For Elephant Lovers who want to get up close
Most people love elephants and the chance to watch them in their natural habitat is a wonderful experience, whether in Africa or the Far East. If you have had the chance to ride one or get up close, you cannot be anything but impressed by their gentleness and dexterity.
However, if you want to spend some serious time getting to know elephants, then Abu Camp in Botswana is the place for you. Abu Camp, set in a pristine pocket of riverine forest, is situated in a vast private reserve of 180 000 hectares (400 000 acres) in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Each of the 6 tents has its own private elevated teak deck sculpted around one of the lofty sycomore figs or jackalberry trees with views the likes of which only the Okavango Delta can offer.
Abu Camp is unique in that it allows guests to interact with the resident elephant herd, meeting each individual and initiating a journey into the complex behaviour of the largest land mammal on Earth. Guests at Abu Camp are invited to become part of the elephant herd during their stay: watching the evening feeding, sharing the simple joy of a frolicking youngster, and accompanying them on foot as they move through the bush.
These elephant encounters provide unforgettable magical moments. And viewing wildlife from atop an elephant allows a closer approach to other animals than can be achieved when simply walking as an obvious human figure.
You can still take part in the traditional game drives to find all the wildlife that lives here. When the seasonal flood arrives, you can climb aboard a mokoro boat for another unforgettable safari.
A great way to expand your love affair with the elephants.
