After 3 days at Vumbura Plains in the Delta, we flew over to Kings Pool. A totally different landscape and different feel to the delta but none the less beautiful. The camp is more "african" in style to the other one. Rooms have a great view across the river and with the hippos, we also had the resident male lion of the area roar during 2 nights of our stayed, along with the hippos and elephants trumpeting - that was special to hear - the real noises of Africa. Elephant encounters are superb, game is excellent particularly for seeing the predetors. Guides are great, local Batswana staff are wonderful - we'd be happy to return again.
- 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
