We all stayed in converted boulders, as this area had many boulders to navigate. The showers are completely outside which is really cool, but the rooms had very little light from no access to windows. The food here is great, albeit slow. There is an awesome sunset sight if you are able to climb to get to it....just order your... More

Placed amongst huge boulders the setting is incredible and accommodation very private. Due to innovative design, our room was a little dark inside but comfortable. The level of service and food was exceptional. Would highly recommend.

This camp is beautifully located within a rocky hill in the middle of the most stunning landscapes of the region. The architecture is such that the camp is virtually invisible as it blends in so well in its environment. Each individual hut is roughly a half dome with an attached outdoor WC and shower facility. This in my view has... More

We have been here for two nights. It was a fabulous experience. The room was perfectly furnished, the beds very good, everything perfectly clean and the best of all is the open air bathroom. Food in the restaurant was very good. Here I want to point out, that the meat (Oryx) was perfectly grilled and everything had a good taste.... More

We stayed 2 nights at Camp Kipwe in Feb 2015 as part of an excellent self drive tour around Namibia arranged for us by the superb Imagine Africa tour company (whom we would fully recommend to anyone). You cannot do better than stay for a while at this place. The accommodation is in individual rooms set into the boulders of... More

The staff are superb - all so knowledgeable and professional and clearly taking such... More

My husband and I stayed here during a 4 month trip to several countries and it was one of our most memorable experiences. The location is stunning - the hotel is nestled in the middle of giant boulders in an incredible scenery of hills that you can see for miles. The food at the lodge was great and the staff... More

During our trip throughout Namibia, we stumbled across Camp Kipwe, a delightful lodge nestled in boulders in the Namib desert. Staff were amazing and service was brilliant, food was good, and the setting idyllic. We arrived in January and it was very hot - the small stone chalets are hot at night if you don't have the fan on, but... More
