Desert Rhino Camp, Namibia

In a wide valley sometimes flush with grass, Desert Rhino Camp lies in the midst of the enormous Palmwag Concession.

Here trackers patrol and protect one of the largest free-ranging populations of the Endangered desert-adapted rhino in Africa. Rhino tracking on foot and by vehicle with these dedicated men is an original and exclusive wilderness experience; others include exploring the area on full-day outings, nature drives and walks.

The camp has eight comfortable Meru-style tents and a main area that overlooks a sweeping plain that is dotted with Namibia’s national plant, the welwitschia. The campfire is where stories are told under Namibia’s star-studded skies.

Desert Rhino Camp is run in conjunction with the local community and Save the Rhino Trust, so, in addition to guests gaining amazing insight into the ecology and conservation of this area, a portion of their revenue goes to the Trust and its conservation operations.
