Perched atop the huge granite boulders typical of Damaraland, Camp Kipwe offers a refreshing perspective on traditional safari life. Overlooking the expansive landscape, the camp is nestled among the boulders, facing out onto superb scenery. Incorporating the massive boulders, smaller red basalt rocks and mopane trees of the area into its design, it blends into the breathtaking scenery of the region. The eight guest rooms are round in shape, with large outside decks opening up onto panoramic views. With their rock walls and rough mopane wood roofs, the magnificent bathrooms are open to the scenic vistas.
Set in four thatched domes, the reception, curio shop, dining room, lounge and bar create natural areas for mingling, all with incredible views towards the Aba Huab riverbed. Delectable meals are served under starry skies in the outside boma. Activities include nature drives and excursions to the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein.
What we love about Camp Kipwe
- Shower in the light of the full moon in the semi-open bathroom.
- Enjoy nature drives with the possibility of seeing the desert-adapted elephants.
- Take in the tranquillity and reconnect with your inner self – “Kipwe” means “blessed” in Swahili!
