Palmwag - Welcome to Namibia
Welcome to Namibia, where a spectacular, sprawling wilderness awaits you. This is the land of rolling desert dunes, undulating into the distance as far as the eye can see. This is the land of promising gems with birdlife and wildlife that will astonish you; the extraordinary juxtaposition of the harsh and the inhospitable with the luscious and the living in this beautiful country will take your breath away. You will be experiencing this intriguing landscape on foot, by vehicle and, if you wish, from the air. Firstly, your journey brings you to the stunning Palmwag area, where you meet your guide for the journey that awaits you. Surrounded on all sides by palm trees, the lodge itself is set in an unexpected Eden here in the arid and sparse desert, and the waterhole draws visitors, both human and animal, into its lush and green embrace.
Said to be one of the most likely places to spot predators outside of Etosha National Park, the lodge’s location near to the Uniab River heightens the chance of animal visitors and you may be lucky enough to see desert rhino, elephants, mountain zebra and even leopard, cheetah or lion. The charming little thatched chalets of the lodge, complete with canopy beds, as well as the cool and inviting swimming pool will ensure pampered luxury when you really need to kick off your shoes and relax. The exciting combination of morning and evening game drives and bush walks will introduce you to a truly wild and magical world that will continue to unfold over the next few days of your Namibian adventure. This will be your first game-viewing experience out in the bush, and a taste of what is to come. Starting tomorrow, you will be exploring mostly on foot, and immersing yourself fully into the wilds of Namibia.
