Desert Rhino Camp, Damaraland

Working with Save The Rhino, this 16 guest private reserve is set against the backdrop of the Etendeka Mountains. Eat under the stars and on private verandas watch the game go by in the panoramic views.

Sensational as that is, there is another, greater reward on offer at Desert Rhino Camp. Not only will you see desert-adapted black rhinos, you’ll be contributing to their continued survival. Desert Rhino Camp operates in collaboration with the Save The Rhino Trust (SRT) and has succeeded in doubling the native population of this decimated species.

You’ll find the Camp is worth visiting for other reasons too. You’ll sleep in genuine, Meru-style canvas tents raised above the bush on wooden platforms. You’ll dine outdoors, gathered around the fire pit and you’ll adventure out into the bush to meet rhino, desert-adapted elephants, mountain zebra, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu, lion, leopard, hyena and any numbers of birds.

  • What was particularly impressive was the way in which Catherine listened to what we like to do and combined all of this in a destination we would not have considered - a truly terrific effort.
