At Kings Pool water-based activities on the Linyanti River are primarily offered on the Queen Sylvia barge. The best time to step aboard is at sunset when the landscape is engulfed in a fiery glow. It is one of the most peaceful ways to engage in your surroundings while sipping on a sundowner and capturing those money shots of African fish eagles, and herds of marauding elephant families.
You can also embark on guided nature walks at Kings Pool. These come highly recommended for birding enthusiasts, especially as the reserve is an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA). These walks are seasonal, so if you’re interested in requesting one, be sure to ask your Siyabona Botswana Specialists before you finalise your booking.
Day and night game drives depart from Kings Pool via 5-6 seater open 4x4 Land Cruisers. Led by expert guides, you can expect to encounter anything from a pride of lions to lone leopards and even the incredibly rare African wild dog. During the early mornings and late evenings hot water bottles, blankets and lined ponchos are provided to keep the cold at bay.
At Kings Pool you can also try your hand at fishing (on a catch and release basis), keep in mind that fishing is prohibited during January and February for fish breeding purposes. You can also take to the skies on a private helicopter flight by request. The scenic flight ranges in duration from 30, 45 to 60 minutes.
