We first stayed at Jao Camp and did not think there was anything better. The managers were always at hand and everyone without exception was extremely helpful and friendly. The boat-trip is an absolute MUST. It is sheer heaven. Also the elegant dinner in the bush with lanterns everywhere was very romantic. The food was good and the wines of very good quality.
The rooms are very spacious but unfortunately for the plunge pool it was too cold. We did see hundreds of elefants and hippos and were very lucky to see 4 lions as well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Named for Scandinavian royalty, Kings Pool looks out over a sparkling oxbow-shaped lagoon framed with reeds and punctuated by the occasional elephant moving through the water. Expansive decks in the main area echo the natural spaces, and an open-air 'kgotla' (boma) is the perfect setting for fine dining under the stars. Two hides - one with the water (and wildlife!) literally at eye-level - are perfect places to spend your siesta: elephant feet and trunks are almost within touching distance. End the day with sundowners on the elegant, colonial-style Queen Sylvia barge as she cruises down the Linyanti River. • 9 tents • 100% solar • game drives • guided walks • sunken hide • barge cruises • catch-and-release fishing ... more less
