Activities at Kings Pool
Kings Pool Camp - Barge Cruises
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. * This activity is water level and weather dependent.
Kings Pool Camp - 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.
Kings Pool Camp - Fishing*
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer on a catch-and-release basis. *Seasonal.
Kings Pool Camp - 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.
