There are two hides in the vicinity of Kings Pool from which to view and photograph animals and birds. One is located at the western end of camp and the other is an original underground hide, with the water at eye level.
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer on a catch-and-release basis.
Birding is outstanding at Kings Pool Camp, with the Linyanti Concession an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), particularly for birds of prey like Dickinson’s kestrel and waterbirds. In summer southern carmine bee-eaters nest near camp.
It may be trite to say it but Kings Pool Camp is genuinely worthy of royalty. This plush camp is located on the private Linyanti Game Reserve – one of the most pristine and least-visited areas in all of Botswana where you have exclusive access to three million hectares of untrammelled wilderness that includes the incredible Savute Channel. The unsurpassed accommodation overlooks Kings Pool Lagoon and the Linyanti River where game thrives and predators such as lions, African wild dogs and hyenas are spotted regularly. With two-thirds of the channel falling within the reserve and Namibia’s Caprivi Strip just across the river, this bountiful area offers discerning travellers a slice of Africa at her best.
In addition to dawn, dusk and evening game drives in a roofless 4×4, guests at Kings Pool Camp can enjoy river cruises on the Victorian-inspired barge and seclude themselves in two different hides – one sunk below ground next to a waterhole – to get the best possible encounters with game. To help preserve the environment, the entire camp runs off solar power only, and the walkways between the nine luxurious tents have been raised to allow smaller game complete access.
Kings Pool Camp has nine well-appointed tents of canvas and thatch. Each has a large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and ‘sala’. The spacious en-suite bathrooms are tiled with double showers and hand-basins – as well as an outdoor shower for those who wish to shower close to nature! The lounge, dining room and pub areas are on expansive raised decks. There is also a communal pool and an open-air ‘kgotla’ for dining under the stars.
Standard Twin Tent
Accommodation at the camp consists of nine carpeted tents of canvas and thatch that overlook Kings Pool Lagoon, which teems with wildlife. The en suite bedroom inside each tent is vast with an adjoining lounge area providing a comfortable space for relaxation under gently circling ceiling fans. The colonial decorative style exudes charm and sophistication with impeccable attention to detail, making it very easy to forget that your lavish abode is in fact a tent at all.
The en suite bathrooms have double walk-in showers and hairdryers, and your bed is warmed with a personal hot-water bottle on cooler evenings. Folding doors in the front of your suite allow the tent to completely open to the glorious lagoon below. On the private deck outside there is a plunge pool, an outside shower and a beckoning daybed shaded by a gazebo.
1 family tent consisting of 2 bedrooms each with its own bathroom and entrance; inter-leading walkway between the two bedrooms.
Enjoy a light breakfast before your morning safari and a substantial brunch on your return from the wilderness. Afternoon tea is served with a decadent choice of sweet and savoury snacks to enjoy before your afternoon game drive. If you like, skip the morning game drive, eat a substantial breakfast and take lunch instead of brunch.
Dinner is most often served under the stars on the front deck. Your meals can be enjoyed at individual tables or in a convivial group. Every meal at Kings Pool Camp is a gastronomic celebration of world flavours paired with appropriate wine. Side dishes and starters are served buffet-style and main courses in an a la carte fashion.
To the side of the main area is a small pool with sunloungers and an open sided mini gym with a few varied exercise machines.
Built into the enormous deck is also an infinity-edge plunge pool ideal for cooling off on sunny afternoons, and a more formal seating area also forms part of the front deck.
A beauty and wellness therapist is at hand if you would like to indulge in any massage or aromatherapy treatments during your stay.
