Luxury Holidays At Abu Camp

Abu Camp offers guests a truly unique African safari, with privileged access to the camp's resident family elephant herd; close-up interaction with these magnificent animals provides a fascinating insight into their behaviours. There is other wildlife in abundance, including the Okavango Delta’s big cats and herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope. The main camp area is built on raised wooden decks winding around ebony and sycamore trees, with a prevailing atmosphere reminiscent of an exclusive house party. A well-stocked bar provides cocktails for post-safari sundowners and the main lounge is replete with comfortable antique furnishings and a library of field guides for guests to peruse. There are just six en suite Afro-Bedouin-style tents, featuring elevated private decks, antiques and outdoor copper baths.

Property Highlights:expand_more

Abu Camp's safari experiences can be enjoyed from land, water and air. Morning game-drives discover iconic African animals at their most active, while afternoon excursions break for sundowners before night drives back to camp, with spotlights produced to watch for predators hunting. On the water, peaceful mokoro excursions focus on the scenic beauty and often overlooked smaller plants and animals. Motorboat trips are a more frenetic introduction to the Delta's waters, while helicopter flights can be booked for a bird's-eye view of the bush.

Wildlife Encounters

Abu Camp's resident elephant herd offers guests an unrivalled opportunity to explore the bush as a member of the herd, experiencing Botswana as elephants naturally do. The unique personalities of each family member soon become clear - from playful youngsters to experienced matriarch. Activities include walking with the elephants, observing their group behaviour and participating in mud bathing, training and veterinary care, all the while learning more about elephant conservation. All of this complements the exceptional big game for which the Okavango Delta is renowned.


Pristine, remote settings and once-in-a-lifetime animal encounters make safaris inherently romantic but Abu Camp, with its peaceful and tranquil environment and magnificent setting, boasts an extra attraction for those guest who have romance in mind. For a totally memorable romantic experience, couples can stay in the elevated, open-air Star Bed for the night, providing the opportunity to sleep under a blanket of stars, right above the Elephant Boma, where the stars of the show, the elephants, sleep for the night.
