"Wonderful location"

1 night Arrived 11 Nov 2007
"We were pleasantly surprised by Palmwag. All the animals wandering around the lodge were a real highlight.

The swimming pools were very nice and although it was quite big, it still felt quiet and relaxing." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Peaceful Palmwag"

2 nights Arrived 21 Sep 2007
"Palmway was in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The accommodation is spread out along the river bed where elephants wander from time to time. The reeds along this river bed supply excellent cover for huge flocks of birds whose wing beats, in that quantity, were astounding.

We were told that the management no longer recommend you walking out of the camp by yourselves but did not stop you from doing so. Quite a few folks (including ourselves) did walk, but just take care of the elephants around the riverbed area.
You can pay a guide to will walk with you if required." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"SUPER LOCATION."

1 night Arrived 23 Aug 2007
"WE FOUND PALMWAG TO BE THE LEAST FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL OF ALL OF THE PLACES WE STAYED.

tHIS WAS MADE UP FOR BY THE ELEPHANT! hE WAS OUTSIDE OUR TENT WHEN WE WOKE UP LIEING IN THE GRASS. TIM NEARLY WALKED INTO HIM IN THE LONG GRASS!

tHE FOOD WAS GOOD AND THE WAITING STAFF FRIENDLY, BUT THE MANAGEMENT WAS INDIFFERENT. fOR EXAMLE, WE HEARD STORIES ABOUT THE ELEPHANT AT OUR NEXT PLACE THAT WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOLD THERE.

wE TRIED A SELF-GUIDED WALK, BUT THE WAY WAS NOT CLEARLY MARKED AND SO WE JUST MADE UP OUR OWN ROUTE!" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Amazing location"

2 nights Arrived 11 Aug 2007
"Nice warm welcome on arrival

Restuarant staff and process was disorganised, and the food on the first night was terrible

Our room was nice, with a good view, but there were a couple of holes in our mostiuquto net which made it a but useless -
small things like this are easy to fix and should be

Honab day trip was really good" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia
