The Flatdogs Camp: The Gateway To South Luangwa National Park

The Flatdogs Camp is ideally located near Mfuwe main gate, the gateway to South Luangwa National Park. The Camp offers walking safaris and game drives in the South Luangwa National Park.

The South Luangwa park is famous for its walking safaris. In fact, walking safaris are known to have originated in the south Luangwa! These safaris are breathtakingly awesome as they allow you to experience the wildness of the game park on a personal level.

Furthermore, there is simply no better way of viewing the untamed African wildlife than on foot. You are welcome to start your adventure at Flatdogs!

Best Time To Be There

The dry season, which runs from April to October, is the most favorable time. Walking safaris are undertaken at the Flatdogs Camp during this period. With the shortage of water, more animals gather at the dwindling water sources. This in itself makes for a great spectacle.


The Flatdogs Camp guarantees you quality service at your disposal. On offer are comfortably furnished and luxurious guest rooms consisting of Chalet Rooms, en suite Safari Tents and the Jackalberry Tree House.

Out And About

The Camp offers a variety of activities including game viewing (guided) which can be walking Safaris, game drives (day or night), birding safaris and sunset boat cruises.
