Desert Rhino Camp
One of the most respected camps in Namibia, Desert Rhino Camp offers guests an exclusive and comfortable base from which to witness the free-roaming population of desert-adapted Black Rhino of the Palmway Concession, which is monitored by the Save the Rhino Trust. This genuine conservation partnership with such a vital NGO means guests can go rhino tracking on foot and by vehicle with Save the Rhino Trust trackers. And with a proportion of Desert Rhino Camp’s revenue going to the Save the Rhino Trust and its conservation activities, guest are contributing to its continued conservation efforts by staying here.
Dotted with extraordinary euphorbia and ancient welwitschia plants, this small, luxurious tented camp is set in Damaraland’s remote and desolate desert. It promises an authentic safari experience, expert personal service and high standards of living throughout. There are just eight comfortable Meru-style raised tents with twin beds and en-suite bathrooms featuring copper twin basins, solar heated showers and flush toilet. There is a tented dining / living area featuring a large dining table for guests to eat together and a plunge pool with uninterrupted views of these rolling rocky hills – an area loved by guests for its minimalist tranquillity and haunting beauty.
In addition to the rhino, this harsh but beautiful land is home to a healthy population of Hartmann's mountain zebra, desert-adapted elephant, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu as well as predators like lion, cheetah, leopard, and brown and spotted hyaena. Birdlife is prolific and diverse featuring most of Namibia's endemic birdlife – lout for Rüppell's korhaan, Benguela long-billed lark and possibly Herero chat and Verreauxs' eagle. Experience the unforgettable wildlife of this area on foot and in vehicles, guided walks, nature drives and sundowner drives.
