Named after Scandinavian royalty who camped at the water's edge, Kings Pool Lagoon attracts massive herds of elephant during the dry season. Kings Pool Camp combines such spectacular sightings with a luxurious place from which to see them. This elegant camp forges together the thrills and excitement of an African safari with royal treatment and spectacular service, creating an experience that you will never forget. Kings Pool Camp is located in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, a vast private concession in the northern part of Botswana, on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The accommodation here is luxurious, the wildlife spectacular.
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. Each room is equipped with plenty of soap, shampoo, and insect repellent to provide guests with the comforts of home. Raised walkways allow the elephants and other animals to wander freely through the Kings Pool Camp to and from the water.
Kings Pool Camp provides guest with the option to choose from a wide array of cuisine choices, from ethnic inspired African meals to the more traditional western dining options. Guest can enjoy this spectacular culinary service from the lounge, dining room or pub areas, which are built on an expansive raised deck, keeping you above the always active African ground surface.
The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve has abundant wildlife in a wide variety of species, but is most noted for its very large elephant population which can reach enormous densities during the dry winter months. Other game is abundant, such as impala, lechwe, kudu, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and bushbuck, and their predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena. Rarer species such as sable and roan antelope also emerge from the woodlands during the dry season. Apart from the simple appeal of watching the elephants at the water’s edge from the luxury of the raised decks of Kings Pool Camp, spectacular wildlife viewing is available on day and night game drives and walks.
