4Cs Projects at Desert Rhino Camp

Desert Rhino Camp works in partnership with the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT), as well as local communities and the Palmwag Conservancy in developing responsible ecotourism and thereby supporting wildlife conservation in the area.


The Save the Rhino Trust (SRT)

In the Palmwag Concession, Wilderness Safaris works closely with the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT), a highly respected NGO almost single-handedly responsible for the preservation of desert-adapted black rhino in the area. The SRT focuses on the protection, monitoring and understanding of the local black rhino population and is funded by both donations and partnerships. Thanks to its work, population numbers have quintupled over the past 30 years. The challenge that the SRT faces now is increased poaching in the subregion.
