Flatdogs Camp

Luangwa Valley

Rating: Simple    Price from: £160 - £195 pp full board

Flatdogs Camp overview

A friendly and good value safari camp on the outskirts of South Luangwa National Park.

This is one of the cheaper places to stay to enjoy a safari n South Luangwa. Previously it was known as being very backpacky and orientated towards large groups, and we tended not to recommend it. However, things have changed in recent years, and it is now definitely worth considering.

There is good choice of accommodation types here, from luxury safari tents to chalets and a lovely treehouse. With about 20 rooms in total, this is one of the larger camps in the valley, but it remains friendly. The restaurant, bar and shop area is the hub of the place, and there is also a swimming pool to cool off in. The staff are very keen to make your stay a good one.

Two activities a day are included in your stay. Day and night game drives are available every day the camp is open, and in addition to this walking safaris are offered from about June to October. 

If you are looking for high quality and a very personal experience in a small camp, Flatdogs is not right for you. However if you want a comfortable, no frills, friendly place to stay as a base to explore South Luangwa's rich wildlife and wilderness, Flatdogs could be ideal for you.
