An original and exclusive wilderness experience, Desert Rhino Camp lies within the 450,000 hectare private Palmwag Concession in northern Damaraland, north-west Namibia.  

This region is remarkable for its tranquil, minimalist beauty with the Camp set amongst rolling, rocky hills boasting views across a sweeping valley dotted with euphorbia and ancient welwitschia plants and the Etendeka Mountains.

It comprises of eight large Meru-style tents with en-suite bathrooms.  The canvas tented rooms on raised decks are all generously spaced through the camp. Each tent has en-suite facilities with a separate WC and indoor shower; mosquito net, pedestal fan and tea and coffee facilities. Gravel ground walkways link the tents to the main area, a classic-style canvas, shaded open-sided lounge and dining area that extends onto the magnificent landscape providing uninterrupted desert and mountain views. There is a library and curio corner, as well as small swimming pool with sun loungers.

Safari Experience

Considering the proximity of the concession to the Skeleton Coast Park and true Namib Desert, the area holds a surprisingly high variety and density of wildlife, as well as supporting the largest free roaming population of black rhino in Africa (conservation efforts by NGO Save the Rhino Trust). Activities offered make the most of this terrain and include day nature drives, guided walks (no children under 13), full day outings with picnics, sundowner drives, hiking trails, stargazing and rhino tracking on foot or by vehicle (minimum age 16 years).
