There can be no more magical way of interacting with the wilderness and wildlife than walking with Elephants. At Abu Camp, guests walk with the herd into the shimmering water-colour of the Delta
In addition to the Elephant experience, guests are also encouraged to participate in some of the other fabulous activities that the Okavango Delta has to offer. Game drives in specially adapted open 4x4 Landcruisers supplement, allow guests to cover more ground in their pursuit of the Delta's wildlife.
Elephants are complete hedonists. Their stately being is animated by a streak of pure frivolity. Always unthreatened, except by drought and man, they have been able over aeons to cultivate and polish a daily routine of relaxed enjoyment, eating, bathing, meditating and going for long walks through the bush.
And that is exactly what this safari is all about. Abu Camp has elaborated a lifestyle of Elephants into a series of dreamlike adventures, simple dawn and sunset rambles or daylong outings across the floodplains in the company of Africa's finest travelling companions.
Night drives provide insight into some of Africa's nocturnal species, while gliding through the Delta's channels and floodplains in a 'mokoro' or dugout canoe offers yet another perspective on this idyllic environment. Guided walks and bird watching round off the complete Delta experience.
So, whether one wishes to commune quietly with the silence of the bush from the veranda of one's own tent, or exchange stories around the fire at the mess tent, Abu Camp in Botswana is the perfect hideaway for a Botswana vacation safari to remember and savour for ever.
