Named for Scandinavian royalty, this luxurious and stylish camp overlooks the oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon and Linyanti River system.
Nine well-appointed rooms (including a family room) of canvas and thatch each have a large en-suite bedroom, outdoor shower and lounge. A veranda with private plunge pool and separate thatched sala soak up the views. The lounge and dining areas are set on expansive decks, and there is a pool and an open-air ‘kgotla’ (boma) for evening dining under the stars.
Activities include day and night game drives, walks (depending on qualified guide availability), and elegant boat cruises along the Linyanti River (water levels allowing) on Kings Pool’s colonial-style barge, the Queen Sylvia. In the dry season, guests can spend their siesta watching game come down to drink at the camp’s unique underground hide, where the water is at eye level. Seeing elephant feet and trunks almost within touching distance while safely inside is an experience that transcends that of an ordinary safari.

Kings Pool Camp – Night Drives
Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day.
Kings Pool Camp – Nature Walks
On request, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle.
Kings Pool Camp – Hides
There are two hides in the vicinity of Kings Pool from which to view and photograph animals and birds. One is located at the western end of camp and the other is an original underground hide, with the water at eye level.
Kings Pool Camp – Barge Cruises
Barge cruises along the Linyanti River are on offer on the colonial-style Queen Sylvia barge, generally with sundowners in hand. The river is ideal for numerous and diverse species of birds and are a magnet for game in the dry winter months. * This activity is water level and weather dependent.

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer on a catch-and-release basis. *Seasonal.
Kings Pool Camp – Birding
Birding is outstanding at Kings Pool Camp, with the Linyanti Concession an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), particularly for birds of prey like Dickinson’s kestrel and waterbirds. In summer southern carmine bee-eaters nest near camp.
Kings Pool Camp – Massage Treatments
Massages are available for you to enjoy in the privacy of your tent.
