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 become part of the herd during your stay. By the time you leave you will feel a special, emotional connection to the herd which is nothing less than humbling and rewarding, while gaining 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 pocket 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 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.

“ Besides elephants, Abu is also an amazing place for the other wildlife that is there and for its classic structure and wonderful service. To say that the staff goes up and beyond is an understatement. ”
