A little woodland camp, where impala and bushbuck graze and birds drink at the waterholes.

We are privileged to have wild woodlands where an abundant supply of water attracts birds and small mammals.  Impala and bushbuck graze here, and a wide variety of birds find safety for feeding, drinking, nesting.

We created The Woodlands for birders who want peace and quiet to sit among the trees and observe, but it’s proved so popular that we have opened it to those wanting that special wilderness feeling without sacrificing comfort and luxury.

Guests have the service of a butler/groundsman/guard 24/7.  Breakfast is served on the Woodlands lounge veranda where you can also keep cool in the heat of the day, invite friends made at the lodge for a surprise drink, or just sit and watch the birds go by.   

​The Waterberry restaurant, sun decks and swimming pool, all used by Woodlanders, are a short walk down sandy paths.

Our  tents are hugely popular with guests loving the wild experience, but also loving the luxury furnishings, the fully fitted dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms and the private verandas surrounded by individual gardens.

Added to this, there is an amazing density of game, particularly along the riverine strip. Our guests often comment that ‘there’s something around every corner.

Flatdogs is the closest camp to the Mfuwe main gate of South Luangwa National Park. All our South Luangwa safari activities are led by a fully-qualified guide, and include morning drives, night drives, and walking safaris.

The professionalism and skills of our guides are what get you to the best sightings with the fewest number of humans around.

You might sit listening to the sounds of the bush, alone in the wilderness, when the guide hears an alarm call. What better way to find a leopard?

The South Luangwa is one of the few parks in Africa to allow night drives, and the guides’ knowledge of animal behaviour really pays off after dark. Knowing where predators might hunt, which other predators might be around to take advantage, and how to ensure we don’t interfere with the normal behaviour of these animals is crucial to your enjoyment.
