Desert Rhino Camp: Our View

Desert Rhino Camp lies amongst rolling, rocky hills with scattered euphorbia, ancient welwitschia plants, scrubby vegetation, and isolated clumps of trees all situated onthe 450 000-hectare Palmwag Concession. This region is marked for its tranquil, minimalist beauty, surprising wealth of arid-adapted wildlife and the largest free roamingdesert-adaptedblack rhino population in Africa.

Set in a wide valley sometimes flush with grass, accommodation at Desert Rhino Camp is in the form of eight Meru-style canvas tents that sleep up to sixteen guests. An extension of the deck functions as a front verandah. The tented restaurant and lounge area of Desert Rhino Camp is also raised on a wooden deck in a single tent which is open plan and has partially open sides offering panoramic views. To one side there are couches and to the other a large, simple dining table. Evening meals are taken around the fire pit, in front of the Lapa, where guests can relax and socialize.

Activities at Desert Rhino Camp include rhino tracking on foot or by vehicle. Other 4x4 outings are geared at exploring this vast, miraculous ecosystem with some of the most knowledgeable guides in Namibia.
