Welcome to Abu

  • One of Botswana’s top high end camps
  • Just 6 guest accommodations based on contemporary and colonial designs
  • Elephant back safari and interactions at the original Elephant Camp
  • High standards of service across the board including the Elephant handlers
  • Good all year game viewing

Abu is one of a handful of camps that can claim to be one of the very best in Botswana in terms of the opulence and high standard of its rooms, main area and service. It certainly commands a reassuringly expensive price tag to match. The main area and 6 guest tents are stunning and the colonial feel of the décor is done tastefully with some notes of contemporary influence.

The camp is well known throughout the world which adds to its appeal, is well marketed and resonates well with guests looking for something that was an original idea that is still regarded as the best.

The main focus of course are the Elephant back safari and close interactions as well they should be. Tailormade Africa are not personally great proponents of riding Elephants but we understand the allure to some people. What we do absolutely love and try to encourage more, are the kinds of experiences that make for longer lasting memories. Walking safari’s, hand in trunk, through the bush stopping at a nearby mud wallows and joining in the hilarious antics that come along bathing with Elephants. The camp also has an Elephant sleep out hide that overlooks the enclosure.

The full range of safari activities are also on offer and the game viewing is pretty reasonable for most of the time. However, it should be said that visiting Abu is all about the Elephants and it is important to combine Abu with a much more traditional safari camp and game viewing area.
