King's Pool Review

The centuries-old giant leadwood tree, which dominates the spacious main deck that overlooks the Linyanti River, gives you a clue about your classic, yet understated, out-of-Africa–like accommodation. Everything about this camp is on a regal scale—a modern-day tribute to the European royalty who used to hunt in this area. Old photographs of tribal leaders and Batswana maidens watch over the carved wooden furniture, comfortable wing chairs with beaded throws, inviting wooden bar with high leather-and-wood bar stools, soft furnishings in earth colors, and the open-sided dining room. There's even a small gym facing the river where you can work off some of the yummy food before taking a river cruise (only when the water is high), a guided bush walk, a fishing trip, or a visit to the sunken blind (a must in the dry season) where you're eye-level with splashing elephant feet. The massive hand-carved door of your megasize thatch and canvas–ceiling chalet leads into an entrance hall, bedroom with four-poster bed, a sitting area with earth-color couches and armchairs splashed with orange and red cushions, and a huge bathroom with his and her basins and tiled showers. Don't miss the fascinating curio shop with classy artifacts from all over Africa.
