* Camping information:
Camping at Palmwag Lodge is on a self-catering basis. Additionally, light lunch / dinner can be ordered at the lapa near the pool and poolbar, but regrettably no breakfast. There are electric points, ablution facilities are shared with other campers (hot & cold water) and every site has a fire place. Camp sites are mostly shaded by palm trees and shrubs. Campers are welcome to make use of the pool, poolbar, lapa (restaurant) and to partake in host activities. Bookings are essential as there are only 8 sites of various sizes at the lodge.



Leave Palmwag Lodge early after breakfast. Enjoy a tour in open 4 x 4 game-viewing vehicles into the concession area of the lodge. Spectacular close-up viewing of Namibia’s only free-ranging game e.g. zebra, kudu, Oryx, springbuck, ostrich, jackal, brown and spotted hyena, and with a bit of luck the endangered black rhino and desert elephant. All in the most spectacular landscape far off the normal tourist tracks and routes. Wash off the heat of the day in one of the many natural pools in the area. Picnic lunch en-route. Return to the lodge late afternoon for a unique sundowner. ±8 hour excursion.


Depart Palmwag Lodge early morning after breakfast via the Sesfontein Pass in the direction of Opuwo. First contact with local Ovahimba people in their villages in the Opuwo region. Experience daily life of this nomadic tribe who still live according to ancient traditions and rituals. Picnic lunch en route. Return trip to Palmwag Lodge with a short visit to Khowarib Schlucht near the origin of the Hoanib River. Magnificent landscape and surroundings. Arrival back at Palmwag Lodge late in the afternoon.  ±10 hour excursion.

Letter: rhino patrol tours

Dear partners in tourism,
We regret having to advise that because of various conservation and ethical reasons as stated below, the popular daily rhino patrol PW 005 will no longer be offered as an activity by the lodge. Research conducted lately has shown that excessive stress has been put onto the species and if this activity will be continued, more stress and in all probability a casualty will be the end result. In addition a new rhino monitoring program was launched recently where radio transmitters have been implanted into the horns of some rhino in order to exactly monitor their behaviour and movements in the concession area.
With continued support to the SRT and conservation as such, we have decided to discontinue the activity with immediate effect. I am convinced that the outcome of this in the long term will be beneficial to all parties involved. A suitable alternative activity in this case is our popular PW 004 – Damaraland Wildlife day tour where the client, apart from an exciting encounter with all normal plains animals inclusive of the desert elephant (dry season), will in all probability see rhinos as well. The only difference is that the tour will not be accompanied by the SRT specialists and clients will not be able to physically track the rhino on foot.
A very serious and dedicated rhino tracking project is supported and offered through our Palmwag Rhino Camp operation and I want to encourage you as our loyal supporter to assist us in our efforts and consequently common goal; saving the last black rhino in one of the most fantastic true Namibian wildlife areas.

Best regards,
Jockel Gruettemeyer
