Kings Pool Camp, Linyanti, Botswana

Named for Scandinavian royalty, Kings Pool overlooks the handsome oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve bordering Chobe National Park. The camp’s nine luxurious tents (including one family unit) each boast a large bedroom area and lounge leading out onto a veranda with a private plunge pool and thatched sala from which to soak up the gorgeous views and possibly even spot elephant crossing the channel. The spacious en-suite bathrooms have double showers and hand-basins, as well as an outdoor shower for those who wish to shower ‘in’ nature! The spacious main area comprises a lounge, dining room and a convivial bar beautifully set on expansive raised decks. There is also a pool and an open-air ‘kgotla’ for evening dining under the stars.

  • A luxurious and historic safari base in the middle of Africa’s highest density of elephants
  • Wild dog and leopard are known to patrol the area, seeking its abundant antelope
  • A sundowner cruise down the Linyanti River on the Queen Sylvia is a breathtaking experience
