Campsite in the dry, rocky landscape of Kunene, Namibia

Between Kaokoland and the Skeleton Coast, where the flat-topped Etendeka mountains and the carpet of rich red rock greet the tributaries of the Uniab River, lies Palmwag Lodge. Amid swaying makalani palms and robust mopane trees nourished by underground water, the lodge overlooks the sweeping northern Damaraland landscape peppered with green euphorbias. We have adapted the Standard Operating Procedures for all our service Centers and lodges in line with the Government of Namibia’s instructions to the tourism industry. We want to ensure the safest possible environment for our guests and employees whilst offering a comfortable, unforgettable Namibian experience. https://gondwana-collection.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Gondwana_Health-and-Safety-Measures.pdf COVID-19 travel and specific testing requirements for your destination and airlines are regularly updated.

Best time to go to Damaraland

Best
Good
Acceptable
You’ll be relieved to hear that the dramatic and glorious Damaraland is a year-long destination! However, the best time to visit is in May through to September, due to animals frequenting waterholes, so you’ll be spoiled with especially rare sightings. If you want Damaraland all to yourself, avoid visiting in July to September when some places can get rather busy. From October to January things can get heated during the day, so come prepared with clothes to stay cool and enough water to hydrate you during your daily experiences!
