Your right on the Uniab River and your sundowner view is out onto the Palmwag Concession and a skyline of makalani palms. This area is well known for desert-adapted elephants, black rhino and lions. Wide open, endless landscapes and rugged rocky terrains makes spotting them out here a real wonder.
Accommodation comes in the form of thatched bungalows, tented rooms or self-contained camping. The tents and bungalows have en suite bathrooms and a choice of two-bed, three-bed or family units.
The centre-piece is the fabulous pool, bar and restaurant area. It opens daily from mid-morning for the campers who can't be bothered to cook and anyone intent on spending the whole day relaxing by the pool - a perfectly acceptable choice given the beautiful setting.
Bought over by the Gondwana Collection, Palmwag Lodge is under new ownership as of May 2019. They've already done a lot since then and there's still loads to come.
The camp has some well-planned hiking trails and you can go on several different full day and overnight excursions into the Damaraland bush in search of the desert-adapted elephant and rare black rhino. Birdwatching is excellent with a number of Namibia's endemics and near endemics and animals you might see are oryx, springbok, zebra, kudu, ostrich, bat-eared fox, brown and spotted hyena and your night time chorus will include a large number of smaller species.
Morning and afternoon guided game drives; guided full day excursions; overnight excursions to Ovahimba, Epupa Falls and Kunene River; self-guided hikes; morning and afternoon walks.
