Palmwag Lodge

Palmwag Lodge is set among rows of waving palms that continuously whisper in the wind, making it a relaxing destination to enjoy for a few days. It sleeps a maximum of 30 guests in two- to three-bedroomed thatched bungalows and 14 guests in luxury en-suite tents, as well as one eight-bed, child-friendly family unit.

A restaurant, bar and outdoor lapa for evening meals is where most guests share news of game sightings if not while cooling off in the swimming pool. Morning and afternoon drives are offered daily as well as hiking trails. Guided excursions and overnight under-canvas safaris are popular as they take you deep into the heart of Damaraland with its star-filled night skies.

It's also possible to visit the nomadic Ovahimba people in villages in the Opuwo area. This ten-hour excursion allows visitors to experience daily life with this tribe who still live according to ancient traditions and rituals, before enjoying a picnic en route to Khowarib Schlucht near the origin of the Hoanib River.
Palmwag is also a perfect base for onward travel to the Kaokoland, Etosha and Epupa Falls. The concession supports nearly 70% of the world's largest free-ranging population of black rhino, making it a unique global attraction. A minimum stay of two nights is advised to give enough time to track black rhino - easy enough to do as the sway of the palms soon lulls you into a slower pace!

Palmwag Lodge is accessible by road (around seven hours from Swakopmund) but also via an 800m gravel airstrip so it's easy to visit if combining a stay with other African safari destinations. Palmwag is also open to campers and day visitors but entry to the surrounding private concession area is by valid permit only from Palmwag.
