Abu Camp offers an African experience – showcasing the magnificent wildlife and landscape of the Okavango Delta – with a difference: you are invited to walk with the elephants of the Abu herd and see the wild environs through their eyes. This is a safari that will transform your perceptions of elephants, wilderness and life itself.
You’ll become a member of an African elephant herd – an extraordinary and moving privilege that never fails to profoundly touch our guests.
Pioneered in the early 1990s, and named after a much-mourned bull elephant, Abu Camp has been running for over 20 years, and offers Africa’s premier elephant interaction experience.
The vast, exclusive Abu Concession is set within the unspoilt Okavango Delta. As the largest inland delta on the planet, the Okavango and surrounding areas of northern Botswana hold more elephants than any other area in Africa.
Abu Camp aims to provide the very best in luxury accommodation and impeccable service, whilst always remaining mindful of the environmental impact of our activities. The camp is a haven of peace and tranquillity imbued with the natural rhythms of the bush.
The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest wetland ecosystems.
It’s easy to understand why Botswana’s Okavango Delta, one of the few remaining pristine wildernesses on the African continent, was the ideal location in which to pioneer elephant safaris. Not only is the Delta rightly considered one of the most incredible wildlife sanctuaries in Africa, it also hosts the largest remaining population of elephants in the world. This vast inland delta system, clearly visible from space and which covers an area of 15 000km2 (5 800 square miles) is made up of a mosaic of river channels, lagoons, islands and floodplains.
