Okavango Delta


Abu Camp Location Map

Abu Camp, set in a pristine pocket of riverine forest, is situated in a vast private reserve of 180,000 hectares in the heart of the Okavango Delta, on the edge of a large lagoon with a resident school of hippo.

The essence of the Abu Camp experience is exploring the unspoiled wilderness of the Delta. The Abu Private Reserve varies from open grasslands to secluded island sanctuaries, and papyrus-fringed channels. This variety of natural habitats allows for an abundance of wildlife. Predator sightings may include African wild dog, and cheetah, with lion sometimes heard calling at night. Hyena, and leopard are resident, so are encountered more frequently. Other iconic Okavango species regularly sighted include elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, impala, tsessebe, red lechwe, warthog, giraffe, and zebra. The birding around Widerness Abu Camp is spectacular, and particularly exciting species may include malachite kingfisher, white-browed coucal, pied kingfisher, rufous-bellied heron, and southern ground hornbill.

The camp offers morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, and guests can also walk in the bush (season and subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide) with an experienced guide which is one of the most exciting ways of viewing game, as well as appreciating the flora and the smaller mammals and insects. During the seasonal floods of the Okavango Delta, guests are invited to take to the waters in the mokoros, the traditional poled craft used in the Okavango Delta.

Abu’s 6 luxurious, explorer-style tents blend seamlessly into their natural surroundings. Each has a tree-shaded deck with a private plunge pool overlooking a lagoon.

Well-lit pathways link the tents with the main lounge and dining area. There is also a well-stocked library and study, and a small gym for the energetic. The well-stocked bar provides drinks and cocktails for post-safari sundowners around a camp fire while most of the meals are taken al fresco on the deck. Nearby a secluded pool enables guests to cool off and relax.
