Desert Rhino Camp, Damaraland, Namibia

Desert Rhino Camp is a Classic Camp

The largest free-ranging population of black rhino in Africa

Desert Rhino Camp lies amongst rolling, rocky hills of the 450 000-hectare Palmwag Concession. It consists of 8 raised Meru-style canvas tents with front verandas to take in the sweeping valley in front dotted with scattered euphorbia and ancient welwitschia plants, and the Etendeka Mountains. The comfortable tented dining and lounge area is also elevated with partially open sides offering those panoramic views. Evening meals are taken around the fire pit, in front of the lapa, and there is a swimming pool.


  • This region is remarkable for its tranquil, minimalist beauty
  • A surprising wealth of arid-adapted wildlife
  • Collaborative effort between Wilderness Safaris and the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT)
