Surrounded by open grasslands, island sanctuaries and the papyrus fringed channels that make this part of Africa unique, Abu Camp is the perfect spot from which to explore the mysteries of this ancient land. The atmosphere is completely unique; the feeling is a juxtaposition of serenity and exhilaration, and the untamed and unrivalled game viewing perspective is beyond that experienced anywhere else in Africa. Interacting with African elephants amidst such magnificent scenery is an absolutely unforgettable experience and available only to the very privileged few. You will form a strong emotional bond with the herd that is both humbling and inspiring and at the same time, gain an understanding of elephant conservation — the premise on which the camp is based.
The star bed experience is an absolute must for elephant lovers. When else will you ever get the chance to spend the night with an elephant herd? They may not be the quietest (or best smelling) of sleeping companions, but as the star bed at Abu Camp is just outside the elephant boma, you will have enough space and privacy for yourself. After all the excitement of the day — walking with the herd, interacting with the main characters, playing with an perhaps even feeding the elephant — you will undoubtedly enjoy a deep night’s sleep.
Guests who opt for a night in the Abu Camp star bed will be impressed by how luxurious the experience is. After dinner, you will be escorted to the elephant boma and will ascend the star bed platform, where you will find your king-size bed. On the tier below, there’s a fully equipped bathroom with a toilet, sink, and shower with everything you need for the night. A ratio of four staff to each guest at Abu Camp ensures the best of attention and service, and the sound of the elephant herd will be your unparalleled lullaby.
