Ugab River Rhino Camp
Ugab Base Camp is situated along the south bank of the mighty Ugab River, within site of the Brandberg Mountain, Namibias highest mountain.
Ugab Base Camp also maintains a small education centre for passing tourists as well as a self-catering campground with showers and toilets. From Ugab Base Camp, SRT trackers access rhinos in the southern portion of their Kunene range including the elusive handful ranging across Doro !Nawas, Twyfelfontein-Uibasen, Sorris Sorris and Tsiseb Conservancies.
Bernd and Erica Brell, SRTs Directors of Monitoring and Patrols and Administration & Accounting, respectively, call Ugab Base Camp home while in the field.
Save the Rhino Trust is
a non-profit organisation (Welfare Organisation No 53) and the camping fees we
receive are effectively a donation towards the Trust.
The campsite is remote and rustic - 4 x 4 needed to get there.
There is no entrance fee.
