Stay at Wilderness Desert Rhino Camp

Nestled within the captivating Palmwag Concession, Wilderness Desert Rhino Camp is a tranquil oasis located in a valley. Overlooking a vast plain adorned with Namibia’s unique welwitschia plants, this exclusive camp stands as a symbol of protection for the critically endangered black rhino population in Africa, making the majestic rhinos the focal point of the experience. Here, guests are treated to exceptional opportunities rarely found elsewhere. They can partake in guided walks or vehicle excursions led by SRT monitors, a truly original and privileged encounter with the wild. Nature drives offer glimpses of the desert-adapted wildlife and the awe-inspiring scenery, while mindful and guided nature walks unveil the hidden treasures of the area’s smaller flora and fauna.

Returning to the camp after a day of exploration, guests can relish in the refreshing pool and gather around the campfire to immerse themselves in evening stories, share knowledge, and embrace local traditions while savouring delightful cuisine. The camp’s intimate setting, with just eight Meru-style tents, provides a sense of seclusion and privacy. The comfortable and airy tents offer endless views of the rocky plains, complementing the camp’s ambience with hues of red, brown, and orange that pay homage to the ancient desert. The extraordinary clarity of Namibia’s skies seemingly flows into the camp, enhancing the celestial charm. In this convivial atmosphere, the night sky becomes a canvas for stargazing and discovering the constellations of the southern hemisphere. As guests wind down and relax amidst the natural splendour, the wilderness weaves its magic, leaving indelible memories of a remarkable and enriching experience.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
