Flatdogs Camp


  • Flatdogs Camp,


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.

What can one say about paradise? Elephants wandered through the camp and could be heard walking around at night. The ever-amusing hippo conversations sounded just outside, although were probably some way away and impala and bushbuck grazed close by. Animals abounded within the park - I've never seen so many on game drives - and on the way there. The driver I had throughout was very informative and excellent at finding places to watch animals. We saw lions and leopards, lots of birds and the night drives were very productive, including sightings of genets, mongooses, and a leopard stalking. The accommodation, food and facilities were excellent, and management and staff all really helpful. Another day, and I could have joined a vehicle going for a whole day drive, to a different part of the park; I hadn't realised that could have been an option but it would be a great thing to do.
