Palmwag Lodge offers the independent traveller an exceptional Damaraland and desert experience. Located between the Skeleton Coast and Etosha, the lodge is an excellent stop between north and south Namibia.
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.
Recently bought over by the Gondwana Collection, Palmwag Lodge will be under new ownership as of May 2019. Watch this space for changes.
10 thatched en suite chalets; 19 en-suite tents; child-friendly family unit; restaurant; 2 swimming pools under shady palms; pool bar and lapa
