On safari at Palmwag Rhino Camp game & desert lodge in Damaraland in Namibia, you will enjoy 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 the reserve. Considering the proximity of the concession to the Skeleton Coast Park and true Namib Desert, this area is home to a surprisingly high variety and density of wildlife. The 450.000 hectare area supports the largest free roaming population of Black Rhino in Africa as well as a healthy number of desert adapted Elephants. There are good populations of Hartman's mountain zebra, giraffe, oryx, springbok, ostrich, lions, cheetah, leopard, spotted and brown hyaena. Bird life is diverse and prolific with most of Namibia's endemics present.


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 Trust.  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. This camp is within the Palmwag concession in the northern Damaraland.
