Exquisite room, stunning location

We were priviledged to be given The Suite, a superb set of rooms way beyond anything we expected. Rather OTT, for a lodge in a developing country!

The view was amazing, even from the bathroom.

Camp Kipwe review

We drove from Swakopmund and stopped at Uis. We found it concerning that the only garage there had no petrol and indeed were not expecting a delivery for 2 days. Fortunately we had enough for our journey, had just wanted to top-up as recommended. We found an excellent coffee shop there ?Cactus Coffee at the end of the village.

Camp Kipwe was excellent in every respect - just one small detail, a fridge in the room would be an improvement to keep water in - only place we didn't have one (sole reason why facilities rated as average).

The desert elephant trip was a highlight - not to be missed. Our guide Taffy was very knowledgeable.

Camp Kipwe review

Remarkable setting. Desert adapted elephants crossed the road in front of us 500m from the camp turn off. The rooms were remarkable but not as spectacular as the very outdoor shower and loo!

If you love lizards Kipwe is for you with multicoloured agamas strutting their stuff and geckos hanging out round the bathroom mirror. Sundowner setting great and food lovely. Worth going on guided game drive as being surrounded by the rare desert adapted elephants is a magical experience.

We spent 3 nights here and easily occupied our time with trips to ancient rock carvings and the Damara living museum.

Wow! What a place!

We LOVED this place. The 'rooms' are so cleverly constructed and very private and comfortable. The food was of a very high standard with a choice of main.

The sundowner terrace was beautiful and the food and drink we were served made it very special. We did a morning game drive and the visit to the rock carvings in the afternoon and both were very worthwhile. Tafi the gui9de was especially knowledgeable about the animals and the area.

Kipwe, an amazing Lodge amongst the boulders

An amazing lodge built amongst rock boulders. It must have taken some imagination to create this!

Rooms were spacious, with loo and shower open to the stars, but our loo was only separated from the adjoining room's loo by a low wall! Fortunately we didn't use it at the same time as our neighbours! Their rock pool was really cold, though I did have a quick splash!

A very good sundowner just above the lodge with drinks brought to us by the staff. Our highlight here was an early morning tour (4 hours!) to find a herd of 10 desert elephants, including young. Very rewarding.
