Okavango Delta, Botswana
Africa’s oldest elephant camp, Abu is also one of Botswana’s most expensive, thanks to its exclusive set-up – just six A-frame tents set high on wooden decks overlooking the Okavango Delta.
Abu regularly hosts presidents, royalty and Hollywood glitterati, who come for world-class food, wine and service alongside the game drives and unique elephant-backed safaris. Big Five: Yes.
