Abu Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Abu Camp is a Collection Camp

Meet your inner elephant

At Abu Camp, you are invited to immerse yourself in the majestic world of the African elephant and to see the African bush and its wildlife through the eyes of the elephants – by joining the Abu herd. You will form a strong emotional bond with the herd that is both humbling and inspiring and at the same time, gain an understanding of elephant conservation – the premise on which Abu Camp is based.

Named after a very special bull elephant, Abu Camp is set in a pristine copse of riverine forest and blends in seamlessly with the magnificent surrounding hardwood trees. Looking out over a large lagoon, an imaginative use of canvas has created a unique and luxurious style of tent. Each of the six en-suite tents has its own distinctive furnishings and fittings, imparting an air of opulence in the bush, and featuring an indoor and outdoor shower, an outdoor copper bath and a plunge pool sunk into the elevated teak deck. The multi-decked lounge and dining area and a well-stocked library and study, gym and pool will keep you entertained, informed and energised while at Abu Camp.

Highlights

  • Get to know each individual elephant in the Abu Herd

As recommended on TripAdvisor

“ Abu is magical. The team understand what they are doing and deliver every day. The term "glamping" doesn't do justice to the high levels of service and luxury that are delivered by everyone there. This was our first safari experience and it exceeded our expectations. ”
