Desert Rhino Camp
Damaraland

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.

I don't know where I'm going but I promise it won't be boring.
David Bowie

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
