Palmwag Lodge is nestled in a fantastic location next to a palm-lined spring in the Uniab River. One of this region's oldest lodges, and able to accommodate a significant number of people, it was renovated in 2014. We were pleased to see the newly renovated facilities and rooms on our most recent trip in December 2015. The lodge now boasts a large airy, thatched reception area, a newly revamped restaurant, a second swimming pool, four new bungalows (three twins and a single) have since been added near the lodge’s main area; the original view tents have also been upgraded and a further five tented chalets have been added further from the main area on a hill. The original 13 standard rooms at the lodge have also been revamped.
Our view of Palmwag Lodge
Palmwag Lodge may have a superb location, but has been looking a little tired over recent years. On our most recent visit in December 2015, we were pleased to see the newly renovated lodge, with a large airy thatched reception area, a newly revamped restaurant, a second swimming pool, four new bungalows (three twins and a single); ten new tented chalets (six of which are further from the main area on a hill and four are close to the main area). The original rooms have also undergone a revamp. For some of the more adventurous travellers, the best option is to spend a night relaxing at the lodge, followed by a night or two camping ‘under canvas’, giving the opportunity to explore the sheer scale and beauty of the region, unencumbered by large numbers of other people.
