Day 5-9            FLATDOGS CAMP – 4 nights
The luxury ensuite safari tents offer you a back to nature taste of the wild, with large windows all around the tent so you can see and hear the animals feeding in camp as well as the hippopotamus honking to each other in the river in front of you!  The tents are spacious with king or twin beds, large mosquito net, electric lights and plug sockets for re-charging batteries (UK style plug sockets).  There is also a room safe and tea and coffee-making facilities.   The luxury tents have semi open ensuite bathrooms with hot shower, WC and basin.
Time to settle into camp and have some lunch, before your first afternoon safari into the South Luangwa National Park.  In the afternoons, we tend to meet for tea at 15h30, then head into the park at 16h00, ready to explore this magnificent wilderness.   Our guides take huge pride in their work, being able to identify numerous alarm calls and to track animals and try to anticipate their next move so as to position you for the best sightings.  
As the sun starts to dip towards the horizon, your guide will find a good spot to stop so you can stretch your legs and watch the sun set with a cold drink in hand… Then, once it’s nearly dark, you will carry on game-viewing with a spotlight, searching for some of our interesting nocturnal residents, like the leopard, lion, porcupine, civet, genet, owls and hyena. 
You will return to camp at around 20h00 in time for dinner and to relive your sightings with us!    In the mornings, we offer you an early breakfast of toast and cereal, tea and coffee at 05h30 before you head out at 06h00 on a morning game drive, exploring the park, taking the sightings as they come, with your guide detailing all you are seeing and adding interesting observations drawn from his years of experience in the Park.    You will head back to camp at around 10h00, in time for breakfast or a brunch/lunch type meal – whichever you prefer?  Then there is time to relax during the heat of the day, enjoying a dip in the pool perhaps or a siesta after your early start?   We can also organize walking safaris for you in the mornings if you are keen to further explore on foot in what is, after all, the home of the walking safari!    
If you are interested in village life in this area, we can also happily organize a visit to the nearby Mfuwe village, including our anti-poaching base and some of the local community projects, including schools, which we are supporting in this area.
