Guests of Abu Camp are invited to experience the ultimate elephant education safari with the camp's resident family herd.This unique experience allows you to view other wildlife, including herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope, at close proximity, providing many magical moments. The main Abu Camp area is built on raised wooden decks that wind around African ebony and sycamore fig trees, creating a cool, dappled environment. There are just six en suite Afro-Bedouin-style tents, individually designed and featuring elevated private decks, antiques and outdoor copper baths, while across the lagoon, the Elephant Suite is ideal for a couple or family looking for something truly special. The presiding atmosphere at the camp is that of a very exclusive house party, with its well-stocked bar providing the drinks and cocktails for post-safari sundowners and the main lounge replete with comfortable antique furnishings and a library of field guides for guests to peruse while they relax. For an amazing camp experience, guests can request to stay in the elevated open-air Star Bed for the night, allowing them the opportunity to sleep under a blanket of stars, right above the Elephant Boma, where the stars of the show, the elephants, sleep for the night.

The lounge and dining tent offers a breathtaking view over the lagoon, whilst sundowners around a traditional camp fire are followed by five-star meals in the evening.

On Safari

Getting to know the elephants at Abu Camp, on a personal level, is a rare and humbling experience. Meet each member of the herd, learn their history and begin to understand a little of what makes these grand, wise creatures what they are. Watch the interactions of the herd, how they walk silently and majestically along through the bush, trunks swinging, ears flapping - and then walk alongside them. Surrounded, as you are, by the herd, many other animals allow you to approach closer than ever. Herds of giraffe, zebra and antelope continue to graze, unconcerned by the approach of the elephant herd of which you are now an honoured part.

Also available are game-drives in open 4x4 vehicles, night-drives, guided nature walks, bird-watching (Abu boasts a list of nearly five-hundred species) or time spent drifting on the tranquil waters of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro. In the evenings, formal and informal talks will be given to enhance the elephant learning experience.
