Wilderness Air shared charter flight Maun – King’s Pool Camp
King's Pool Camp is located in The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve in the northern part of Botswana, on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The source of the Savuti Channel is within this private reserve. The camp overlooks the oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon and the Linyanti River to the north. The Linyanti area has a large wildlife resource with a wide variety of species, but it is most noted for its very large Elephant population, which can reach enormous densities during our winter months. There are good populations of Impala, Lechwe, Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Sable, Waterbuck, Buffalo and the smaller plains antelope. The major predators such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and Hyena are regularly sighted. Accommodation is in nine luxurious twin-bedded tented rooms under cool thatch, overlooking the hippo filled lagoon in front of the camp. Each of the suites has its own large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and a sala. Each en-suite bathroom has double showers, two hand basins and a separate flush toilet. There is an outdoor shower for those who prefer to shower under the stars. The main lounge, pub and dining room are under thatch, there is a swimming pool built into the deck, and an open air boma for dining under the stars. The main area is linked to the bedrooms by a raised walkway to allow animals to wander freely around the camp. Activities include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, night drives, and occasionally guided walks when the camp manager feels that it is safe to conduct walking safaris. One of the highlights of Kings Pool is its two hides. At the western end of the camp is a thatched hide overlooking the Kings Pool Lagoon. Guests can enjoy productive siesta hours watching the animals coming down to drink at the lagoon in front of camp. A real highlight is the underground hide located a kilometer or two inland from the camp, when guests sit in the hide, their eyelevel reaches just above the water level. It’s not unusual to have elephant’s feet and trunks almost within touching distance, while guests are safely inside the hide.
