King’s Pool Camp is a luxury safari lodge located in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, a private reserve in the Linyanti / Savuti Channel area of Botswana, and on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. It is ideal for combining a safari holiday in Botswana with a stay at the Victoria Falls which is easy to reach from Linyanti.
One of the highlights of King’s Pool is its two viewing hides. At the western end of the camp is a thatched hide overlooking the Kings Pool lagoon. Guests can enjoy the siesta hours watching the animals coming down to drink at the lagoon in front of camp.
The real highlight, though, is the underground hide located a kilometre or two from the camp. When guests sit in the hide, their eye level reaches just above water level. It’s not unusual to have elephants feet and trunks almost within touching distance, while guests are safely inside the hide.
The Linyanti area is most noted for its very large elephant population, which can reach enormous densities during the winter months. There are good populations of lechwe, kudu, zebra, giraffe, sable, waterbuck, buffalo and the smaller plains antelope. The major predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, Wild dog and hyeana are regularly sighted. The reed and papyrus swamps are ideal for numerous and diverse species of birds and are a magnet for game in the dry winter months.
Activities include game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, night drives, boat safaris (when water levels permit) and occasionally guided walks.
Rooms at Kings Pool Camp
Accommodation is amongst the most luxurious in the whole of Botswana. There are nine luxurious twin-bedded tented rooms under cool thatch, overlooking the hippo filled lagoon. Each of the suites has its own large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and a sala. Each en-suite bathroom has a shower, two hand basins and a separate flush toilet. There is an outdoor shower for those who like to shower under the stars.
The main lounge, pub and dining room are under thatch, and there is an infinity swimming pool built into the deck. The main area is linked to the bedrooms by a raised walkway to allow animals to wander freely around the camp.
All meals and most drinks included (except premium wines, liqueurs & champagne.)
