King's Pool, a stylish camp overlooking the oxbow-shaped King's Pool Lagoon, is named for Scandinavian royalty and offers its location as a historic safari base in the middle of Africa's highest density of elephants. Luxurious, spacious, and beautiful, King's Pool grants its guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
King's Pool offers nine canvas and thatch guest tents, which are well equipped with all the comforts of home. Each tent offers a large, en-suite bedroom and lounge, private plunge pool, sala, and outdoor shower.
The grounds offer a common pool, lounge, and dining area which is set on an expansive deck and offers full views of the surrounding area. An open-air kgotla (boma) is also available for fine evening dining under the stars. The area around King's Pool is home to large elephant herds which traverse the area. Wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, waterbuck, steenbok, and warthogs also call the area home.
Guests are welcome in two hides shelters, which offer close views of the elephants. Day and night game drives, guided walks, barge cruises along the Linyanti River, and catch-and-release fishing are also available on request.
Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
