Wilderness Desert Rhino Camp

Wilderness Desert Rhino Camp is situated in the vast Palmwag Concession which is over a million acres in size. It is home to the largest population of free-roaming Black Rhino (Diceros bicornis) in Africa; this is a stunning area of rolling rocky hills dotted with freshwater springs in hidden valleys which support an unusual array of desert fauna and flora.

The Experience

The main focus of the experience at Wilderness Desert Rhino Camp is tracking the Black Rhino and it is an incredible experience but it is not just about the Black Rhino; the natural freshwater springs support populations of desert-adapted elephant, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu and predators such as brown and spotted hyaena and, though rarely seen, lion, cheetah and leopard. There is a good range of birds and some fascinating plants and trees. The Entendeka Mountains dominate the scenery with their flat tops and dry river courses cut through the landscape dotted with Euphorbia, bottle tree, shepherd’s trees and ancient welwitschia.

The Accommodation

The camp consists of 10 thatched ensuite units raised on individual wood decking – part of which extends out to form a large viewing deck with magnificent views down the valley. One of these is a family unit consisting of two ensuite tents with separate entrance but shared deck. The main area features a restaurant and bar, and a swimming pool. An open campfire and outdoor ‘boma’ can be enjoyed during calm evenings, with superb stargazing in the crystal-clear night skies.
