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.

Abu Camp Game Viewing and Activities

Abu Camp invites guests to immerse themselves in the elephant herd, which is almost always a first-time and not-to-be-forgotten experience. The opportunity to explore the pristine environment with the herd, and get to know the personalities of each herd member, is something very special to this safari experience. Upon leaving Abu, guests feel a special, emotional connection to the herd which is nothing less than humbling and rewarding.  Shortly after arriving at camp, guests will be personally introduced to the herd, with the activities that follow over the remainder of the stay offering an all-encompassing and satisfying experience in the world of the elephant. There is, of course, the option to enjoy game drive activities in open safari vehicles in the early morning or late afternoons, which provide the best viewing and photographic opportunities.
