Exceptional experience

This is a wonderful place - remote, with dramatic scenery, great staff and exciting rhino tracking. We spent an entire day tracking black rhino, finding 5, and coming back at 7pm to a lovely dinner in the bush. Our guide Johannes was very good.

My personal favourite place on our trip.

Be warned - it's very cold first thing in the morning and in the evening ( but hot in the day ! ).

Superb Dessert Rhino Camp

Dessert Rhino Camp was our favourite camp of our trip and perhaps the nicest camp we've ever stayed in.

The atmosphere was wonderful; the staff were the most friendly ever, our guide the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the location superb, the activities fun and exciting. Plus great food and great company. The style is simple but everything you need.

The bush dinner was enormous fun and very much appreciated by all the guests.

All this in an area which felt truly remote.

Desert Rhino

A wonderful place. We loved it.

Had to use 'the african airconditioning' in the tent as it got very hot.

Rhino tracking was incredible

As the descriptions of the camp say, tracking rhinos is the focus of the activities at this camp. Rhino tracking was a major highlight of our trip.

The first day, we spent hours tracking a rhino before the guides showed us where to hide and the rhino walked right in front of us. We thought we'd used up our luck, but on the second day, the trackers found and tracked a group of 3 rhinos which we were able to walk up on and observe without them knowing we were there. Although we were very lucky, there's no guarantee of seeing a rhino on a given day, so we're glad we stayed 3 nights.

We also enjoyed this camp very much. It is and feels like a small and intimate camp. The staff were most welcoming as they greeted us with singing upon arrival and departure. We enjoyed sitting at a communal table and visiting with other guests during meals. Although some may not like it, we enjoyed staying someplace with no cell service or Internet.

Our favourite camp

Wonderful welcome and departure with singing. The service was the friendliest and the best on our trip. The food was out of this world, including a barbeque. Wines of high quality. Amazing to get all this in such a remote location.

Finding black rhinos wasn't easy but it was a marvellous experience when we saw them. Walking up to the rhinos for a short distance made it even better.

Hot water: we found out that there was only enough hot water for one shower a day.

NB The instructions said that the transfer from our car to the camp would take 3-4 hours. This is wrong; it took an hour and a half, but it was still quite hard work. My recommendation would be to fly into this camp, even if the rest of the holiday is self-drive.

Wonderful experience at Desert Rhino Camp

Quite wonderful location - we flew into the camp's airstrip from Windhoek via Doro Nawas Airstrip. Well worth doing. The camp is located quite literally in the middle of the desert.

We stayed for two nights, and wanted more. Had great day tracking black rhino. Everyone was so helpful, generous and fun. A special mention to Lloyd our guide, who was informative and a good companion.

It was good to see rhinos in their natural environment, as well as other animals. We did not expected the hills surrounding the camp and across the whole area to be so beautiful - they changed colour as the day went on, with hues of pink, purple and blue. We were also fortunate in that it had recently rained, and the desert was covered is silvery grass which also changed colour during the day.

Food was excellent and each night the staff explained the menu in local "click" language as well.as English. They are wonderful singers too. A fabulous stay - cannot recommend it highly enough. Will come back one day.

Desert Rhino Camp live up to expectations

We had the most amazing safari and were lucky to see three rhinos on foot and get within 10m of a cheetah (in the truck).

The scenery is beautiful. The guiding was exceptional. The area was just starting to get a game population back as the rains were late.

But we saw springbok giraffe oryx impala as well rhinos and cheetah - all in the most wonderful scenery. Plenty of birds too. Loved it!

Staff at the camp were fantastic and we particularly loved the singing.
