Part owned by the wife of Paul Allen, of Microsoft fame, Abu Camp itself is one of the most luxurious camps in the country. It would stake its claim as the continent’s most impressive property.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Abu Camp is located on the edge of a lagoon in the southwest of the Okavango Delta.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Six suites look out over permanent lagoons and floodplains – all are absolutely exquisite and offer a level of accommodation found nowhere else in Botswana. The communal areas also are truly superb.
The reserve itself is still in its infancy as a photographic tourism destination, so using Abu as a stand-alone Delta camp is a mistake. However, if walking with elephants and staying in world-class accommodation is what you’re after, this camp is right up your street. Home to a rehabilitated herd of African elephants, Abu Camp offers an experience like no other. Clients have the opportunity to interact and walk with the herd, while learning about elephants from some of the most knowledgeable elephant handlers in the business.
