Steeped in nostalgia and named for Scandinavian royalty, newly-renovated and elegant King’s Pool overlooks the handsome oxbow lagoon of the same name in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, bordering Chobe National Park and at the crux of the important wildlife corridor that straddles Angola, Namibia, Zambia and Botswana.
This 100% solar-powered camp has nine luxurious thatch and canvas rooms, each boasting a large bedroom area and lounge leading to a veranda that soaks up the gorgeous views. The river along which King’s Pool is located hosts numerous species of birds and is a magnet for game, especially elephant, in the dry winter months.
The sumptuous main area comprises a lounge, library, dining and a convivial bar area stylishly set on expansive raised decks close to the water’s edge. There is also a pool and an open-air ‘kgotla’ for evening dining under the stars.
Game Drives: Immerse yourself in the wonders of a bush safari on morning and afternoon game drives.
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. Rarer species such as sable and roan antelope also emerge from the woodlands during the dry season. Birding is spectacular.
Night drives: Catch sight of nocturnal creatures on a night drive along the channel
Hide: Watch massive elephant feet and trunks at eye-level from the unique sunken hide.
Birding: The birding is outstanding here, from Okavango specials to mopane woodland species. Keep your binoculars close at hand!
Guided walks: Experience the wonders of nature while walking on foot in the company of an armed guide.
Scenic Helicopter flights: It’s from the air, in the Linyanti helicopter, that one can truly appreciate the wonders of the Linyanti
Barge trips: End your day with a trip on the colonial-style Queen Silvia barge along the Linyanti River (water levels dependent)
At King’s Pool, biodiversity conservation has remained the core of their purpose since opening in 1995.
With the Linyanti situated at the fulcrum of the KAZA TFCA, the camp has always understood the part that they play in the preservation of this pristine wilderness area.
Having the world’s largest elephant meta-herd and many other species passing through seasonally requires sensitive conservation initiatives that will contribute to the sustainability of wildlife as well as the area itself.
The sumptuous main area comprises a lounge, library, dining and a convivial bar area stylishly set on expansive raised decks close to the water’s edge.
Enjoy a fine dining experience overlooking the oxbow lagoon.
