If ever there was a luxury Botswana camp that exceeded expectations it's Kings Pool Camp, an exclusive nine-suite safari base within Botswana’s Linyanti region. Overlooking the Kings Pool Lagoon, a haven for the region’s elephant and buffalo herds, this luxurious and historic camp offers pristine, unobstructed game viewing, a “Wilderness Way” of hosting guest within and through nature, and plenty of “pinch me” moments.
Staying at Kings Pool Camp in Linyanti, Botswana feels more like staying at an ostentatious friend’s house party, but with an environmentally friendly twist. The camp is 100 percent solar powered. The team here calls guests by name and go out of their way to ensure a friendly, hospitable, fun, and sociable stay. The camp’s nine spacious and airy tented suites are the epitome of spoiled luxury, with separate bedroom and lounge areas leading out to private verandas, which are outfitted with plunge pools and outdoor day bed gazebos overlooking the hippo, elephant, and basking crocodile-filled lagoon below. The spacious en-suite bathrooms boast double showers, hand basins, and Africology bath amenities, as well as an outdoor shower with dual showerheads for romantic showers within nature.
The main lounge is the social heart of Kings Pool Camp, with a convivial bar, dining room, swimming pool, and open-air ‘kgotla’ set on expansive raised decks overlooking the river. Parts of the roof extend down to ensure privacy. Dine on plentiful, delicious cuisine, the likes of which is on par with any upscale New York City restaurant in both preparation and presentation—but with views of the resident warthog, vervet monkeys, and baboons below. What makes King’s Pool Camp really unique is the underground hide where at eye level you will see elephant feet and trunks.
Kings Pool Camp exists within the private 275,000-acre Linyanti Reserve, an area with a large and diverse wildlife concentration of elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, antelope, wild dog, and hyena. Each month offers different sightings and experiences, with December to March considered the region’s Green season. Warm up by the campfire and then set out on guided morning, afternoon, and evening game drives in open 4×4 Land Rovers. Given the exclusivity of the region, don’t be surprised if your vehicle is the only one you see along the way. Guests may also take part in nature walks, fishing, and birding, as well as romantic sunset barge cruises along the Linyanti River, sundowners in hand.
Hopping on a scenic helicopter flight to soar above the camp is a memory to be made.Request Information
