A Look at the Spectacular Wildlife at Kings Pool Camp in Botswana

I recently returned home from guiding a trip in Zimbabwe and Botswana and had some of the most amazing times! For several nights we stayed at one of my favorite properties in Botswana, Kings Pool Camp, which is actually situated in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve.

During our stay, we enjoyed amazing service from friendly and entertaining staff, as well as fantastic cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. One of the members of the group I was leading had her birthday during our trip to Botswana and was thrilled to receive a song, dance, and card from the camp staff! But that wasn’t her only birthday present! She, as well as our entire group, enjoyed fantastic game viewing with sightings of leopard (specifically, a 1-year old male), wild dog on an impala kill, lots and lots of elephants and kudu. We even saw several hippos, one of which mock charged us for five minutes! That was truly an exhilarating experience.

Below are some pictures of wildlife that we came across while at Kings Pool Camp (stay tuned for next week where I’ll share some fantastic pictures of the camp itself, as well as camp details—for now, I wanted to show you the wildlife side of this amazing property!):

That’s one angry hippo! Or maybe it’s one hungry hippo?

This warthog is standing just outside of his borough. He sleeps facing toward the hole so he can quickly escape, should a predator swing by for an unexpected visit
