The welcoming, elevated lounge and dining areas make imaginative use of canvas and timber to create contemporary spaces that are in complete harmony with the surrounding wilderness and offer a wonderful vantage point. Organic elements and traditional African artefacts reinforce the sense of place and lend Abu something of the natural flair and exuberance of the Okavango Delta. A fascinating library acts as a repository of knowledge on elephant behaviour and conservation, with a swimming pool, gym and diverse array of in-room spa treatments completing the Abu offering.
