The Jackal-Berry tree house is built around three live African Ebony trees (Diospyros mespiliformis) with unspoilt views out across a natural dambo and lagoon system favoured by elephant and giraffe. The tree house has three main decks which are around six feet high with wooden decks and stairways to reach the spacious sitting area and open-plan bedrooms. Each bedroom has open air en-suite facilities with hot shower, flush toilet and sink. One bedroom has a Queen-sized bed with mosquito net, the other bedroom has either two single beds or these may be pushed together if there are two couples sharing the house. The sitting deck has a sofa and two easy chairs for enjoying the view out over the dambo and watching the game which wanders past the house, oblivious to your presence. There is also a dining table and chairs should you prefer to dine alone at the house or for writing postcards or playing cards. An ice-box and honesty bar are provided in the house as well as tea and coffee making facilities. A hand-held radio is provided for guests staying at the Tree House, with which they can call for a vehicle to bring them to the restaurant or main bar or in case there is a problem of any kind. The tree-house is on mains electricity and has 3-pin square plug sockets for recharging cameras or laptops. The 2005 season looks set to break all records as far as visitors coming to the. We at Flatties added another tier to our accommodation facilities at the end of last year making our Safari Tents a semi-permanent (dry season) fixture. For those who don't need walls a roof or who arrive without their own tents and still wish to experience the Bush under canvas in the true spirit of safari, we have a new option. Situated under permanent shade from mahogany trees we have sited four classic East African Safari Tents with groundsheets, flysheets, camp-beds, mattresses and linen. The tents have an electric light and a power socket. The Safari Tent site also has private showers and toilets not shared with the rest of the campsite and closer than the main ablution block. There is also an al fresco kitchen area with lockable cupboards for the use of guests staying in the safari tents. A private dining area overlooking the elephant crossing point adds wildlife spectacle to an already exceptional experience. The Safari Tents at Flatdogs are, like all our facilities, excellent value for money. Question What have Flatdogs Camp in the. Answer Gillie and Jakeand a whole bunch of wobbly arched buildings. Somehow along her strange journey through life, Gillie acquired Jake (and therefore control over Flatdogs as well as Tribal Textiles) and also a house on the tiny Swahili s coast. If you are heading that way as part of your trip to Flatdogs or fancy a beach holiday next time please read on and contact Jake for more details on firstname.lastname@example.org. is nestled in the sandy lanes of. an attractive little fishing village of palm trees and high walled Arabic houses concealing shady courtyards adrift in waves of brilliant bougainvillea. It is situated 150 metres from the water and was built about twenty years ago by the original owners in the traditional Swahili style. Since then it has largely been used as a family holiday home with a few regular rental clients. We took possession of Jasmine on and spent two months there in October and November this year breathing some new life into her. Lamu is of course a Muslim community though if simple courtesy and respect are shown the people are gracious, helpful and friendly. Keep your beachwear for the beach and cover it with a kikoye (Kenyan sarong) when walking in the village. Security in Lamu and Shela is very good and there is virtually no theft, but please keep valuables and cash out of temptations way in Jasmine House or on your person. Jasmine House is on 220v mains electricity and the plug sockets are. 3 Pin type. However the whole island is run on one generator and there are occasional power cuts. If the power is off for more than a few minutes and candle power loses its romance Peter will start the standby generator. The house has its own sweetwater well which meets all domestic needs. Bottled water for drinking is cheaply available everywhere. Beer, wine and some spirits are available on the island and can be tracked down by Peter given some notice. However we advise that you make the most of your duty free allowance and carry your favourite tipple with you. If you do need to stay in touch with the real world whilst at Jasmine House, there is good cell phone coverage for those who roam or wish to purchase a Celtel pack for Pay as you Go top up on the Kenyan network. There is also a telephone in the house on which you may receive incoming calls from home. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION. SURPRISINGLY AFFORDABLE GROUP RATES TO. THE WHOLE HOUSE CONTACT JAKE DIRECT.

Wonderful way to spend Easter weekendNo bunnies! Aaah well, wild dogs and swimming eleph...
With over 15 years in tourism in the Luangwa, we realise that we need to cater to the hospitality needs of several different types of traveler. In the last six years we have built up a loyal following of international fly in guests who feel that our accommodation and way of doing things (not to mention price!), suits them better than 'luxury' lodges. Our guests can take their meals when they would like them, they don't have to eat dinner with a group of strangers if they'd prefer to talk to their partner or family in their native language, and NO gold taps! We also understand the needs of guests who are traveling more self-sufficiently through Africa, (having taken several extended road trips throughout Southern Eastern Africa ourselves) and our campsite is kept as naturally as possible. As a result, large numbers of game find themselves quite at home wandering through camp. Birdlife is prolific in our riparian woodland habitat - there's nothing quite like being woken under canvas by the dawn chorus; The riverfront has not been developed in an effort to minimise disturbance to the riparian ecology, but visitors remain free to sit quietly under shady trees along the riverbank and watch the game in the National Park just across the water. Safari activities are taken in the same game viewing areas as other lodges in the Luangwa, and although we are not actually inside the park we are as close as it's possible to be to it! We have decided that we would prefer more people to be able to experience the magic of the Luangwa Valley, so we keep our prices lower and attract a better class of person to enjoy our Safaris! We have made Flatdogs the only truly 'family friendly' camp in the Luangwa, and our facilities are geared towards family groups. That means we have a pool, plenty of space for children to play and a children's menu in the restaurant at children's chow times. Children are not merely tolerated at Flatdogs;.. we actually like having them! A nanny service is also available for when it's grown ups playtime. For those who enjoy the more sociable aspects of life in the bush, the Dog and Gat Bar and Restaurant offers an a la carte menu of excellent food, a great pub, wireless internet cafe, book swap and a gift shop. Satellite DSTV is installed for selective viewing of the news, sporting highlights or movies and the swimming pool is there to be dipped into when reading becomes too tiring; Many of our clients have been traveling for weeks or months and look forward to enjoying the bush with a few of the trimmings of the real world that they have been missing - however we are blessed with lots of room so you can choose to sit by the river and listen to birds if you prefer. Flatdogs is all about the freedom of choice! Although Flatdogs is recognized as a self contained empire, we have adopted the Constitution of Zambia as our rule book. Anyone found breaking the laws of Zambia will be expelled from Flatdogs! Any guest who flouts the guidelines for safety and behaviour within Flatdogs will also be shown the door, as will anyone who has been found breaking the National Park Laws whilst inside the Park. Our purpose is to provide you with a safe and enjoyable environment within which to experience the African Bush at close quarters. Those who feel they know how to handle this without our help and expertise are invited to book elsewhere and suffer the consequences. The use of illegal drugs anywhere on the property is forbidden. Any firearms are to be unloaded and left in the care of the management. All pets must be kept on a leash at all times. Management accepts no responsibility for clients' pets becoming part of the food chain or unwitting acting as a bait or lure. Now that cell phone reception has arrived in the Luangwa (of all places!), we request that guests take a 4 hour break from the modern world whilst in the bush and do not take mobile phones on any game-viewing activity. Besides being desperately annoying to other guests, who knows how your ring tone will affect that elephant peaceably walking past?!
