The Linyanti is situated northeast of the Okavango Delta and northwest of the Savute marshes within Chobe National Park. The Linyanti region is, in essence, a mini "Okavango Delta" with a lot of big game. During the dry season this is, in fact, big elephant country with literally thousands in the region. The reserve is also home to many crocodile, hippo, sitatunga, lechwe, elephant, buffalo, lion and spotted hyena.

The Kwando and Linyanti Rivers form the region's border with Namibia. The Kwando River flows southeast and then meets the end of the Great Rift Valley. This causes the river to flow northeast, and at this point its name changes to the Linyanti River and later to the Chobe River, which eventually meets the Zambezi River.

Within the Linyanti-Savute concession area you have an opportunity to spend many hours watching the elephant herds and the large variety of wildlife in and around the waters of the Linyanti River. Activities include day and night game drives, boat rides on the Linyanti River, and time in the game hides.

Kings Pool has nine luxury tents, which are elevated overlooking the river and have en suite facilities. This gorgeous camp is located in a private concession area and activities include day and night game drives in open vehicles, guided walks and observing wildlife from game viewing platforms/hides situated at key locations.

Each of the new Premier bedrooms has its own large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and sala. The en suite bathroom has a shower, hand basin and a separate flush toilet. There is an outdoor shower too for those who prefer to be closer to Africa. The main lounge and dining room are under thatch and a swimming pool has been built into the deck. The main area is linked to the bedrooms by a raised walkway.
