Where the black rhino roams free

Desert Rhino Camp is set in the untamed Damaraland region, with its ancient water courses, open plains grasslands, stacked granite rocks, and deeply carved gorges. The region is marked with simple beauty, arid-adapted wildlife, and the largest free-roaming black rhino population in Africa. Remote and exclusive, the camp runs in conjunction with the Save the Rhino Trust – contributing to the sustainability of the area and its inhabitants.

Set out on a full-day safari, driving through the vast area to catch glimpses of elephant, gemsbok, giraffe, and Hartmann’s mountain zebra as well as the stalking predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and brown and spotted hyena. Bushwalks centre on the humble fauna and flora that survive the incredibly harsh environment. Track rhinos on foot, following in their odd-toed footprints alongside professional guides.

The Etendeka Mountains set the backdrop for the eight raised Meru-style Standard Tents, each featuring an en-suite bathroom. The canvas tents open onto a veranda overlooking the dramatic landscape, speckled with euphorbia and welwitschia plants. Evening meals are served in the tented dining and lounge area, which is raised on a wooden deck.
