Damaraland is wild and untamed, but with an undeniable beauty. Here in this arid landscape you’ll find the desert adapted black rhino, inspiring the name of Desert Rhino Camp.
Desert Rhino Camp is within the Palmwag Concession, between Etosha National Park and the Skeleton Coast. It’s been operating for more than 20 years, so the staff are highly experienced and they’re always expanding the camp to offer you something new.
To get the most of this camp - which is very remote - you need to stay here for at least three nights. There are just eight large Meru tents, so the camp can only accommodate 16 guests at a time. This makes for a very intimate experience. Crisp white linens on the king size bed provide a stark backdrop for the writing desk and a leather armchair, perfect to sink into for an afternoon read. Walking into your en suite, you’ll find twin copper basins on the vanity a large, curtain-framed shower, set on rich hardwood floors.
The tents are linked to the main area by sandy paths. You can relax in the lounge or out by the plunge pool, and will enjoy communal dining with other guests. Don’t be surprised by the spotted hyena, who might make a guest appearance on the fringe of camp.
