Welcome to Flatdogs Camp

South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Flatdogs Camp is on the border of the South Luangwa National Park,  one of the last great wildlife wonders of the world. It is nine thousand square kilometers (3,475 square miles) of pristine wilderness and Flatdogs offers the perfect gateway. The South Luangwa NP has been visited by wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world since its creation in 1972. The Luangwa offers a safari experience unmatched by any other destination, allowing year round access, open game viewing vehicles, walking safaris and night game drives. However, due to the remoteness of the Park and the difficulties of operating so far from anywhere, the cost of a safari has been prohibitive to many people. Flatdogs Camp, the closest camp the main gate of the park, is now here and the Luangwa Valley and all of its magic is open to everyone! See how your stay here will help the local communities.

In case you are still not convinced, here is what some of our customers are saying…

I stayed here with a friend in June for a few nights. I’d done research before hand and understood this to be the best “budget” safari in Zambia. First thing to say is, nothing about this place is budget. It’s absolutely stunning. From the rooms, the camp, the food… and most importantly the walks and drives… The experience completely exceeded expectations. – Simon T, Hathersage, United Kingdom

Our guide (Malama) was superb. His knowledge and expertise in finding the animals, telling us all about them (and about the birds and the trees and the shrubs) and answering all our questions was extremely impressive.

Overall, we had a superb and very memorable stay at Flatdogs Camp. Every member of staff was courteous, very friendly and extremely helpful, and the wildlife was awesome. I can’t recommend Flatdogs Camp highly enough – mikeI2741AQ, Swindon, UK
