Located in northern Botswana and forming the western border of Chobe National Park, the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is home to the luxurious Kings Pool Camp. The camp overlooks Kings Pool Lagoon, which is named for a Scandinavian king who enjoyed camping on its banks long ago. The area is comprised of wetlands, grasslands, floodplains, and islands, and displays a variety of wildlife year-round.
Each of the nine canvas and thatch tents at Kings Pool Camp features a spacious bedroom with en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, open-air pavilion and private plunge pool. The common area includes a quaint curio shop, pub, swimming pool, and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Adventurers can embark on day or night game drives, as well as cruises on the Linyanti River as the water level allows.
Wildlife viewing here is excellent. Visitors can expect to see giraffe, lion, impala, cheetah, bushbuck, roan antelope, and the especially abundant elephant population. Kings Pool Camp offers two hides from which guests can view wildlife; one of these unique hides is underground, with the lagoon waters at eye level, allowing for an up-close-and-personal view of elephant feet and zebra stripes.
