Abu Camp, set in a pristine pocket of riverine forest, is situated in a vast private reserve in Botswana's Okavango Delta. Abu Camp is unique in that it allows guests to interact with the resident elephant herd, meeting each individual and initiating a journey into the complex behaviour of the largest land mammal on Earth. Guests at Abu Camp are invited to become part of the elephant herd during their stay: watching the evening feeding, sharing the simple joy of a frolicking youngster, and accompanying them on foot as they move through the bush. These elephant encounters provide unforgettable magical moments. And viewing wildlife from atop an elephant allows a closer approach to other animals than can be achieved when simply walking on foot.
Abu's six spacious and luxurious custom-designed tents are raised on teak decking with ample outdoor seating areas overlooking the delta scenery. All the tents are stylishly and individually furnished with an en suite bathroom complete with a copper or porcelain bath, flush toilet plus indoor and outdoor showers.Well-lit pathways link the Abu Camp tents with the main lounge and dining area. The lounge is replete with comfortable antique furnishings and boasts an absorbing library of field guides and illustrated volumes on the wildlife surrounding the camp, as well as throughout the Okavango Delta. A well-stocked bar provides drinks and cocktails for post-safari sundowners around a camp fire while most of the meals are taken al fresco on the deck. Nearby a secluded plunge pool enables guests to cool off and relax.
Other than interacting with the resident elephant herd ,Abu Camp also offers morning and afternoon game drives, night drives and nature walks to view the abundance of fauna and flora in the area. During the seasonal floods of the Okavango Delta, guests are invited to take to the waters in the mokoros, the traditional poled craft used in the Okavango Delta.
