Located in the Mfuwe area, just outside the gates into South Luangwa National Park, Flatdogs Camp was once known as an excellent backpackers’ option and a really low-cost base for visiting the area. Whilst trying hard to retain its focus on value, its standards have improved considerably over recent years; it is now a comfortable safari camp that should appeal to many different types of traveller.
Our view of Flatdogs Camp
We have visited Flatdogs many times over the years and, while it is large by South Luangwa standards, it is competitively priced and offers very good value for money. We think it has evolved to bridge the gap successfully between the area’s more basic and higher-end safari camps. Guests are not 'hosted' here, so it is likely to appeal to the more independent-minded traveller looking for the excellent guiding, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere that we have experienced.
