It’s a heart-thumping, breath-taking, hair-raising moment. Camouflaged by surrounding foliage, careful not to make a sound, come close to one of Africa’s most iconic and endangered creatures, nostrils flaring, and know this moment will be etched in your memory forever. It’s humbling, sharing the same ground with one of Africa’s largest, most intimidating animals.
Whether following in the dusty tracks of a desert-adapted black rhino in Namibia during a stay at Wilderness Desert Rhino Camp or Wilderness Damaraland Camp, or tracking the expansive spoor of one of Zambia’s only white rhinos from Wilderness Toka Leya, the privilege is overwhelming. With an experienced tracker always by your side, you'll get to take part of our ongoing monitoring project to protect the World’s last remaining rhinos. Wilderness Desert Rhino houses eight Meru-style tents with views over the rocky plains, while Wilderness Damaraland Camp is home to ten elevated thatched suites overlooking the expansive Namib Desert. Toka Leya sits on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, its 12 suites offering 180-degree views of the lush riverine landscape.
