Set in a 500 000 acre private concession of the Okavango Delta, Abu lies at the heart of a pristine wilderness and is surrounded by the open floodplains, island sanctuaries and papyrus-fringed channels that make this part of Botswana unique. The stars of the show however, are the members of Abu's resident elephant herd. Interact with these gentle giants as you walk or ride with them and then spend time feeding, bathing or even swimming with them.
Elephants are reflected everywhere at the spectacularly stylish Abu Camp, from charming ornaments placed by the baths to carved elephants on the dinner tabe, but there's plenty of the real stuff out there too. Get close to the area's abundant wildlife on dawn or late afternoon game drives, a perfect way to maximise your photographic opportunities. A guided nature walk or silent mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) ride through the channels will bring the smaller delights of Africa to your attention.
