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 a range of travellers.
Our view of Flatdogs Camp
We have visited Flatdogs many times over the years and, while it’s large by South Luangwa standards, its design avoids any feeling of overcrowding, and the presence of owners Jess and Ade ensures the camp retains its character. Offering competitive prices and good value for money, Flatdogs has evolved to bridge the gap between the budget and high-end camps in the area. Guests are not hosted here, so it’s likely to appeal to more independently minded travellers looking for good guiding and a relaxed atmosphere.
