Flatdogs Camp

  • Description
  • Facilities
Flatdogs Camp is an excellent, affordable, owner-managed safari camp overlooking the Luangwa River in the South Luangwa National Park. With a choice between chalets, authentic African safari tents and the exclusive Jackal-berry Tree house, Flatdogs is ideal for families, couples, honeymooners, friends travelling together, first time explorers and safari addicts. Flatdogs guests can drive themselves to the camp, or else fly into Mfuwe Airport and start their safari from there.

The a la carte restaurant is unique in the safari world, allowing guests to choose their meals each day instead of being served a set menu sitting with all the other guests. Flatdogs is one of the few family- friendly camps in the Luangwa and children are welcome year round. There are comfortable family chalets, a great pool and children’s menu in the restaurant with flexible serving times and a babysitting and listening service.

The South Luangwa offers a safari experience unmatched by any other destination, allowing year-round access, open game viewing vehicles, walking safaris, and night drives. The quality of our safari-guiding is second to none, with all our professional guides passing the challenging guiding exam here to prove that they have excellent knowledge of the mammals, birds and flora found in this area.

The flexible, professional approach of the rest of the staff along with our enthusiastic and knowledgeable safari guides creates the ultimate safari experience in what is the most exciting National Park in Zambia.

Standard En-suite Safari Tent x 6

Includes: All Meals and Activities

We offer six standard en-suite safari tents which are slightly smaller than the luxury tents. The walk-in tents are pitched in private bush settings and each feature an en-suite bathroom with open-air shower, toilet and basin. The standard tents are not located on the river bank; they rather take advantage of shady trees while two of the tents look directly onto a waterhole which attracts elephant, bushbuck and giraffe. The standard tents are equipped with full beds, electric lights, a fan, and charging point for batteries. There is also a small stone verandah for enjoying the views. The standard tents do not have extra mosquito nets as they are fully gauzed on all windows and doors.

Tree House x 1

Includes: All Meals and Activities

Set in a private area away from the rest of camp, the Jackalberry Tree House is a special treat indeed. The house is made up of three joined platforms built around three mature trees. The tree house features two en-suite bedrooms with an open sitting and dining deck between them. The bedroom platforms have romantic and rustic four poster beds; one queen-size and one king-size bed which can be split into two twin beds; open front walls and uninterrupted views. Each bedroom has an open air bathroom platform down a short flight of steps with hot shower, flush toilets and basin. A large sofa, armchairs and throw cushions are spread out on the middle deck for relaxing during the heat of the day and watching the game wandering past. There is also a dining table and chairs should guests prefer to dine alone at the house or for writing postcards or playing cards. A fridge and honesty bar is provided in the tree house as well as tea and coffee-making facilities. A hand-held radio is also provided, which guests can use to call for a vehicle to bring them to the restaurant or bar, or in case there is a problem of any kind. The tree house is on mains electricity and has three-pin square plug sockets for re-charging cameras or laptops.
