About

About Abu Camp

At Abu Camp you are invited to immerse yourself in the majestic world of the African elephant and to become part of the herd during your stay. By the time you leave you will feel a special, emotional connection to the herd which is nothing less than humbling and rewarding, while gaining an understanding of elephant conservation, the premise on which Abu Camp is based.

Abu Camp is mainly powered by solar panels, making this lodge eco-friendly and fundamentally around conservation.

There are six luxury architect-designed tents each individually furnished with a viewing deck overlooking the lagoon and an en-suite bathroom with indoor shower plus an outdoor copper bath.

Each of the six en-suite units has its own distinctive furnishings and fittings, imparting an air of opulence in the bush. These airy tents feature an indoor and outdoor shower, an outdoor copper bath and a generous elevated teak deck. Well-lit pathways link the guest tents with the main lounge and dining area and a well-stocked library and study, gym and swimming pool will keep you entertained while at camp.

When to go

The best time to visit Botswana, if you are going to enjoy a safari, is during the dry season. The animals wear camouflage (all of them) and when the grass is short, and the trees have less foliage, it's harder for them to hide and so easier for you to spot. The dry season also means that the wildlife is forced to congregate around permanent water holes, or go for a daily drink along the river banks.
Botswana's dry season generally falls between May through October.

Important Information

Includes:
Accommodation, all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry and all local drinks - excludes premium imported brands and champagne.


Abu Camp: Note that a maximum of 10 guests can be accommodated on the elephant activity at any one time. This number is comprised of 4 guests maximum riding the elephants (2 guests on
each of two elephants) and 6 guests maximum walking alongside the elephants. If one of the elephants is pregnant or nursing a young one, this number may reduce for a period, however, the
overall elephant experience will be managed on the ground by the camp.
