Desert Rhino Camp is situated in the 1-million-acre private Palmwag Reserve in northwest Namibia, between Etosha and the Skeleton Coast - few places on the planet can offer this level of privacy and wilderness experience.
This desert reserve has some freshwater springs that support healthy populations of animals including desert-adapted Back Rhino and Elephants as well as large populations of the rare Hartmann's Mountain Zebra, Giraffe, Oryx, Springbok, and Kudu.
The predator population is the biggest outside of the Etosha National Park with over 100 Lions, Cheetah, Leopard, Brown and Spotted hyena. Birdlife is prolific and diverse with most of Namibia's endemics present.
Rooms and Suites
Desert Rhino Camp, set in a wide valley sometimes flush with grass, has eight large Meru-style tents with an en-suite bathroom comprising a hand basin, flush toilet and a traditional bucket shower that is filled with hot water whenever needed.
A tented dining and living area offers uninterrupted views of the desert and mountains, while the unusual welwitschia plants dot the plain in front of the camp.
