Located in the magical Okavango Delta, Abu Camp delights guests with its light, airy villas, close proximity to Africa's legendary wildlife, and lush surroundings. Found below ancient sycamore figs and overlooking a permanent lagoon of the Delta, Abu is the ultimate getaway for those seeking a Botswana tour.
Dappled shade, abundant wildlife, and lush greenery create the idyllic environment of Abu. Offering a sophisticated lounge and dining area, well-stocked library, spa services and attentive staff, Abu allows its guests to absorb peace after a day of exploring. The camp also offers five-star haute cuisine and pizza straight from a traditional oven. Guests stay in individually styled cavas and timber retreat houses which feature en-suite bathrooms, outdoor bath, and private shaded deck.
Highlights at Abu Camp include close interactions with the Abu elephant herd, which call the grounds their home. Guests are able to sleep out in the camp's "Star-Bed," a unique structure which allows for open air while protected by mosquito netting, while the herd slumbers below. Abu's floodplains also host herds of red lechwe, xebra, giraffe, tsessebe, hyene, leopard, and lion.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
