Set in one of Botswana’s most beautiful locations, and one of the world’s most valuable wetland ecosystems, Abu Camp provides a sought-after level of solitude in the Okavango Delta. Enjoying a 180,000ha private concession in the very heart of this iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site, the sophisticated camp aims to bring its guests unrivalled luxury and exclusivity along with a unique wildlife experience.
The intricate tapestry of river channels, lagoons, islands and floodplains attract a myriad of wildlife and birdlife. Follow the tracks of the Big 5 on a game drive or enjoy the scenery from a silent mokoro, a traditional canoe. You can rent an Olympus camera and/or lenses to capture all your safari moments like a pro. Another highlight is to experience the Okavango Delta from above on a microlight or helicopter flight. Furthermore, Abu Camp provides easy access to Tsodilo Hills, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring ancient rock art dating over 1,500 years back.
Overlooking a vast lagoon, the camp comprises six luxury tented suites, which are more like stylish canvas cabins featuring opulent colonial décor. Each suite features a generous deck, secluded outdoor copper bath, as well as private plunge pool. Organic elements and traditional African artefacts compliment these contemporary spaces and inspire an “old-world” safari feel. The modern split-level main area provides a perfect escape with elevated views over the riverine forest. It contains flexible lounge and dining areas, as well as a library and communications centre. A swimming pool, gym and diverse array of in-room spa treatments complete the Abu experience. With Abu Camp providing all the contemporary comforts one needs for a fulfilling safari in the Okavango Delta, step back in time to a classic safari age, where everyday is an adventure.
