Kings Pool Camp is a Premier Camp

Things to do at Kings Pool Camp

Thanks to a range of habitats, Kings Pool offers spectacular wildlife viewing, whether on land or water, while the luxuries of the camp itself round off the safari experience.

Game Drives

Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of seven people, allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.

Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day.

Nature Walks

On request, and dependent on the availability of walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle.

Seasonal Barge Cruises

Seasonal barge cruises along the Linyanti River are on offer on the colonial-style Queen Sylvia barge, generally with sundowners in hand. The river is ideal for numerous and diverse species of birds and are a magnet for game in the dry winter months.

Hides

There are two hides in the vicinity of Kings Pool from which to view and photograph animals and birds. One is located at the western end of camp and the other is an original underground hide, with the water at eye level.

Fishing*

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer on a catch-and-release basis. *Seasonal.

Birding

Birding is outstanding at Kings Pool Camp, with the Linyanti Concession an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), particularly for birds of prey like Dickinson's kestrel and waterbirds. In summer southern carmine bee-eaters nest near camp.

Massage Treatments

Massages are available for you to enjoy in the privacy of your tent.
