Palmwag Rhino Camp is situated in the
1-million-acre private Palmwag Reserve in northwest Namibia, between Etosha and
the Skeleton Coast - few places on the planet can offer this level of privacy
and wilderness experience.
This desert reserve has a number of fresh
water springs that support healthy populations of animals including desert
adapted Back Rhino and Elephants as well as large populations of the rare
Hartmann'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 Hyaena. Bird life is prolific and
diverse with most of Namibia's endemics present.
Palmwag Rhino Camp has
eight large East African-styled "Meru" tents each with an en-suite bathroom
comprising hand basin, flush toilet and a classic bucket shower that is filled
with hot water whenever needed. The tented dining room offers uninterrupted
views of the desert and mountains. Welwitschia (ancient desert adapted plants)
plants dot the plain in front of the camp. The primary activity is rhino
tracking which is usually by vehicle until a sighting is made by trackers and
then on foot. Guests can also enjoy full day outings, with a picnic lunch, on
Palmwag Rhino Camp is a joint venture between Wilderness
Safaris and the "Save the Rhino Trust" - a non-profit conservation organisation
that has been working in this area for 20 years. The Trust 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. Community game scouts who were employed by the Trust to help with
the patrolling and monitoring all these years are now seconded to the camp and
are the trackers and guides. A portion of every guest's revenue goes to the
