Palmwag Lodge, Damaraland
The Palmwag Concession is an area of 4,500 square kilometres in the Kunene Region of North West Namibia. This region provides habitat for a variety of rare species of plants and animals, including those adapted to the semi-desert conditions such as elephants, mountain zebra and giraffe. The Concession also supports nearly 70% of the world's largest free-ranging population of black rhinoceros and functions as the crucial core area in the region. The unique fauna and flora within the Concession also serve as a national, regional and global attraction.
Palmwag Lodge is located on the Uniab River in northwest Damaraland and is one of Namibia’s oldest and most popular tourist lodges. The lodge offers 30 beds in 2 or 3 bedded thatched bungalows (below left), and 10 beds in luxury ensuite tents (below right), a fully licensed restaurant, swimming pool under shady palms, and a very cosy pool bar.
