The camp overlooks the Kings Pool Lagoon and the Linyanti River. The private reserve is characterized by open grasslands, Mopane and mixed terminalia woodlands, riverine forest and the now dry Savuti Channel. This camp is well-known for its herds of Elephants. The camp and its lagoon take their name from King Leopold of Sweden who honeymooned here in the mid 1900’s.

Nine well-appointed tents of canvas and thatch each have a large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and ‘sala’. The spacious en-suite bathrooms are tiled with double showers and hand-basins as well as an outdoor shower for those who wish to shower close to nature. Raised walkways allow animals to wander freely through the camp to and from the water. The lounge, dining room and pub areas are on expansive raised decks and there is a pool and an open-air ‘kgotla’ for dining under the stars.

Kings Pool Camp overlooks the Linyanti River and the oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon, apparently named after a Scandinavian monarch who spent a number of nights camping out on the banks of the lagoon, long before any camp was built here.
