Abu Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Abu Camp is a Collection Camp

4Cs Projects at Abu Camp

The main premise on which Abu Camp is based is that of elephant conservation. We support meaningful scientific research projects and believe our herd members can help raise awareness about the plight of the African elephant species as a whole.


Elephants Without Borders (EWB)

Abu Camp has partnered with NGO Elephants Without Borders to lead its ambitious conservation agenda. EWB’s projects set out to use elephants as an umbrella species for understanding the future of Africa’s wildlife and the ecosystems they need to survive.

The Abu Herd and Elephant Conservation

Abu Camp’s vision is to return elephants that have spent much of their life in captivity back into the African wild. The camp was originally opened for elephants who had been trained for film or other captive situations. Since then some have joined the herd after having been found injured or lost, while others were born into the herd. Since the inception of Abu, nine elephants have been successfully reintroduced into the wild.
