice people, nice enough rooms and very good food. We stayed in Chalet 3b - allbeit a bit date it was very comfortable. The safari's offered were just great. Recommend asking about an all day safari. A bit pricey but really Worth it. Also do the walking safari - a very cool experience

Where to begin? The amazing staff, the phenomenal food, or of course the spectacular safaris? We never could have afforded to stay in a luxury camp inside the park, so we were a little nervous about what to expect at Flatdogs given its quite affordable price. And what we got was basically a luxury experience for a fraction of the... More

So what to say, Flatdogs camp is fantastic, the service is outstanding with attention to detail and helpfulness top of the list, nothing is too much trouble. The staff are really friendly always smiling and courteous. The food was fabulous, great selection to cater for all tastes. The wildlife ( which lets be honest is why we are there) is... More

We visited four camps in July 2016, for 4 nights each --two in Zambia and two in Zimbabwe. Of the four, Flatdogs was far and away the best overall both for animal viewing and for the camp staff. The viewing was superb. More animals and more variety of animals in South Luangwa than in any of the other parks we... More

Great location to go on safari in South Luangwa, located just across the river from the national park. 2 daily safari trips (that weren't overcrowded by lots of trucks), affordable and tasty a la carte menu, and great lodging -- definitely ask if the tree house is available! Our safari guide Jonathan was fantastic (even getting 5 wild dogs to... More

Situated on the banks of the river, and only minutes from the South Luangwa National Park gate, Flatdogs camp is a refreshing example of that best location, with expert guides, good food and service, doesn't have to cost a fortune. With this trip being our 4th back to Africa, we have visited many countries and experienced many types of accommodation... More

We just returned from a walking safari tour of Zambia and Zimbabwe. After comparing the four camps we stayed in, Flatdogs comes out on top. The owners and managers are truly caring about their guests. In some of the higher end camps, we did not have the personal attention we received at Flatdogs. In addition, we had some of the... More

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.
