Abu Camp offers a rare African experience that showcases the magnificent wildlife and landscape of the Okavango Delta; a safari that will transform your perceptions of elephants, wilderness, and life itself. As a guest of Abu Camp, you are invited to walk with and ride elephants, to get a glimpse of their world and learn about their lives. Becoming part of an African elephant herd is an extraordinary privilege that we seek to share with those who visit us. Pioneered in the early 1990s, and named after a much-mourned bull elephant, Abu Camp has been running for 20 years, and as such is the original elephant safari experience in Africa. The vast 180,000 hectare (450,000 acre) private and exclusive Abu Concession is set within the unspoilt pristine wilderness area of the Okavango Delta. As the largest inland delta on the planet, the Okavango and surrounding areas of northern Botswana holds more elephants than any other area in Africa. Abu Camp, while never forgetting its environmental footprint, aims to provide the very best in privacy, location, accommodation and services. Allowing all who visit to absorb themselves in a whole new world, the camp is a haven of peace and tranquility, immersed within the natural rhythms of the bush. Luxurious, elegant and organically designed, Abu Camp reopened in April 2011 after a comprehensive rebuild and refurbishment. The camp is nestled in the shade of a magnificent grove of ancient hardwood trees on the edge of a large lagoon, ringed with a backdrop of fig and jackal-berry trees. Flowing beautifully from tiered decking, an imaginative use of canvas and poles forms the mainarea of camp. Creating a modern, unique blend of sweeping lines in complete harmony with the surrounding wilderness, the lounge and dining room have been designed to complement the easy flow of nature and to accentuate a feeling of lightness during your stay at Abu Camp. Borrowing from the local African cultures, homeware, hand-woven linen fabrics, ceramic light pods, woven seagrass chairs and hand-hewn wooden pieces give the camp the elegant flair of the Okavango Delta.
