The luxurious open tents of the King’s Pool Camp, above the Linyati River, open onto the immense wild of Chobe National Park. This deluxe campsite with its delicately contemporary style offers its guests a unique safari experience. The Carol English firm designed this elegant, refined and comfortable lodge, employing an innovative concept entirely conceived to provide visitors with the feeling of well-being and intimacy in these hostile lands. Nine spacious tents in a variety of warm colors, and impeccable service make the King’s Pool Camp a worthy representative of the prestigious Wilderness Safaris name and the perfect embodiment of the luxury safari concept. Beyond the unique safari experience (day or night) offered to guests, the King’s Pool offers an unrivalled restaurant service under the leadership of South African chef, Andre Myburg.

The Linyanti Reserve of Botswana

Isolated in the northwest region of the Okavango Delta, the 12,500 square meter private concession of Linyanti is little known to visitors. Far from the center, on the western border of the Chobe Reserve and bordered on the north by the Linyanti River, the land is very similar in appearance to the territories near the Okavango, in spite of its remote location. Vast arid lands, Mopani tree forests and great plains liable to flooding live side by side with each other. Along the banks of the large stretches of wetlands, we find willow groves, African ebony trees and “sausage trees,” all examples of the great diversity of the territory’s plant life. During the period running from July to October, one can see the incredible annual migration of zebras, which cross the Linyanti domain on their way to the more southern lands of Savuti. A great many mammal species can be seen throughout the concession including the vast majority of big cats. The reserve is also a true bird sanctuary with a multitude of bird species, one of which is the superb, rare and discreet Narina Trogon.

A royal point of view on African fauna

Embedded in the heart of this wild stretch of land, nine tents reveal their discreet and contemporary charm, dominating the high banks of the Linyanti River. The King’s Camp Pool, a Wilderness Safari Group jewel, is the embodiment, in every way, of a luxury safari. Designed on the model of an improved bush camp, the architectural work supervised by the Carol English Company, concentrated completely on the comfort and the intimacy of its guests. The experience however, is no less authentic. Built in 1995 on a former hunting ground, it was christened King’s Pool in the 1970s after King Gustave of Sweden came here with his wife, Queen Sylvia. The rooms are modern in style with warm colors that invoke the gentle African atmosphere, and with elegance and total comfort. The raised structure overlooks the river where many of the numerous elephant troupes in the area pass through. An underground shelter facing the river enables visitors to observe, from up close, the animals who come to ease their thirst. The King’s Pool offers a restaurant service under the supervision of South African Chef, Andre Myburg.

King’s Pool has been an incredible theatre of wildlife in recent years. The elephants crossing the Linyanti River give visitors the opportunity to take magnificent pictures of the troupes which can number as much as forty individuals.
