Wilderness Abu

The Abu Private Reserve is the second-largest private wildlife management area in the Okavango Delta. Abu Camp overlooks an iconic Delta lagoon, and is surrounded by a remarkable mosaic of habitats and abundance of wildlife. The reserve provides both waterborne and land-based activities, showcasing the true diversity of the Okavango. This is explorer elegance at its most authentic.


Wilderness Abu Botswana Purpose

Our impact in the wild

Abu Camp provides sanctuary to the once-threatened Abu elephant herd, and is the base of a pioneering rewilding conservation project. Your stay with us helps protect these majestic, iconic creatures roaming the Delta’s floodplains, grasslands, and woodlands once again.






Abu Experiences

Collect a lifetime of rich experiences adventuring on water and land, and by air, observing the iconic animals that live in this magnificent natural marvel. Admire the elephants and feel the quiet grace of these gentle giants. Curl up on a soft cushion to watch a movie under the stars. Then sink into a steaming outdoor bath to soak in the sights and sounds of the Okavango.


Explore camps in the Okavango Delta

At 16 000 sq. km, the Okavango Delta is one of the largest inland delta systems in the world. Abu’s dramatically scenic private reserve in the Delta’s west contains a number of distinct but interwoven ecosystems, from seasonally submerged floodplains, channels and palm islands in the north-east to the dryer Kalahari Sandveld tongue in the west.
