Watching an elephant crossing the channel, just beyond the thatched sala of your luxurious tent with its own veranda and private plunge pool, and glorious views over the beautiful lagoon, you will begin to appreciate why Kings Pool was once a private retreat for Scandinavian royalty.
Overlooking an oxbow lagoon in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, which borders Chobe National Park, this camp of just nine luxurious tents is fully powered by solar. It includes a stylish bar area set on raised decks, with an open-air 'kgotla' for outdoor evening dining and a pool to enjoy.
Decorated in the subtle blues, browns and ochres of the surrounding landscape, the camp is restful, comfortable and convivial. The team here are expert, welcoming and flexible; able to tailor your programme of activities in response to local conditions.
The Linyanti River and its lake are home to a particularly large elephant population which can swell to amazingly high numbers during the dry winter months. Delight in observing huge elephant feet and trunks at eye-level from the camp's unique sunken hide. The area is also excellent for viewing wildlife such as zebra, giraffe and buffalo, but also more exotic animals like the lechwe, kudu and impala, as well as lions, cheetah, leopards and wild dog.
Safaris and cruises
Immerse yourself in the wonders of a bush safari on morning and afternoon game drives and then unwind before dinner with an indulgent massage. Take a magical sunset cruise on the colonial-style Queen Sylvia barge along the Linyanti River and be thrilled by the excitement of an after dark safari .For an up close and slower paced way to experience the wonders of nature take a walk with an expert guide.
Kings Pool stimulates your senses, connects you with the wild and promises an unforgettable experience.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
