The location of this place is just unbelievable...You're overlooking the river, can watch hippos, elephants crossing, alligators...At night you are part of nature with amazing noises...We had some spectacular wild life experience, especially thanks to our guide who turned out to be the most knowledgable we ever had. You may argue that kings pool is a bit outworn meanwhile-however it... More

Our first experience with Wilderness Safaris, and it was an excellent one. Management at the camp is outstanding, with food and accommodation the highlights. Staff was friendly and competent. Family friendly without lowering the style. The views over the river when the sun was setting is one for the memory box! We will for sure go again!

We had a great holiday here. The rooms, layout, guides, food, bar, service, wildlife viewing were all of a very high standard. The camp is highly recommended. One only realises the quality of the place when one visits other camps of a similar profile.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Named for Scandinavian royalty, Kings Pool looks out over a sparkling oxbow-shaped lagoon framed with reeds and punctuated by the occasional elephant moving through the water. Expansive decks in the main area echo the natural spaces, and an open-air 'kgotla' (boma) is the perfect setting for fine dining under the stars. Two hides - one with the water (and wildlife!) literally at eye-level - are perfect places to spend your siesta: elephant feet and trunks are almost within touching distance. End the day with sundowners on the elegant, colonial-style Queen Sylvia barge as she cruises down the Linyanti River. • 9 tents • 100% solar • game drives • guided walks • sunken hide • barge cruises • catch-and-release fishing ... more   less
