About Kings Pool Camp, Linyanti Wildlife Reserve

Kings Pool Camp is a luxurious camp set in a private concession in prime game country. The reed & papyrus swamps here are ideal for a diverse species of birds & are a magnet for game in the dry winter months. Each magnificent tent includes a four-poster bed, private plunge pool & large terrace.

Named after a Scandinavian monarch, who once camped on the banks of the nearby crescent shaped lagoon, Kings Pool Camp is truly luxurious. Accommodating up to 18 guests, each tent is complete with a private lounge area, secluded sun-deck and personal plunge-pool. The communal dining area overlooks waterways filled with hippo and herds of elephant - and all this before you've even left camp!

Lodge Details


A luxurious tented camp. King’s Pool is part of the Wilderness Safaris collection.


In northern Botswana, Kings Pool Camp is found in the Linyanti Reserve - a vast, private concession on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The camp overlooks the Linyanti River and oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon, which attracts massive herds of elephant during the dry season.

Accommodation & Facilities

The nine spacious tents are set on raised wooden decking, affording fantastic views over the lagoon.  Each canvas tent has its own private plunge pool, complete with sun loungers and a sala (terrace) for afternoon siestas. The huge four-poster beds have soft linen sheets and generously draped mosquito nets. Luxurious en-suite bathrooms include twin basins and both indoor and outdoor showers.

The bar, lounge and dining areas face out on to the hippo filled lagoon - a great place to congregate after the day’s activities. King’s Pool Camp also has a swimming pool, for cooling off from the hot afternoon sun.


Wonderful food served inside or outdoors. Most drinks are included.
