Linyanti, Botswana

Wilderness King's Pool Camp

A palatial riverside camp overlooking the stunning Linyanti

Your spacious safari tent with private plunge pool

This is one of the most luxurious camps in Botswana, with nine huge canvas ‘tents’ with thatched roofs set on raised wooden platforms. Each comes equipped with a private plunge pool, four poster bed, indoor and outdoor showers.

The camp sits overlooking the Linyanti River and the oxbow lake of Wilderness King’s Pool from which it derives its name. Communal areas include a lounge dining area, bar and a shared pool. These all sit on raised decking allowing for excellent armchair game viewing of the river and lake. This part of the Linyanti borders the Chobe National Park, meaning that great numbers of elephant frequent the area during the dry months as they visit the lagoon and river. Other game is abundant too during these months including giraffe, lechwe, zebra and impala, all helping to draw the large predators; lion, leopard, cheetah and wild-dog.

As well as game drives the camp offers seasonal barge cruises along the river (dependent on the river level) , basic fishing and walking safaris (on request in advance). The camp also has two wildlife hides, excellent for close up observation of game.

The impact of your stay:

  • Every night you spend in a room contributes directly to the Children in the Wilderness programme – a dedicated initiative fostering sustainable conservation through leadership development and education for children in Botswana. This impactful programme operates eco-clubs, annual camps, and eco-mentor training, making a meaningful difference in the lives of the youth while promoting environmental stewardship.
  • In rural regions of Botswana, Wilderness has implemented a water provision programme, ensuring local communities have access to safe and clean water. This initiative addresses a fundamental need and enhances the well-being of the people in these areas.
  • Wilderness is also actively involved with Ecoexist, a non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering local farmers. Through this collaboration, practical, affordable, and effective tools are provided to deter crop-raiding and reduce conflicts with elephants. By working closely with local communities and organisations, Wilderness is making strides in promoting coexistence between humans and wildlife while addressing real-world challenges.
