In more detail

This exclusive camp is run in conjunction with Namibia’s Save the Rhino Trust and is set amongst 450,000 hectares of pristine Damaraland wilderness in the arid Palmwag Concession, home to the largest free-roaming black rhino population in Africa. The profits from the camp contribute to the aforementioned trust’s work in preserving the sustainability of this vulnerable area and its surprisingly diverse array of wildlife. A stay here includes twice-daily game drives in the desert and a chance to track the elusive desert rhino on foot accompanied by extremely knowledgeable guides. The reserve has a number of freshwater springs that supports strong populations of animals so elephant, giraffe, springbok and rhino are easily spotted, as well as a host of predators including lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas. Magnificent desert views can be enjoyed from the camp’s lounge and dining areas and the luxurious accommodation is in eight Meru-style canvas tents that are raised off the ground on wooden decks featuring private verandahs with seating and stylish bathrooms with twin copper sinks, a flush toilet and shower. Comfortable king-sized beds are draped with the all-important mosquito nets over crisp, cotton linens and the elegant rooms epitomise safari-chic, furnished with dark woods and leather chairs. There’s a swimming pool so you can gain respite from the African sun and the tented and elevated dining area and lounge of the camp’s mess are refined areas to relax in. By night, evening meals are served either in the dining room or outside around the camp’s fire pit, under Namibia’s spectacular star-filled skies.
