Desert Rhino Camp

Desert Rhino Camp is set in the private Palmwag Concession in the heart of Damaraland. Offering an original and exclusive wilderness experience, a good dose of tranquillity and the largest free-ranging population of black rhino in Africa. The camp lies amongst rolling, rocky hills with scattered euphorbia, ancient welwitschia plants, scrubby vegetation and isolated clumps of trees. There is a tranquil, minimalist beauty and a surprising amount of life in this concession including desert adapted elephants, strong populations of Hartmann's mountain zebra, giraffe, oryx, springbok and ostrich.

Review of Desert Rhino Camp

Tracy & Malcolm Fick

I give it 4 only for one reason. The drive from the pick up to the camp is very long and the drive is over rocks. I would definitely do a fly in.
