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.

A great stay in the great outdoors.

Everything is geared towards ensuring you have a great stay and nothing is too much for the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The the rooms are perfectly situated but can leave you feeling that you are in pizza oven, even though they have air-con. Nevertheless, the game drive we went on (with the local guide, Willy) was one of the best we have ever experienced!

Wonderful environment and cam

The camp was exquisite, the situation amazing and the staff so friendly and interested. Rooms delightful and we all loved our semi outdoor bathrooms. Public areas were beautiful and comfortable , the sundowner spot amazing and the pool for afternoon siestas really special.

The food was fantastic and service impeccable.

We all really loved our time here and could have stayed longer just to enjoy the beauty of it.

Great sunsets from the hilltop viewpoint

The accommodation in huts with outside bathroom facilities need to be experienced along with the views and sunsets from the camp.

Great guide for the visits to see the Desert Elephants and Petroglyphs. The visit to the elephants was particularly memorable and during this we had an opportunity to see the magnificent landscape of Damaraland finishing up with a drive up a dried up riverbed where we saw this magnificent Kudu bull.

Just a quick point the C35 was particularly rough, not just because of our problem on that road, the guide at Kipwe commented on it as well.

We loved Camp Kipwe

What a fantastic lodge, cleverly built into the rocks. We were upgraded to the only suite for the one night we were there, which was a wonderful treat. Elevated accommodation with a vast bedroom and lounge area, outside bath with a private view and large decking area. We were hot and tired after a long drive and decided to postpone sightseeing to make the most of it (plus the all inclusive bar) .

The food was delicious, as we found throughout our visit to Namibia. The only thing we would have liked in hindsight was a mosquito net. The mosquitos were a bit pesky despite the insect repellant and 'Doom' spray, and I got quite badly bitten. That aside we would have loved to have stayed longer.
