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. This region is marked for its tranquil, minimalist beauty, surprising wealth of arid-adapted wildlife and the largest free-roaming black rhino population in Africa.

 Set in a wide valley, accommodation at Desert Rhino Camp consists of eight raised Meru-style canvas tents with front verandas to take in the sweeping views in front dotted with scattered euphorbia and ancient welwitschia plants, and the dramatic Etendeka Mountains. The comfortable tented dining and lounge area is also elevated with partially open sides offering those panoramic views while a swimming pool provides a refreshing respite during the midday heat. Evening meals are often taken around the fire pit under the starry skies, known for their clarity.

Highlights

  • Adventurous rhino tracking activities take place daily from camp
  • A surprising wealth of arid-adapted wildlife in this harsh but beautiful land
  • Collaborative effort between Wilderness Safaris and the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT)
