Activities at Abu Camp
Abu Camp - Birding
Some 380 birds reside in the area and the diversity of activities offered at Abu can lead to special sightings such as lesser jacana, pygmy goose, wattled crane, slaty egret, coppery-tailed coucal and even rosy-throated longclaw amongst others.
Abu Camp - Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open safari vehicles. These drives showcase the abundance of wildlife in the varying habitats which range from open grasslands to secluded island sanctuaries and papyrus-fringed channels.
Abu Camp - Interaction with the Abu Herd
Get to know each elephant, with activities offering an all-encompassing experience into the world of the herd, including walking with them, observing their daily life as well as viewing wildlife atop an individual and discussing conservation with local researchers.
Abu Camp - Mokoro Excursions
Season-dependent mokoro excursions offer a taste of the more conventional Okavango, however at Abu we offer mokoro with a difference – alongside elephants splashing through the water! The traditional dugout canoes are navigated by a skilled poler and offer guests a tranquil and romantic perspective of the region.
Abu Camp - Nature Walks
Walking in the bush with an experienced guide can be one of the most exciting ways of viewing game, as well as appreciating the smaller critters and plant life in and around the concession.
Abu Camp - Star Bed Experience
The ultimate immersion experience into the sensory world of the elephant can be experienced by sleeping out under the stars overlooking the elephant boma. Be lulled to sleep by the contented rumbling and low snores of the elephants below.
