Often frequented by a more mature clientele than the more adventurous properties in the country tend to attract, King's Pool is a smooth-running operation catering for clients keen for a luxurious experience with a ‘hint’ of adventure. There’s an argument to stay in the more economical accommodation within the reserve – Savuti Camp in particular, or its neighbours Selinda and Lebala. Nevertheless, if luxury is what you are after, look no further – this is as luxurious as it gets! *Please note, currently the camp is closed for a major rebuild and redesign. It's due to re-open in June 2019.*
ACCESS & LOCATION:
This camp is located in the Linyanti Reserve, a private reserve that’s home to some of the most consistent game viewing in Africa.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES AT KING'S POOL CAMP:
Designed to look over the floodplains of the Linyanti into Namibia, King's Pool is an absolutely stunning camp with a superb location and a lodge standard to match – the suites here comprise some of the most sumptuous rooms in Africa.
ACTIVITIES AT KING'S POOL CAMP:
The concession sees peak season from July through to October. However, in our experience, the only time to avoid this camp is during the rains, from January through to mid-March. At any other time of year, the game viewing is fantastic. The game-driving areas really are amazing, but if you’re looking to include big game in your itinerary, we’d advise against travelling for the first six months of the year. The mopane forest covering much of the game-driving areas is very bushy from January to early April, restricting sightings of general game, especially the cats. By June, however, this camp has started to move into peak season, providing some of the best game viewing in the country.
