Remote, exclusive and specialised, Desert Rhino Camp is located in the vast Palmwag Concession, a semi-desert reserve of about 5,000km² between Etosha National Park and the Skeleton Coast that is one of the best places to see desert-dwelling black rhino and elephants. The camp has been operating for over 20 years and its activities – run by a reliably superb and committed team – centre on tracking black rhino.

Our view of Desert Rhino Camp

Desert Rhino Camp is one of our favourite camps in Namibia. It's very remote, and feels it; it's got tremendous character, as have the managers here when we’ve visited; and it offers the chance to track black rhinos – which is something that's possible in very few places indeed. The camp does work as a two-night stop, but to make the most of it, you need three nights here. This may appear to be a big chunk of time, and it's not an inexpensive camp – but we think that the Rhino Camp is well worth it.
