Desert Rhino Camp
Desert Rhino Camp is a unique experience of what appears to be a camp in an utterly desolate area. The Palmwag concession is over 5000 square kilometers and home to an incredible array of wildlife. The area has a number of fresh- water springs that support good populations of the rare Hartmann’s mountain zebra, giraffe, oryx, springbok and kudu. It is also one of the best places to see desert-dwelling black rhino and elephants. Predators including lion, cheetah, leopard, and brown and spotted hyena are also quite common.
Desert Rhino Camp has eight tents ensuring a small intimate lodge atmosphere. The Meru-style tents are constructed on wooden decks each with a deck at the front entrance. Double doors lead into the tent where a double or single tent set up is made for guests. The tent flaps open to mosquito proofing mesh, this lets the wind through – but not the insects. Extra linen or blankets are available on request if the nights are cold.
Sandy pathways lead from the tents to the main area that has a lounge to one side A dining table and a small, intimate bar grace the other side of the main lodge. Raised up on a low wooden deck this area is laid out with space in mind and fantastic views of the waterhole. With floodlights on at night its possible to dine and game watch at the same time. There is a lot of game that rely on this water so its likely you will see some nocturnal activity.
