Kings Pool Camp (Linyanti Wildlife Reserve) Botswana
Kings Pool Camp is located in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, bordering on the western boundary of Chobe National Park in Northern Botswana.
The reserve consists of 125,000 hectares of unspoiled wilderness. Most of the area is characterized by open grassland, riverine forest, mixed terminalia woodland and the dry Savuti Channel.
The camp overlooks the oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon and the Linyanti River to the north.
Accommodation is in 9 luxurious twin bedded tented rooms under cool thatch overlooking the Hippo filled lagoon in front of the camp.
Each of the new bedrooms has its own large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and sala. Each en suite bathroom has a shower, hand basin and a separate flush toilet.
There is an outdoor shower too for those who prefer to be closer to Africa.
Each room is built on a raised deck with wonderful views onto the Kings Pool Lagoon and its wildlife. The tents have been designed to ensure that each guest is totally comfortable and private, while at the same time offering all the atmosphere of a tent camp in Africa. Each bathroom is tiled and has a shower, toilet and hand basin. There are outside showers, too.
The main lounge, pub and dining room are under thatch and there is an open air "Kgotla" for dining under the stars.
There is a swimming pool as well as a hide on the periphery of the camp where guests can watch game safely during the midday "siesta" hours.
Game Viewing / Activities:
The area has a large wildlife resource with a wide variety of species, but it is most noted for its very large Elephant populations, which can reach enormous densities during our winter months.
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.
