Why stay here?
Place: Set in age-old riverine forest, Abu Camp offers the extraordinary privilege of interacting with African elephants: meeting the individuals, walking with them and being part of a herd makes this a unique experience. Game drives, walks (on request) and mokoro trips take in the diversity of game in the area.
Accommodation: Abu’s six luxurious, explorer-style tents blend seamlessly into their natural surroundings. Each has a tree-shaded deck with a private plunge pool overlooking a lagoon. The main area features a well-stocked library and study; there is a gym for the energetic. Abu’s one-of-a-kind Star Bed is set over the Abu Herd’s boma and guests can spend a night here, being lulled to sleep listening to the elephants’ rumbling snores below.
Purpose: Abu Camp is based on elephant conservation, believing that its elephant herd members help raise awareness about the plight of the species as a whole, and supporting meaningful scientific research projects.
