Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Desert Rhino Camp is in the Palmwag Concession. 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 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.

The décor is simple yet comfortable in earthy tones reminiscent of the land beyond. It’s easy on the eye with subtle hints of colour and pattern in between. Just enough to leave the main focus on the ever-changing hues of the incredible setting sun on the horizon in strong contrast to the deserted plains below.

Meal times area cause for yet more surprises as first-class food is whipped up from what seems like the bare earth and served beneath what could easily be the darkest night sky you’ve ever experienced. It’s spectacular.

As are the sightings of the black rhinos you will most likely get a chance to see, although not guaranteed. Head out with your guide in search of them and all the while exploring the wilderness, so vast, so remote and so untouched. Seeing a black rhino is always amazing. Seeing them in this setting is indescribable.
