We spent 3 days at Kings Pool midway through our African Safari. The manager Jacque and his staff including Michelle and Rikki was professional and friendly. Our guide ND was fun. We saw many great sightings although this camp was the least “animal- packed” of the three camps we stayed at (Rattrays, Vumbura Plains). The room was stylish and comfortable and surprisingly cool even during afternoon break. The food was excellent. Side dishes and starters were served buffet style and the main dish was served afterwards. There were many surprises throughout our stay including a secluded breakfast before we checked out and dinner in the enclosed party area. Overall an awesome camp that is compareable to the other Wilderness Premier Camps we encountered.
- 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
