Abu Camp – Okavango Delta
Abu Camp is the perfect spot from which to explore the mysteries and magnificence of this ancient land.Elephant-back Safaris are based at Abu Camp on the western side of the Delta. Set in half a million acres of private concession, this tranquil shady corner of heaven is in a pristine wilderness, threaded by crystal waters. Surrounded by open grasslands, Falcon sanctuaries and the papyrus-fringed channels, which make this part of Africa unique.
Abu Camp, set deep in an ancient riverine forest, consists of six custom-built, stylishly furnished “tents” with en-suite bathrooms. Each tent has its own tree-shaded deck overlooking the lagoon, which thrives with abundant bird and animal life.
The main deck is sculpted around giant trees, creating a dappled, cool atmosphere where meals and drinks are enjoyed.
Sundowners around a traditional campfire are followed by five-star meals prepared by our expert safari chefs and served with the finest of wines. All of which is accompanied by the nocturne of the African bush: the roar of the lion, grunt of the hippo and haunting calls of the owl and nightjars.
Dress at Abu Camp is casual but in keeping with our ethos of complete harmony with our surroundings, we recommend subdued, safari-hued clothing. A sweater is advisable for alfresco evenings in the camp and on night game viewing drives.
