Abu Camp

Visit the iconic Abu Camp deep in the Delta

The greatest attraction at Abu Camp in the Okavango Delta is the elephant herds which will be the central focus of your stimulating Botswana safari when you book this extraordinary destination in one of our all-inclusive package deals into Africa. Abu Camp is a Botswana icon, one of Africa’s most unique safari camps with just six luxury tents and an immersion in elephant sightseeing and interactions – elephant back safaris through the Okavango Delta make your day!

Yes, Abu Camp is unique in that it promises visitors a life changing role in Africa’s premier elephant interaction experience.  It’s your once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Okavango Delta through the eyes of the herd as they accompany you into the bush – and showcase the need for holistic conservation of all elephants.

Embrace safari life in one of six luxury guest tents, with private plunge pools and viewing decks, peeping out across a lagoon from under ancient fig trees. Game drives, guided walks, and mokoro and boat excursions reveal the many wonders of this wildlife-rich Okavango Delta area. The Abu team delight in creating unique moments for guests, whether in the company of elephants or at night around a crackling campfire.

We recommend a night under the stars in the Abu Star Bed, an exclusive king-sized bed on a raised platform close to the elephant boma, so you’ll be lulled to sleep by the contented rumbling of the Abu herd below. 

We love this superb setting for a superb safari camp, in an age-old riverine forest – Abu’s six luxurious, explorer-style tents blend seamlessly into their natural surroundings. Astonishing tree-shaded decks with private plunge pools overlooking a lagoon set the scene for your relaxing stay in Botswana. The main area features a well-stocked library and study and energetic guests will be pleased about the modern gym. 

Abu Camp offers the extraordinary privilege of interacting with African elephants: meeting the individuals, walking with them and being part of a herd makes this a unique experience. Game drives, walks (on request) and mokoro trips take in the diversity of game in the area. Abu Camp is based on elephant conservation, believing that its elephant herd members help raise awareness about the plight of the species as a whole, and supporting meaningful scientific research projects.

Overview

Visit the incredible Abu Camp in the breath-taking Botswana Okavango Delta for the safari of a lifetime, to see and interact with majestic elephant herds. Guests will never forget the privilege of getting so close to these incredible creatures that their sounds and smells stay with you forever. Change your perception of elephants forever when you book a Botswana Safari at Abu Camp. 

Some guests ride two at a time on an elephant back while others walk alongside or go game viewing into the Okavango Delta’s Abu Concession. Stay in one of six exclusive tents (one with a double bed, five twin-bedded) tastefully designed and individually furnished. This elegant accommodation blends in with the ancient riverine forest and includes fantastic elephant viewing decks overlooking the lagoon. 

Close to the elephant boma, your tented chalet features an unusual outdoor copper bath, indoor shower, natural décor, ceiling fans, tea and coffee stations and small bar fridges. Plunge into the communal pool when the heat gets too much or stroll to the large canvas dining room and lounge area for a cold drink. Other guests might ensconce themselves in the Abu Camp Elephant Library complete with internet connectivity and set on a multi-level wooden deck. 

In the starry evenings guests chat around a traditional Botswana campfire lit up on the ground – share stories about elephants, the wilderness, the meaning of life. Abu Camp is designed to entice guests into the true Okavango Delta wilderness experience, absorbing the sounds, smells, textures, sightings and tastes of Africa. 

Internationally trained chefs provide creative cuisine of the highest standard, and meals – most of which are served al fresco on the deck – are superbly complemented by wine from our extensive cellar. A wide choice of international spirits and single malt whiskies are on offer. Long safari days end with a nightcap around the campfire, recounting the day’s adventures. If you love elephants and want to learn more about them, get close to them and contribute to their vital conservation, then Abu Camp is for you.
