A ratio of four staff to each guest in camp ensures the best of attention and service. Accommodation is in six luxurious, airy tented rooms, raised on teak decking and overlooking a lagoon. They are beautifully and individually furnished with mahogany four-poster beds or antique sleigh beds, and have an en-suite bathroom with copper or porcelain baths, shower and flush toilet.
The dining area is on layered teak decking that winds its way around African Ebony and Sycamore Fig trees. An expert safari chef produces magnificent meals, catering to all tastes and dietary requirements. The lounge tent is the perfect place to relax in soft and comfortable chairs, with a well-stocked library.
Beyond the main attraction of the elephant interaction experiences, Abu’s location on a vast private concession means you are free able to enjoy a range of different safari activities in this pristine eco-system. Game drives by open vehicle during the day and at night, fascinating walking safaris and by boat and mokoro (dugout canoe) are all on offer. At additional cost, it is also possible to take exhilarating scenic helicopter flights over the reserve giving you a bird’s eye view of the entire ecosystem and an insight into its formation. The densely matted papyrus waterways, palm islands and the role of termites all take on an entirely new perspective when seen from above.
