Formerly classified as critically endangered, the resurgence of black rhino populations in Namibia is a testament to the success of a conservation alliance between local communities and eco-tourism initiatives. Our Grootberg Conservancy has received acclaim from the Ministry of Environment and Tourism for its role as a rhino custodian, demonstrating extensive efforts to safeguard this highly poached species.
This excursion blends walking and driving through the rocky terrain, meandering amid the cliffs and volcanic basalt ridges of the Damaraland Region. A stop near the springs for refreshments is included around lunchtime. Please note, this almost full-day venture, combining bumpy road travel and rocky terrain exploration, is more suited for the adventurous, and sightings of rhinos are not guaranteed.
Please do prepare yourself for almost a full day of driving in an open vehicle on 4x4-only roads and walking in rough terrain. Again, we cannot guarantee sightings of these incredible creatures as they are not enclosed in any way.
Departure: Early morning, please check with reception for the specific departure time.
Duration: ¾ day
Please Note: A minimum of 2 guests per excursion, with a maximum of 8 per vehicle. For safety reasons, children under 16 years of age are not allowed.
