Wilderness Safaris’ Abu Camp is set in a pristine pocket of riverine forest in a private reserve of 180 000 hectares (400 000 acres) in the Okavango Delta.
Abu Camp was where Africa’s first elephant back safaris were pioneered in the Okavango Delta 17 years ago. The imaginative use of canvas and pole creates a unique style of tent with high ceilings and wide and airy spaces, blending in flawlessly with the natural surroundings. With six en-suite accommodation units with their own distinctive furnishings and fittings impart an air of opulence. Each tent has its own private elevated teak deck.
Abu Camp tents are linked with the main lounge and dining area by a well lit pathway. The main unit’s high vaulted tenting opens out onto a tiered teak deck surrounding a giant termite mound, one of the characteristic sights of the Okavango Delta. The lounge is furnished comfortable antique furnishings and features an absorbing library of field guides and illustrated volumes. A bar provides drinks and cocktails for post-safari sundowners around a camp fire while most of the meals are taken outdoors on the deck. Nearby a sheltered plunge pool enables guests to cool off on hot days.
Abu Camp allows guests to interact with the resident elephant herd, meeting each individual and journeying into the complex herd behaviour. Guests at Abu Camp become part of the elephant herd during their stay: watching evening feeding and sharing the simple joy of a frolicking youngster. Guests accompany elephants on foot as they move through the Okavango Delta. Viewing wildlife from atop an elephant allows guests a closer approach to other animals than can be achieved when simply walking as an obvious human figure.
In addition the camp also offers morning and afternoon game drives, night drives and walks to view the abundance of fauna and flora in the area. During the seasonal floods of the Okavango Delta guests take to the waters in the mokoros.
