DELICIOUS SAFARI CUISINE
Flatdogs is unique in many ways, one of which is definitely our restaurant!
There are no set meals or meal times here - guests can order what they’d like to eat, when they’d like to eat it. Guests are welcome to sit inside under the thatch, at our tables in the courtyard or in the garden area looking out towards the river.
Flatdogs is very active with the local community, conservation and environmental projects. Our community work is mostly directed through Project Luangwa, a charity set up by a number of lodges in the Valley to administer their community activities, focusing mostly on education and small businesses. Our environmental and conservation projects are varied in scale and content; some are based here in camp, and some span the whole Valley. See above our carbon neutral certificate and below links to Conservation South Luangwa among others.
WHY CHOOSE CROCODILES NEST?
The bird-life in the South Luangwa National Park is also exceptional, especially during the rainy summer months.
The main predators in the Luangwa Valley are lion, leopard, spotted hyena and wild dog. Lion, hyena and leopard are commonly seen with wild dog numbers on the increase, and although traditionally they used to only be seen in the rainy season.
The Crocodiles Nest is regularly visited by elephant and giraffe.
