A rustic safari camp centred on rhino conservation in Namibia’s Palmwag Concession

Retreat to the heart of Palmwag Concession’s 550.000 ha at the Desert Rhino Camp, where you have the unique opportunity to track the critically endangered desert-adapted black rhino. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views across the sweeping plain or star-studded night skies right from your Meru-style tent’s terrace or while sharing special memories with new friends around the campfire. As pioneers of conservation and ecotourism, Desert Rhino Camp encourages its guests to take part in bird watching or guided nature walks and game drives led by the seasoned Save the Rhino Trust monitors, where you will be able to spot a number of desert-adapted animals roaming on the unique basalt landscape.

Best time to go to Damaraland

You’ll be relieved to hear that the dramatic and glorious Damaraland is a year-long destination! However, the best time to visit is in May through to September, due to animals frequenting waterholes, so you’ll be spoiled with especially rare sightings. If you want Damaraland all to yourself, avoid visiting in July to September when some places can get rather busy. From October to January things can get heated during the day, so come prepared with clothes to stay cool and enough water to hydrate you during your daily experiences!


Meru-style tent

The 8 cosy and elevated Meru-style tents offer stunning views across the open plains of the Palmwag Concession. Each tent features 2 twin beds with mosquito netting, an open-plan en-suite bathroom and a shower with free essentials. All units are furnished with a comfortable leather couch, a wooden chair and writing desk, and a coffee/tea unit.
