Ugab Rhino Camp
Distance: about 111km
We left Aba-Huab Camp, dragging our feet. We enjoyed a wonderful stay and wish to thank the staff for their excellent and friendly service. We were served by Jenny, Simon and Samuel. They are doing a good job of running this camp.
Aba-Huab to Ugab Rhino Base Camp
Ugab Rhino Base Camp is the Base Camp for the Save the Rhino Trust, an organisation committed to save Rhinos and more specific, the Desert Rhino of Namibia.
The camp is situated next to the Ugab River in a very desolate area of the Planet. The camp regularly gets visited by the Desert Elephants roaming the Ugab River. The camping spots are enclosed in reed quads to help keep the elephants from getting too close to campers at night. Provided that the campers have a light burning through the night.
The camp has several campsites with several ablution blocks along the river. Each campsite has a toilet near the site. The ablution blocks have hot water by "donkey" where the fire is being made by the staff.
The camp often gets visited by the Elephants, since they have a drinking spot built for the elephants next to the Admin building. Please consult with the camp supervisor about the appropriate conduct when the elephants are there.
This camp can be reached by vehicles that has a high ground clearance. 4X4 Vehicles preferable.
