South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Wilderness at its finest

The South Luangwa National Park is one of the great wildlife wonders of the world. It is nine thousand square kilometres (3,475 square miles) of pristine   wilderness situated in Zambia’s Eastern Province. For many years the Luangwa Park has been visited by wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world.

Flatdogs Camp is the closest to the main Park entrance at Mfuwe Bridge. The site is spectacular riparian forest with continuous shade from winterthorn and mahogany trees along the river.  The area behind the camp is acacia-park, dambo and lagoon with an excellent population of game.  The property is     sandwiched between two elephant crossing points and is a favoured feeding area for Thornicroft’s giraffe, as well as resident puku, impala, bushbuck,       waterbuck, buffalo etc.

On the banks of the Luangwa with the best views in camp, are six Ensuite safari Tents in the shade of a stand of Mahogany trees. The tents are spacious enough for full sized beds, hanging rack for clothes and small table and lead into an open air bathroom with hot shower, flush toilet & sink.

Flatdogs conducts guided game viewing activities in the National Park, including Morning and Night Drives and Walking Safaris (during dry season).   Each drive or walk is accompanied by a fully qualified guide and for the drives a fully equipped 4×4 Vehicle, with Radios or carry handsets and are in contact with each other and the base Camp, in case of emergency. All our guides carry toolboxes, and First Aid Kits.  Most of the vehicles can carry nine guests.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
