Abu Camp offers a rare African experience that showcases the magnificent wildlife and landscape of the Okavango Delta; a safari that will transform your perceptions of elephants, wilderness, and life itself.
As a guest of Abu Camp, you are invited to walk with and ride elephants, to get a glimpse of their world and learn about their lives. Becoming part of an African elephant herd is an extraordinary privilege that we seek to share with those who visit us.
Pioneered in the early 1990s, and named after a much-mourned bull elephant, Abu Camp has been running for 20 years, and as such is the original elephant safari experience in Africa.
The vast 180,000 hectare (450,000 acre) private and exclusive Abu Concession is set within the unspoilt pristine wilderness area of the Okavango Delta. As the largest inland delta on the planet, the Okavango and surrounding areas of northern Botswana hold more elephants than any other area in Africa.
Abu Camp, while never forgetting its environmental footprint, aims to provide the very best in privacy, location, accommodation and service. Allowing all who visit to absorb themselves in a whole new world, the camp is a haven of peace and tranquility, immersed within the natural rhythms of the bush.
Well-lit pathways link the camp’s main area with the guest rooms. Using the same unique high, wide and airy canvasing style throughout the camp, the six en-suite rooms exhibit their own distinctive elegance. Blending in seamlessly with the natural surroundings, each tent is graced with generous decks and an indoor and outdoor shower. The stylish furnishings and fittings – individually chosen for each room – impart an air of opulence amid the bush setting.
For reflection, relaxation and even meditation, there is a separate comfortable seating area in each tent with a writing desk and a private elevated wooden deck sculpted around the lofty fig and jackal-berry trees shading the tents. Panoramic views, the likes of which only the Okavango Delta can boast, can be appreciated from all perspectives of the room.
