Located on the edge of a permanent lagoon in a grove of towering hardwood trees, Abu Camp is one of the most luxurious and expensive camps in Botswana. For many years it was owned and sporadically run by its founder, the charismatic Randall Jay Moore. During this time it gained a reputation as the place to ride African elephants in a pristine wilderness environment, and attracted the world's glitterati. ***STOP PRESS*** We’re very pleased to say that as of 31 December 2016, Abu will no longer allow their guests to ride the Abu Herd. Their elephant programme will now focus on elephant conservation and the opportunity to spend time walking with them through the bush, observing them up close in the wild and getting to know their individual characters.
Our view of Abu Camp
With just six tented suites, Abu Camp is very exclusive, and offers high levels of service – it really is a cut above most other camps. Opulence and service aside, the camp's major attraction is riding or walking with the resident herd of habituated elephants, a unique experience which, if budget allows, is amazing. Note, however, that aside from the elephants, wildlife attractions in the Abu reserve don't match those in the better areas of the Okavango Delta.
