King’s Pool Camp is one of 3 high end luxury lodges in this greater Linyanti region and is exceptionally good. The camp is a favourite of ours for clientele that appreciate the finer details of a luxury safari camp can offer above and beyond a traditional safari experience. As with any super luxury camp, they run the risk of prioritizing the camp and dining/hosting experience over the the wilderness and safari experience, but happily King’s Pool does not fall into this category. They have struck a fine balance between the two worlds of “safari camping: and high end luxury and service.
The main guest area, like each of the guest suites are beautiful places to hang out, with a contemporary design with smatterings of light pastel colours. The 9 guest suites are large affairs with private plunge pools all superbly designed and decorated. Perhaps the most natural high end luxury camp rooms we have come across in terms of bringing the outside – inside. All the rooms look out onto an Ox bow lake of the linyanti River and offer wonderful views over the floodplain.
This region of Linyanti is a prime location for predators, with Lion Leopard and Wild Dog being particularly prevalent. It is also home to a “permanent den site for Wild dog. Along with a full range of safari activities both on land and water there are a couple of permanent hides in which to sit and watch the huge herds of Elephant and Buffalo drink meander past.
King’s pool has flirted with the Tailormade Africa collection of camps award but has never quite made it primarily because in the past the directors felt that there was little to non of the authentic safari camp atmosphere that makes safari so unique.But all that has changed and we are very pleased to place King’s pool into this Gold Standard award.
