Kings Pool Camp is located in The Linyanti
Wildlife Reserve, a private reserve in the Linyanti / Savuti Channel
area in the northern part of Botswana, on the western boundary of
Chobe National Park. The source of the Savuti Channel is within this
private reserve. The camp overlooks the oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon
and the Linyanti River to the north.
Kings Pool Lagoon was apparently named after a Scandinavian monarch
who spent a number of nights camping out on the banks of the lagoon,
long before the camp was built here. The Linyanti area has a large
wildlife resource with a wide variety of species, but it is most noted
for its very large Elephant population, which can reach enormous densities
during our winter months.

Kings Pool Camp Accommodation
Accommodation is probably the most luxurious in all of Botswana.
There are nine luxurious twin-bedded tented rooms under cool
thatch, overlooking the hippo filled lagoon in front of the camp.
Each of the new suites has its own large bedroom area, lounge,
private plunge pool and a sala. Each en-suite bathroom has two showers,
two hand basins and a separate flush toilet. There is an outdoor shower
for those who prefer to shower under the stars. The main lounge, pub
and dining room are under thatch, and there is a 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.
Kings Pool Camp Activities
include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, night drives, and occasionally
guided walks when the camp manager feels that it is safe to conduct
walking safaris. One of the highlights of Kings Pool is
its two hides. At the western end of the camp is a thatched hide overlooking
the Kings Pool Lagoon. Guests can enjoy productive 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 inland from the camp. when guests sit in the hide, their
eyelevel 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. There are good populations of Impala,
Lechwe, Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Sable, Waterbuck, Buffalo and the smaller
plains antelope. The major predators such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah,
Wild Dog and Hyena 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.
Kings Pool Camp only accepts children 6 yrs and over. No childcare/baby-sitters
are provided for. Children must be under the care of their parents
at all times.
Please Note: Children 6-12 yrs require the use of a Private Vehicle
and Ranger for all activities - this will be at an additional charge.
