Set in the private Palmwag area of rugged, beautiful Damaraland, Desert Rhino Camp is a luxury tented camp run in conjunction with the Save the Rhino Trust. The camp contributes directly to the Trust, a lifeline for the region's endangered black rhino and is ultimately an important contributor to the sustainability of this vulnerable area and its surprisingly diverse wildlife.

You will share Desert Rhino Camp with dedicated conservationists and local trackers for a unique game viewing experience. The morning and afternoon game drives centre around tracking rhino although there are also healthy populations of antelope, and the predator population is the largest outside of the Etosha National Park with over 100 lion, cheetah, leopard, and brown and spotted hyena resident. Moreover, birding enthusiasts are sure to appreciate the prolific and diverse birdlife in the Palmwag area.

Standard Double Tent

The camp's eight canvas tents are raised on wooden decks that extend into private verandas with endless views of Damaraland's magical landscapes. The simple en suite bathrooms have a flush toilet, a basin with hot and cold water provided and a bucket shower with hot water on demand.


The L-shaped main tent hugs the open campfire and consists of a comfortable lounge area on one side and a long dining table on the other. All areas have sweeping views of Damaraland's stark but beautiful scenery.


At Desert Rhino Camp a breakfast buffet, including a cooked breakfast, is available to keep you going during your morning game viewing activities, while lunch is usually a picnic surrounded by desert scenery.

Late afternoon tea with sweet and savoury options is available in camp before your afternoon drive and in the evening a variety of delicious dishes are enjoyed outside and under the stars around the open-air fireplace.

Traveller Reviews

Desert Rhino Camp

Memos Amphitrion Holidays S.A.

"We had great tented accommodations and was very well conceived. The trekking black rhinos on foot was exciting and great exercise. The staff here (led by Daphne) were top notch."

Connie Blome

"At Desert Rhino we finally spot a rhino and were able to track him, there is a 50% chance of finding one on their vast reserve. Animal viewing there was very limited but the landscape was beautiful!"

Jean Setlakwe

One of the highlights : it was interesting to stay in a tented camp after our very 'comfortable' stay in Purros.. On the second day we went alone with the rhino trackers (since we were the only guests in the camp) a very good experience. In total we saw 5 black rhinos! its worth to stay at least 2 days to give you a chance to see the rhinos. We liked the tented camp experience, and this is where staff and guides were the most friendly during whole trip.
