Palmwag Lodge


Built slighter further from the main lapa than the rooms, and therefore more secluded, each of Palmwag's four safari tents are elevated above the rocks on stilts, overlooking the reed beds of the Uniab River. Each tent has a raised wooden veranda at the front, with a table and two chairs, where you can sit and watch birds and animals come for a drink at the spring below.

Inside, the tents are comfortably furnished with twin beds, towels, basic toiletries, free-standing fans and tea/coffee stations. Above the twin beds are two reading lamps attached to a narrow wood headboard. Each tent also has a dark-wood cabinet (with combination mini-safe), a dressing table with a mirror, plus a hanging rack and shelves for clothes and extra blankets. There is also a time-restricted three-pin South African-style power point, plus mosquito repellent and a horn to use in case of an emergency.

The tent vents can be opened to allow a breeze to come through when days are hot, and there are screens on all the windows and doors. Extra blankets are provided for the cooler winter months.

At the back of each tent is a natural, airy bathroom accessed through a wooden door. The walls are constructed of woven reeds with an open space beneath a canvas roof. There is a hot shower, handbasin and flushing toilet, with hot and cold water on tap and soap provided.
