      Desert Rhino Camp

      Where Black Rhinos Roam

      Desert Rhino Camp lies among rolling, rocky hills scattered with the scrubby vegetation and isolated clumps of trees of the Palmwag Concession. This region is noted for its tranquil, minimalist beauty, surprising wealth of arid-adapted wildlife and the largest free roaming black rhino population in Africa. Desert Rhino Camp functions as a collaborative effort between Wilderness Safaris and the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) - an NGO that has been has been instrumental in the preservation of these rare, desert-adapted black rhino. Having barely survived the slaughter of '80s and '90s throughout other parts of Africa, the black rhino population has doubled since the formation of the SRT. Accommodation at Desert Rhino Camp is in the form of eight Meru-style canvas tents that sleep up to 16 guests. Raised from the ground on a wooden deck, each tent features an en-suite bathroom with a hand basin, flush toilet and shower. Beds are made up with crisp, white linen and have two dark-wood bedside tables with wicker reading lamps. An extension of the deck functions as a front veranda where guests can relax in director's chairs to take in the magnificent vistas of the surrounding desert and Etendeka Mountains. Extra duvets are available for the sometimes frosty nights. The tented dining and lounge area of Desert Rhino Camp is also raised on a wooden deck in a single, open-plan tent 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, where guests can relax and socialize. Activities at Desert Rhino Camp obviously 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. Palmwag Concession's freshwater springs also support healthy populations of desert-adapted elephants, Hartmann's mountain zebra, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu and predators such as lions, cheetahs, leopards, brown and spotted hyenas. Bird life is prolific and diverse with most of Namibia's endemics present.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more
