Desert Rhino Camp Game Viewing and Activities
Game Viewing is a priority in this camp. Desert Rhino Camp is run in conjunction with Save the Rhino Trust (SRT), an organisation that has been singly responsible for helping to ensure that these rare, desert adapted black rhino survived the slaughter that went on throughout other parts of Africa in the '80s and '90s. Today this population of black rhino is growing in numbers and the area boasts the largest concentration of rhino anywhere on the planet outside of a national park. The Palmwag Concession, situated in the north-west region of Namibia, has a surprising array of wildlife, apart from Rhino, desert adapted elephant can also be found. There are large populations of Hartman's mountain zebra, giraffe, oryx, springbok and kudu. The predator population is the largest outside of the Etosha National Park with over 100 lions, cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena. Bird life is prolific and diverse with most of Namibia's endemics present. Activities include, rhino tracking on foot or by vehicle, night drives and full day outings (with a picnic lunch) on the concession.
