Abu Camp has long been famed for it’s domesticated herd of elephants, which accompany and escort you through the wildlife filled Okavango Delta, and allow you to get much closer to the wildlife.
An imaginative use of canvas and pole has created a unique style of tent which has been called Afro-Bedouin: high, wide and airy, blending in flawlessly with the natural surroundings. Each of the six en-suite accommodation units has its own distinctive furnishings and fittings, many of them antique, imparting an air of opulence amid the bush setting.

Each tent has its own private elevated deck sculpted around one of the lofty sycomore figs or jackalberry trees with vistas the likes of which only the Okavango Delta can boast.
Abu Camp, the premier elephant experience in Africa, has won acclaim from guests from all parts of the world for its unique design, secluded location, luxurious ambience and its service and food. Princes, presidents, film stars and international celebrities can all attest to the magic of Abu Camp – and, of course, its ultimate safari experience riding the trained elephants among the wild game in the area.
Named after the much-mourned and very special bull elephant, Abu was the original base camp when Randall Moore pioneered Africa’s first elephant back safaris in the Delta 20 years ago. Five years later, Elephant Back Safaris’ tender won a concession on 500,000 acres of pristine wilderness in the west of the Delta and the camp was relocated to its present site – a grove of magnificent hardwood trees on the edge of a large lagoon with a resident school of hippos.
