• Abu Camp, Botswana



This camp offers its guests the chance to truly immerse themselves in the world of the elephant. In addition to game drives and water-based safaris, you can also walk through the bush alongside these magnificent mammals, accompanied by Abu Camp's expert elephant handlers. Get to know every member of the herd - from wise old adults to playful calves - and learn about the habits, behaviours and social structures of these remarkably intelligent animals.



A luxury tented camp. Abu Camp is part of the Wilderness Safaris collection.


Lying next to a tranquil lagoon within a 400 acre private reserve and magnificent hardwood forest, Abu Camp is a gem in the heart of the Okavango Delta. 

Accommodation & Facilities

Accommodation is in unique ‘Afro Bedouin’ canvas tents, which blend seamlessly with their surroundings. The spacious tents include unique fittings, antique furnishings and en-suite bathrooms. Each tent has its own private, elevated teak deck sculpted around a sycamore fig or jackalberry tree, with awe-inspiring views of the Okavango Delta.

Facilities include a well-stocked bar, where guests can enjoy post-safari sundowners sipped around the campfire. The comfortable lounge and dining areas are linked by well-lit paths and there is a library, containing an absorbing collection of field guides and illustrated volumes about Okavango Delta wildlife. A secluded plunge pool enables guests to cool off and relax in the hot afternoon sun.


Meals at Abu Camp are often taken al fresco on the deck. 


The focus at Abu Camp is on interacting with the camp's resident herd. Morning and afternoon game drives and night drives are also offered, as are guided nature walks. Mokoro (dugout canoe) excursions can be taken, when water levels are sufficiently high. You can also enjoy a luxury sleepout in the elephant boma back at camp!
