Fodor's Review

If it's rhinos you're after, especially the rare black rhino, then this remote tented camp, formerly Palmwag Rhino Camp, in the heart of the private 1 million–acre Palmwag Reserve is a must. Because there are freshwater springs everywhere, you'll see not only the desert-adapted black rhino, but plenty of other game, too, including desert elephants, giraffes, zebras, kudu, and possibly lions, leopards, and cheetahs. The camp collaborates with the Save the Rhino Trust,

and one of the highlights of your stay will be tracking the rare black rhino on foot. (If this is not your idea of fun, go tracking in an open vehicle instead.) You'll likely feel very close to the desert in your spacious tent with en-suite bathroom, flush toilet, and hot water on demand for your bucket shower.
