At Abu, you are invited to immerse yourself in the majestic world of the African elephant and to see the African bush and its wildlife through the eyes of the elephants – by joining the Abu Herd. Form a strong emotional bond with the herd and be both humbled and inspired as you gain a deeper understanding of elephant conservation – the premise on which Abu is based.

Named after a very special bull elephant, Abu is set in a pristine riverine forest and blends in seamlessly with the magnificent surrounding hardwood trees. Looking out over a large lagoon, an imaginative use of canvas has created a unique and luxurious style of tent. Each of the six en-suite tents has its own distinctive furnishings and fittings, imparting an air of opulence in the bush, and featuring an indoor and outdoor shower, an outdoor copper bath and a plunge pool sunk into the elevated teak deck. The multi-decked lounge and dining area and well-stocked library and study, gym and pool will keep you entertained, informed and energised while at Abu.
