No. 10 Conservation Coalitions

Private sector, NGO and community unite for black rhino conservation

Why do we believe?

  • Desert Rhino Camp, in partnership with Save the Rhino Trust (SRT), operates as a rhino monitoring post in what would otherwise be an unmonitored area, thus increasing rhino security.
  • Rigorous scientific monitoring of tourism activities proves that there is no behavioural or other negative impact on this black rhino population.
  • Together with our partners we have managed to dramatically and sustainably increase the range of desert-adapted black rhino in the north-west, as well as the overall population as a result of more aggressive recruitment rates.
  • The Namibian north-west is indisputably home to Africa’s most important population of black rhino to have survived outside a formally-protected park.

Desert Rhino Camp is an inspiring story of modern conservation success, bringing Wilderness Safaris, Save the Rhino Trust and three Namibian conservancies together for the conservation of a unique species – the desert-adapted black rhino.

Together with our partners we have managed to dramatically and sustainably increase the population and range of desert-adapted black rhino in north-west Namibia.
