This camp overlooks the Kings Pool Lagoon and the Linyanti River, and apart from the natural appeal of the area, Kings Pool also offers a comfortable outdoor lounging area, with a plunge pool on the large wooden deck – with mesmerising views of the reserve and serene lagoon of course. In each guest unit, grand en suite bathroom facilities include roomy double showers, two hand basins and a separate toilet, as well as an outside shower. A raised walkway links the main lounge, pub and dining room – where a delicious à la carte menu is served daily – with the bedrooms.
Guests are spoilt for choice as exceptional game viewing opportunities abound, with regular game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, night drives, as well as occasional walking safaris with the assistance of skilled guides. Game sightings are vast and may include wild dog, leopard, lion, baboon, kudu, impala, lechwe, hyena, sable, waterbuck, giraffe, buffalo, zebra and hippo. The reserve is especially renowned for its large elephant population.
Basking in the orange glow of a breathtaking sunset, one might easily see animals coming to drink at the lagoon. A unique aspect of Kings Pool Camp is the underground hide which is located nearby. When safely inside the hide, your eye level is just above water level, which means that guests can observe various animals coming to drink at the watering hole from a very close proximity – a rare treat that will makes a stay here even more memorable.
