Located amongst the rocky hills of the Palmwag Concession, Desert Rhino Camp boards travelers in a secluded area of Namibia while on African safari. Eight Meru-style canvas tents are lofted on wooden decks above the desolate terrain, and contain twin or double beds, mosquito nets, a comfortable reading chair, and writing table. Each tent also house en-suite facilities including a hand basin, flush toilet and shower. The large common areas include dining facilities, a lounge area, and bar.
Desert Rhino Camp functions as a collaborative effort between Wilderness Safaris and the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) - an NGO that has been has been instrumental in the preservation of these rare, desert adapted black rhino. Having barely survived the slaughter of '80s and '90s throughout other parts of Africa, the black rhino population has doubled since the formation of the SRT.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
