Experience the unspoiled wilderness of the Okavango Delta at this luxury camp
Abu Camp by Wilderness provides an extraordinary safari experience in the Okavango Delta and is settled in one of its largest and most biodiverse concessions. Home to iconic species such as African wild dog, cheetah, lion, hyena, leopard, elephant, wildebeest, and zebra, the 180.000 ha Abu Private Reserve offers an abundance of wildlife and varied natural habitats, from open grasslands, and sparkling waterways to remote Delta islands. A luxury wilderness setting, impeccable service, day or night game drives, bush walks, mokoro rides and boating excursions are complemented by unique activities such as movies under the stars. The camp is also the base for a highly successful rewilding elephant conservation project. Visitors can learn about the evolution of the Abu Herd and their integration back into the wild.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
Standard Twin/Double Tent
Each of the 6 unique luxury tents overlooks a large wildlife-filled lagoon. The tents can accommodate 2 guests and feature an indoor and outdoor shower, private plunge pool, and secluded outdoor copper bath. The contemporary lounge and dining areas blend canvas and timber, combining African artefacts with the beauty of the Okavango Delta.
