After riding through the African bush on elephant back, the perfect end to the day was to sleep under the stars on the sleep out deck in the star bed.

Guest Testimonial

I count myself very fortunate to have had Chris Hamlin respond to my initial enquiry about a safari holiday. In fact, I had almost decided to book a similar trip with another tour operator, when I made the enquiry with A&K. Chris's willingness to engage and his knowledge of the destination resorts were impressive. Within a very short space of time he was able to tailor-make a family holiday to suit our budget and our trav

Abu Camp is a stunning camp, every detail has been thought of and it is a place of true luxury and discovery. The elephant experience at Abu camp involves being part of an elephant herd, meeting each elephant and beginning to understand what makes the largest land mammal tick. The elephant back safari is most notable for its natural stately pace which does not disturb other game in the wilderness, ensuring intimate close-ups of game which can be achieved no other way.


The accommodation at Abu Camp is six airy tents, each individually designed with a private deck overlooking the lagoon. Each unit is en-suite and includes an outdoor copper bath. The main area of the camp consists of a lounge, dining area, plunge pool, library and gym, the areas are split over different levels creating space and comfort. Meals are a sumptuous affair and there is an excellent choice of award winning wines on offer.

The habitats around Abu Camp are varied and different to the typical Okavango Delta scenery with open grasslands to secluded island sanctuaries and papyrus-fringed channels, allowing for an abundance of general game viewing: from giraffe, zebra, elephant, impala, tsessebe and lechwe to wildebeest, buffalo and warthog.
