Desert Rhino Camp: picture gallery


The Desert Rhino Camp is situated in the Palmwag Concession area…
...which is a vast area containing fragile ecosystems.
The camp has 8 walk-in meru-style tents...
...raised up on wooden decks.
The tents are well equipped with comfortable beds.
Tea and coffee are provided in your tent along with hot water.
Copper fixtures in the en-suite bathrooms add a touch of luxury to the traditional design of the tents...
…with flushing toilets…
…and hot showers.
The main area has an open dining area...
...where evening meals are normally served communally...
...as well as a comfortable lounge.
Tea and coffee is available all day and cake in the afternoon.
Cool off in the plunge pool…
...or explore this vast area with your guide …
…in an open landrover…
…who will know best where to find the game.
Welwitchia mirabilis is common here and able to survive in this harsh dry environment with very little water.
Experience the remoteness…
...with unusual but stunning landscapes...
...and views as far as the eye can see.
The focus here is on tracking black rhino with your guide and local trackers...
...and may also involve a picnic lunch out in the wilderness.
You may be lucky to see some of the last free-ranging black rhino in the world...
...as well as desert-adapted elephants.
Other game you may see are bat-eared foxes...
...oryx...
and springbok.
Days are best finished enjoying a sundowner overlooking the vast concession.
