Desert Rhino Camp
Desert Rhino Camp is a remote safari camp in the vast Palmwag Concession between Etosha and the Namib desert of the Skeleton Coast. Comfortable en suite safari tents and a casual living area provide the backdrop for a fascinating wilderness experience.
Desert Rhino Camp is in the Palmwag Concession between Etosha National Park and the Skeleton Coast of Namibia. Covering a staggering 400,000ha, the community-owned nature reserve has an intricate ecosystem supporting desert-adapted wildlife including elephants and the world's largest population of black free-roaming rhino.
The luxurious accommodation at the Palmwag Desert Rhino Camp is enhanced by its remote and precarious existence. The camp has eight walk-in Meru-style safari tents on elevated platforms with en suite bathrooms and delightful hot-water bucket showers; the living area has enormous sofas that look out through open sides at the remarkable Damaraland landscape. Mealtimes are a cause for yet more surprises as first-class food is whipped up from what seems like the bare earth.
Full board accommodation; eight large East African-style tents; en-suite bathroom; bucket shower; tented dining room; airstrip
