Camp Kipwe

Huddled in the rocks in the Abu Huab valley is the hidden gem of Camp Kipwe. Quirky, natural touches add a perfect finish to this unique oasis in the desert.

  • Quirky chalets built from natural materials
  • Game drives in rugged Damaraland
  • Search for the desert-adapted elephant
  • Visit the Organ Pipes and Fire Mountain
  • Twyfelfontein has excellent Bushman rock paintings

Camp Kipwe is situated in the Twyfelfontein area of Namibia, an area renowend for unusal rock formations and fascinating geology.  The camp has been built huddled between dark red, rounded boulders and is almost invisible as the style of the buildings blends into the surroudings.  The buildings have been constructed from rock, are round in shape and have domed thatch roofs, there is something a little 'Flintstones' about them but they come with all the modern touches you would expect.

The rooms are built from natural materials which include mopane wood and local red basalt stones, the result is a natural and organic feel. There are 9 standard chalets and one suite.  The standard chalets are anything but standard, they are unique, quirky and a fun place to stay with a private veranda overlooking the rugged and beautiful scenery. The en-suite facilites enjoy an outdoor shower with similar views to the veranda.

The lounge in the main lodge has a relaxing appeal with different areas of soft seating, an ideal spot to while away an hour or two chatting. Meals and drinks are served in the bar and restuarant while enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding mountains.  The sunsets simply compliment the scene. There is also a curio shop and a very welcome swimming pool, perfect for a refreshing dip after a morning game drive. 

Activities from camp include elephant nature trips in a 4x4, exploring the surrounding area in search of the desert-adapted elephant for which the area is known. There are also visits to Twyfelfontein to see the Bushman paintings, Burnt Mountain and the Organ Pipes, a strange rock formation, a result of thousands of years of geological activity. It's also possible to enjoy guided walks around the lodge, the length of the walk may vary according to those partaking.
