Awesome!

WE loved it! Everyone was so helpful, welcoming, full of smiles. The room was delicious and I personally loved the outdoor bathroom.

They badgered Bidvest to hurry with the flat tire (which was very fast) and continued to follow up and make sure everything was taken care of.

Fantastic drive to see the desert elephants

Comfortable chalet with a unique construction incorporating the rocks and boulders just as they lay. Our first experience of an outside shower and toilet. Food very good.

Took the morning drive to find the elephants and were not disappointed. Spent nearly two hours with them as they walked to water, bathed and dusted themselves. Many bird species around the camp.

Camp Kipwe Food let it down

The best thing about Camp KIpwe was the location and the amazing room built into the rocks.

The bar at the top of the hill was a great place to watch the sunset from. the food let the camp down compared to everywhere else we stayed at in Namibia. Dinner was mediocre with a poor starter and fairly tough steak. At the breakfast the fruit at the buffet was not replenished for example.

We did not take part in their activities

Up close to the Elephants

Camp Kipwe is typical of many Namibian lodges - good location (a bit of a drive from the main road), well appointed room with a view, warm welcome, a sundowner spot, a couple of activities, the main one at Kipwe being a nature drive to see Elephants, and a nice dinner and breakfast.

The stand out elements of the typical lodge 'package' were the lodge design, the sundowner spot and the nature drive, where we got very close to the elephants (much closer and quieter than Etosha)

Camp Kipwe review

This is a really quirky and stunning camp.

It is hard to even see it as you drive up as it has been so clearly created within the landscape. The rooms are great but the outside shower, bathroom and verandah really make it.

The food was excellent and the sundowner bar at the top of the hill a delight.

The trips to the Rock Carvings and the Desert Elephants are well worth it.

Our favourite stop. Exotic location.

This was one of the highlights of our holiday. accommodation was spectacular as were the views.

As ever the staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. following the desert elephants was such a privilege with a great guide.

Sorry we did not have more time there.

Unique, wonderful Camp Kipwe

Our 2 night stay at Camp Kipwe was the highlight of our Namibia trip. Unique accommodation cleverly blending into the rocks; loved the outside bathroom! All the staff were so helpful - a special thanks to Rosie our guide who took us on a magical trip tracking desert adapted elephants.

To be amongst a herd of these magnificent creatures was a dream come true for me. A sundowner atop the kopje watching the setting sun was a truly special experience. Dinner followed outdoors on the wooden terraces and was sublime.

Two members of our group are vegetarians and were catered for superbly. Fantastic stay.

Hidden gem!

What a wonderful place to stay. Our favourite. Nestled in the rocks with expansive views whether you're relaxing outside your room, chilling in the lounge area, taking a sundowner or sitting by the plunge pool.

Lots of staff and nothing is too much trouble. They even treated us to a special meal for our wedding anniversary and a special thank you must go to Stanley for being so attentive and adding to our stay.

Rosie was our guide to track the dessert elephants and boy did we strike lucky! Such an enthusiastic guide and she really did track them, enabling us to get SO close but equally passing on her wisdom as to how to be around them and to not "out stay" our welcome.

Camp Kipwe review

Camp Kipwe is very relaxing venue with a lovely small pool set amongst the rocks. Our room was like a large round hobbit home with a brilliant outside shower and bathroom.

The staff were all superb and we thoroughly enjoyed quality of the food in a super elevated dining room. The bar area and lounge area had a variety of very comfy chairs to while away a few hours. This was one of the best venues for sundowners on our trip and it is definitely worthwhile walking to the top (5 mins) where you will be greeted by the most amazing views.....as well as a bar and staff serving canapés.

The only thing that we feel detracts from this venue is the occasional smell of burnt wood from the wood burners that heat the water for each of the rooms.
