Day 6: Twyfelfontein - Palmwag Area
Palmwag is a paradise on the Uniab River in northwest Damaraland a vacation opportunity with a difference. Waving palms whispering in the wind, spectacular surroundings which harbour the famous desert elephant, the rare black rhino, giraffe, zebra, gemsbok and many other wild animal species, sunsets to dream of this is Palmwag Lodge, one of Namibias oldest and most popular tourist rendezvous. Morning and afternoon game drives are offered daily. The well laid-out hiking trails let you enjoy and discover the neighboring nature. In the concession area around Palmweg Lodge there are large populations of Hartman's Mountain Zebra, giraffe, oryx, springbok and kudu. The predator population is the largest outside of the Etosha National Park, with over 100 lions, cheetah, and leopard, brown and spotted hyena. Bird life is prolific and diverse with most of Namibia's endemics present. This concession supports a healthy population of desert adapted black rhino and elephants, under the management of the Save the Rhino Trust. The views across the desert from the lodge are truly awe inspiring for those who would like to relax at the lodge.
