Flatdogs Camp

South Luangwa National Park


Flatdogs Camp Location Map

Flatdogs Camp is situated in the South Luangwa National Park, one of the last great wildlife wonders of the world. The Park is just over 9,000 square kilometers of pristine wilderness, and has been visited by wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world since its creation as a National Park in 1972.

Game drives are taken with a fully-qualified guide in 4x4 Toyota Land Cruisers. Most of the vehicles can carry 9 guests but the camp prefers to limit numbers to 6 per vehicle unless larger groups or families prefer to go out together. Between 1st June and 31st October each year (and for a few weeks either side, depending on rainfall) the camp is also able to offer walking safaris. Walks usually last for 3 to 4 hours and are commonly taken in the morning when it's cooler.

Flatdogs is also heavily involved with the local life of Mfuwe village, and guests can take an informal trip into the village to get a taste of local life and to see some of the community projects that the camp work on.

The 6 regular chalet rooms are situated in 3 separate buildings. Each chalet building has a downstairs double room with en-suite bathroom and an upstairs twin/triple room with their own bathroom, just downstairs from the bedroom. The 2 rooms in each building are completely separate with their own facilities, but can be joined through the small kitchen area if a family or groups of friends want to book both rooms.

On the banks of the Luangwa, with the best views in camp, are the 7 luxury en-suite safari tents, and there are an additional 3 standard en-suite safari tents nearby (one overlooking the lagoon and 2 looking out onto the river). 

The 2 bedroomed Jackalberry Treehouse is completely separate and private, and built around 3 live African ebony trees with unspoilt views out across a waterhole which is regularly visited by elephant and giraffe. The treehouse is available only during the dry season, from 5th April to 15th November each year. If 4 people stay in the Treehouse, a private vehicle and guide is also included.

The tented 2 bedroom Croc Nest has been set on a deck looking onto the banks of the Luangwa River. Guests staying here will also have a private guide and their own safari vehicle so they can plan their activities depending on their particular interests.
