Each of the six private en suite tents are Afro-Bedouin in style and feature comfy armchairs, beautiful quilts and tree-shaded wooden decks overlooking a wildlife-packed lagoon. Additionally, each one boasts a viewing deck overlooking the lagoon, an en-suite bathroom with an indoor shower as well as an outdoor copper bath, a hairdryer and bathrobes, ceiling fans, tea and coffee-making facilities and a small bar fridge, an electronic safe, multi-plugs available for charging camera and video equipment and laptops. There is a daily maid cleaning service.
For total seclusion, the private villa offers its own pool, butler, chef and guide.
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.
Children over 6 years old only are allowed at the camp. However, families with children who are younger than this can be accommodated in the Elephant Suite or if the entire camp is booked by one party.
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.
