Desert Rhino Camp

Luxury Damaraland Safari Camp at Desert Rhino Camp | Palmwag

Desert Rhino Camp is a luxury tented camp which offers accommodation in Damaraland near Palmwag in the Kunene region of Namibia. This luxury Damaraland Camp has eight comfortable en-suite Meru-style tents. Each tent is twin-bedded with two three quarter beds – mattress converters are available that transform twin beds into king-size beds. Each tent is comfortably furnished, spacious and private. The Meru style tents are positioned on raised platforms, and each has its private viewing deck and a shaded outdoor lounge area. Desert Rhino Camp is found within the Palmwag Concession in Damaraland, home to one of Africa’s largest free-ranging populations of the highly endangered desert-adapted black rhino. The surrounding area offers one of the best opportunities to view these rare and magnificent beasts. Rhino tracking is a popular activity and is available on foot and by vehicle.

Desert Rhino Camps’ main area overlooks a sweeping plain populated with the weird and wonderful Welwitschia plant. These ancient plants survive against all odds. The older specimens can reach up to 2500 years in age.

At night a campfire is lit, and guests can relax around the fire and gaze towards the never-ending milky way – the stars shine brightly due to the lack of light pollution. Rhino Camp can arrange for romantic bush dinners under the stars for guests and honeymoon couples.

The natural springs found in the Palmwag concession provide a much-needed lifeline to wildlife. You may see Gemsbok, desert-adapted elephant, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, kudu, springbok, and possibly predators on nature drives. Birdlife is prolific. Many near-endemic species are present such as the Rüppell’s Korhaan, Rosy-faced lovebirds and Benguela long-billed lark.

The Desert Rhino Camp is ideal for those travellers to Namibia seeking an exclusive and upmarket safari experience. Whether you are planning a fly-in Safari to Namibia or are considering an adventurous 4×4 self-drive tour, include Desert Rhino Camp in your itinerary.
