Damaraland & the Northwest camps - Desert Rhino Camp
Desert Rhino Camp
Desert Rhino Camp does what it says on the tin. Within a sanctuary to the largest free-roaming population of desert-adapted black rhino left in Africa, this is possibly one of the best places to go if you are eager to see these prehistoric beasties. This is not only because they are more numerous here but also because this area is dedicated to their conservation and research, meaning that you will not only be contributing to their preservation but will be amongst people whose passion for, and knowledge of these animals is almost unparalleled.
The camp is nothing fancy but very comfortable and well appointed. Large en-suite tented rooms with big beds, colourful cushions and copper sinks provide a great base for your explorations. The canvas lounge and dining area looks out over the basalt mountains of Damaraland.
Days here are spent on foot or in open game-drive vehicles in search of the rhino and other big mammals, including Hatmann’s mountain zebra, giraffe, lion and kudu. Alongside trackers from Save the Rhino Trust, you are likely to gain a real understanding of the ecology and conservation of this area.
Includes full board accommodation, scheduled activities, soft drinks, beer, house wines and local spirits, park fees where applicable. Does not include special activities, premium wines, champagne and spirits, gratuities, items of a personal nature.
