Palmwag Lodge

go! Namibia - - TOP TEN DAMARALAND -

This lodge next to the Uniab River is the fi­nal stop be­fore you en­ter Kaokoveld fur­ther north. Its oa­sis-promis­ing palm trees have been beck­on­ing trav­ellers for decades.

Palmwag is sur­rounded by the Torra, An­abeb and Ses­fontein con­ser­va­tion ar­eas – known for their big cats – and vis­i­tors can go on a guided game drive (three hours; from R620 per per­son, drinks in­cluded). You might not even have to leave the camp to see game: Ele­phants oc­ca­sion­ally visit the gar­den.

If you’re just pass­ing through, stop for a light meal at the thatched restau­rant next to the swim­ming pool or stay over and have a proper three-course din­ner (R315 per per­son).

The stands in the camp­site are close to­gether, but there are bushes sep­a­rat­ing them so your neigh­bour won’t think you’re steal­ing his omelette recipe when you’re ac­tu­ally just look­ing for birds. The best stands are the ones next to the Uniab River. Where? 121 km from Ka­man­jab; 162 km from Khorixas. GPS: S19.88577 E13.93728 Rates: Camp­ing R205 per per­son. Lodge ac­com­mo­da­tion R1 745 per per­son shar­ing; R2 180 sin­gle sup­ple­ment; din­ner and break­fast in­cluded. Con­tact: 00 264 81 620 6687; palmwa­glodge.com
