Kings Pool – Linyati
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.
What You Could See at King's Pool
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, such as impala, lechwe, kudu, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and bushbuck, and their predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyaena. Rarer species such as sable and roan antelope also emerge from the woodlands during the dry season. Birding is spectacular.
Our Purpose at King's Pool
One of the camp’s key purposes is to ensure the continued protection of a piece of land in the jigsaw of the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area – which is pivotal for elephant and wild dog dispersal and the existence of declining species like roan and sable antelope.
Best Time to Visit Botswana
The Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe are the most popular parks in Botswana. If you’re planning to visit Botswana for the national parks of Moremi and Chobe it’s best done during the dry season and winter from March to November. The Okavango Delta can be flooded from June to October though this can also be a beautiful sight for our guests to experience.
