Camp Kipwe review

Very comfortable chalets kept beautifully cool in the desert sun. Outdoor bathrooms with breathtaking views of the night sky. Great service and best food that we experienced in lodges across Namibia. Wonderful rock plunge pool.

Blessed with good guides

Beautifully designed, intimate, well maintained luxury camp, an oasis in the desert among the boulders. Excellent in every way.

Especially noteworthy is our guide on the nature drive, Taffy (not sure about spelling his name). Not only knowledgeable but wonderfully passionate about the area, eloquent and a person fun to be with. Taffy shows and teaches (!) love and respect for the desert adopted Elephants and we are glad vi had the privilege to visit the Elephants with him.

There is just one little remark; When we arrived in the afternoon it was 40 deg. Celsius and not long after there was fire burning by every room. There should be another, cheaper environment friendly alternative to fire to heat the water for showers in the summer; just a black container and/or pipes with water in and the sun would do rest.

Just the most amazing accommodation

A stunning place with such original bungalows. The outdoor en suite bathrooms are amazing. The staff were very attentive and the food excellent.

We did a morning trip to see the desert elephants and managed to see a large group of about fourteen drinking at one of the waterholes as well as a separate sighting of a mother with two babies.

I also did a trip in the afternoon to see the rock engravings at Twyfelfontain which was great but very hot!

The guide Tafi was very engaging, knowledgeable and his tracking skills were superlative.

Camp Kipwe

This lodge is on the edge of desert area and the accommodation and food was fine.

The game drive with Daffy (or Taffy or Tuffy) was brilliant as he quickly tracked the desert-adapted elephants which we were able to approach very closely and seemed unfazed by our proximity, especially the the young calves.

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.
