“Byron was a great guide; patient with all our questions and requests to stay at sightings a little longer. Another thing I love about Flatdogs is their Croc’s Nest [accommodation] and the private guiding and dining that comes with it, not to mention a private pool! “

We are very frequent visitors to Africa and have been to Flatdogs multiple times. It never fails to deliver. The management team is fantastic, starting with Jess and Adrian and continuing right through. The guides are also great and our guide Kennedy was a true professional. The highly flexible meal system, the quality of the food, the location of the camp and more makes this simple, straightforward property one of the very best experiences in all of Africa.
We have recently returned from a wonderful stay at Flatdogs Camp. From start to finish it was a great experience, on every game drive we saw at least one leopard besides a wide variety of other game. Our guides, Jonathan and Albert, made sure we were always in the heart of the action. The management and staff made us feel very welcome and well catered for and nothing was too much trouble. The quality of the food was consistently excellent over the six days we were there.
For this family – self driving and camping around Zambia – Flatdogs gave us a warm welcome, great facilities & good game viewing at a price that was top of our budget but much more economical than many self-styled “exclusive” safari lodges. We stayed in a double & single standard tent, both still ensuite and v comfortable. Low key, likeable AND luxurious given that you’re out there in one of Zambia’s top wildlife parks. Jess and Adrian and their team run a smart operation.
