Flatdogs Camp

Flatdogs Camp

"Flat dogs review"

3 nights Arrived 22 Jul 2017
"Chongwe was a hard act to follow but we all enjoyed ourselves at Flatdogs. Guides were very knowledgable but didn't adapt their offering to suit the children,without prompting. The Crocs Nest excellent.
The only problem was that although I'd asked for the children to be with their respective parents, Crocs nest could only sleep 6- Owain and myself, plus 4, and because they couldn't move backwards and forwards between Crocs Nest and Chalet 4, where the rest of the family were, this resulted with an adult sleeping on the sofa or children a bit adrift."

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge

"Waterberry"

3 nights Arrived 25 Jul 2017
"On arrival we were shown chalets that meant that the children were planned to be on the other side of the grounds, from their parents and grandparents. Fortunately we arrived before other visitors that day, which meant that we were able to completely rearrange the accommodation plan. The staff were more than willing to sort this out but were frustrated that you hadn't advised them that the children and parents were not happy being separated. I had ask you on several occasions to ensure that the families were kept together, however on checking your emails they had no record of this request. Please ensure that in future you pass on these requests.
We loved Vic Falls, but surprised at how expensive the activities were. Viewing the Rhinos was $125 per person, for a very mediocre game drive. Owain and myself went and saw them, but it was too much for the rest of the family."
