Desert Rhino Camp is located within the Palmwag concession and offers a truly original and exclusive wilderness experience. An area of beauty and tranquility where you can track free-ranging population black rhino on foot.

Desert Rhino Camp, set in a wide valley sometimes flush with grass, has eight large Meru-style tents each with an ensuite bathroom comprising hand basin, flush toilet and shower.

A tented dining and living area offers uninterrupted views of the desert and mountains, while the extraordinary welwitschia plants dot the plain in front of camp.

Activities include rhino tracking on foot or by vehicle, full-day outings with a picnic lunch, birding, and day and night nature drives to explore this intricate ecosystem. The very dedicated guides will provide you with an informative and exciting experience.

Apart from the famous desert-adapted black rhino, the concession’s freshwater springs support healthy populations of desert-adapted elephant, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu and predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard and brown and spotted hyeana. When we last visited in Nov 2008 we were amazed at how much excellent game viewing we experienced.

The flora of this area is fascinating and we enjoyed a captivating walking safari with our guide who gave us a real insight into the scattered euphorbia, ancient welwitschia plants, scrubby vegetation and isolated clumps of trees.

The camp is run in conjunction with Save the Rhino Trust (SRT), an organisation that has been singly responsible for helping to ensure that the rare, desert adapted black rhino survived the slaughter that went on throughout other parts of Africa in the ’80s and ’90s. Today this population of black rhino is growing in numbers and the area boasts the largest concentration of rhino anywhere on the planet outside of a national park.
