Abu Camp is situated in a 160,000 hectare private concession on the western side of the Okavango Delta. Six luxurious tents overlook a swampy lagoon where the elephants squelch and the birds twitter all day long. The suites are built on raised platforms and have en suite bathrooms with a separate shower, private verandahs, luxurious mahogany four-posters or sleigh beds and hints of Victorian antiquity.
Raised walkways connect the rooms to the main lodge, which is tucked under a broad canopy of ancient ebony and fig trees. The split level teak deck winds around the riverine forest and the living areas have sumptuous lagoon-facing sofas. The camp is surrounded by lagoons, channels and open grassland and the scenery, setting and abundant and varied species of wildlife offer a spell-binding African safari.
Abu Camp is one of Wilderness Safaris' Botswana lodges, which we recommend.
