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 and the wilderness as you engage with the resident elephant herd on a very special level.
Abu Camp Introduction
Abu Camp was launched in the early 1990s and was named after a bull elephant that held special value to the owners. It has been running for 20 years and has claimed the title of the "original elephant safari experience" in Africa. The vast 180,000 hectare private concession is set within the unspoilt pristine wilderness area of the Okavango Delta. For those seeking the ultimate immersion experience into the serene, sensory world of the African elephant, Abu Camp now offers the opportunity to sleep out under the stars, in the new Star Bed overlooking the elephant boma. This is a unique experience that is highly recommended for avid safari-goers and elephant lovers.
Each of the six en-suite units has its own distinctive furnishings and fittings, imparting an air of opulence in the bush. These airy tents feature an indoor and outdoor shower, an outdoor copper bath and a generous elevated teak deck. Well-lit pathways link the guest tents with the main lounge and dining area and a well-stocked library and study, gym and swimming pool will keep you entertained while at camp.
