Abu Camp

Abu Camp is set on the western side of the Okavango Delta, in half a million acre private concession, surrounded by open grasslands, island sanctuaries and the papyrus-fringed channels. While Abu Camp is luxurious and beautiful, the real draw are the elephants.

Abu is home to a herd of 7 habituated elephants and offers a once-in-a-lifetime elephant interaction experience; get close enough to count eyelashes and stroke trunks as you ride or walk along beside them. The elephant experience at Abu includes everything from elephant back-safaris to walking with the elephants, to watching mud bathing, training and veterinary care, to learning about local elephant research and conservation efforts.

Although the elephants are sure to be the highlight or your stay, Abu Camp’s stylish Bedouin-style tents, four poster beds and private viewing decks add to the experience. We particularly love Abu’s star-beds; spend a night on a platform under the stars and over the elephants, listening to them rumble peacefully throughout the night.

When you aren’t out with the elephants you can take advantage of the other activities Abu Camp has to offer. The game-viewing in this area is excellent and from April to October, Abu is a mixed land and water camp and mokoro excursions are added to the day and night game drives offered throughout the year.

There is no doubt that this is one of our favorite properties in the Delta and offers one of the most extraordinary animal interaction opportunities available anywhere in the world.
