Camp Kipwe review

Camp Kipwe was one of our favourite camps. We liked the location, hidden in a rocky outcrop.

The rooms were comfortable - not luxurious - but we loved the outdoor bathroom among the huge rocks. The viewpoint and bar on top of the rocks were perfect for watching sunsets.

In addition to doing a trip to see the desert elephants we also went to the afternoon tour to Twylfontein and the Organ Pipes, which are both worth seeing (although one can easily drive oneself there).

These travellers took a morning guided excursion to see desert-adapted elephants during their stay at Camp Kipwe. Here's what they said about it:
We really enjoyed the morning trip to see the desert elephants - we spent a lot of time watching a herd of them, including several young ones. One of the males came and welcomed us by resting his tusks on the hood of the jeep and waving his trunk!

The elephants had all been given names by the guides and were very accustomed to the vehicles, so we could get close to them without bothering them.

A wonderful addition to Mowani

A last we managed to visit Kipwe and it was all we expected, really delightful stay. i managed to get to the sundowner summit, well worth the climb a most spectacular sunset and fantastic stars.

We also went on a trip to find the desert elephants, which was one of the highlights of the holiday, when James was kissed on his hand by a little 5 year old elephant who was being mischievous .

Just a wonderful place .

Camp Kipwe review

We only stayed one night but would happily have stayed longer.

The Camp is very imaginatively designed into a boulder strewn hillside with a very a nice sundowner vantage point at the top.

Tremendous experience at Kipwe

We had a delightful experience.

The combination of unique location, excellent cuisine and simply fantastic guiding by "Tafi" made this one of our very best experiences. Tafi was very helpful over a misunderstanding and a determined, dedicated guide.

Well done to management and staff alike.

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.
