At Flatdogs we pride ourselves on offering an unforgettable safari experience to rival the up-market lodges, but incredibly at only a fraction of their cost! We have a range of accommodation styles to suit all needs from our unique and very special Jackal-berry Treehouse to the brand new Tented river house, ideal for families with a sense of adventure, to the cool, spacious & secure family chalets, and finally the brilliant Safari Tents, where you are surrounded by nature.
We understand that we’re all just ‘visitors’ here, so our camp is kept as natural as possible and as a result, all kinds of wild creatures find themselves quite at home here too! Birdlife is prolific in our riparian woodland habitat – there’s nothing quite like being woken by the dawn chorus with a bass line of hippo… Your safaris from Flatdogs will be led by some of the best trained safari guides in Southern Africa. Our guides are praised by guests from all over the world and have an incredibly wide range of interests, from animal behavior, to photography, trees, insects and reptiles as well as knowing all about local traditions and conservation principles in action in the area.
Flatdogs is owner-run and we are here every day to look after our guests and to chat about what they’ve seen on safari or the history of the area and challenges for conservation in the Luangwa or just generally to pass the time of day with some new-found friends! We have a flexible style here at camp and try our best to offer each guest the safari of their dreams – whether it’s spending every living moment in the park, or sometimes relaxing peacefully on the river bank, or heading into the village to visit the local community projects we are proud to be supporting in order to learn more about the people of Zambia – we aim to please!
