Desert Rhino Camp
Why we like it
- Desert Rhino Camp is located in the 450,000 hectare Palmwag Concession in the heart of Damaraland
- Home to the largest free-ranging population of black rhino in Africa
- Eight large traditional canvas tents all en suite with classic bucket showers
- Activities available are Rhino tracking by foot or by vehicle, nature walks and full day trips out into the wilderness area of the Palmwag concession
- A fantastic camp to comprehend the enormity of the pristine wilderness that Namibia has to offer
Tracking the elusive black rhino was an exhilarating experience and once found observing these fascinating animals in this beautiful pristine wilderness was an absolute privilege.
The whole trip worked wonderfully smoothly and we felt it was simply the best holiday we have ever been on- which is high praise as we have travelled broadly all over the world.

In conjunction with the Save the Rhino Trust, Desert Rhino Camp assists the organisation in the survival of the rare black rhino. Just eight large tents have en suite bathrooms with classic bucket showers. The tented dining area offers views of the mountains and desert. Freshwater springs support the local wildlife residents including giraffe, Hartmann's mountain zebra and of course black rhino. Bird life is also prolific and diverse with most of Namibia's endemic species present.
