Unique design and construction integrated into a granite boulder hill. Outdoor shower and bathroom. Room tends to heat up during the day and there was AC available but our unit didn't work, no refrigerator. The sunset view top notch with drinks and bites to accompany. There is nice attention to detail in the construction and the camp has the ambiance... More

We spent two nights here very comfortably. Our room was spacious, the outside bathroom intriguing until you got used to it, the sunset view spectacular from the summit bar, the service impeccable, the food excellent. It would be hard to complain about anything and the one little niggle we had and discussed with management I'm sure will be taken care... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Kipwe while travelling from Etosha to Swakopmund, and it wound up being one of our favorite stops on the trip! Our room was simple but very nice and comfortable, and we loved the quirky outdoor bathroom! The grounds of the lodge were beautiful, built between the rocks in a way that you... More

At first sight the hotel appears to be a collection of giant boulders dumped in the middle of a desert. Closer study shows a brilliantly inspired use of space to create a one off masterpiece that has to be enjoyed in person. Reception is both warm and efficient. The rooms have to be seen to be believed, being worth the... More

Camp Kipwe is an amazing place, set amongst huge boulders. Of all the places we'd chosen to stay on our 17-night tour round Namibia, this is the one that promised to be the most magical. We were not disappointed. The rooms are ingeniously built amongst the rocks (the roof of our outdoor bathroom was an overhanging rock) so as not... More

A fantastic location and beautiful lodge built among boulders. Each individual cabin is extremely comfortable large with outdoor bathrooms and wonderful views. I'd highly recommend the desert elephant drive - it is a full day trek, but spending over an hour watching and tracking a herd was very exciting. Service is excellent - staff repeatedly washed our car without even... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a 12 night trip around Namibia. Very pleased that we opted to add the spare night we had here. Its an amazing place. The location is fantastic with the rooms set within the rocks. It has one of the best bars in the world - on the top of the rock - great... More

What a fantastic location! The rooms are beautifully positioned amongst the boulders and are very comfortable although you will need to keep a/c on during the night in the summer as the room gets very hot! The outside bathrooms are superb but maybe a little chilly in the winter when temps will be closer to freezing? Lovely plunge pool. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was marvelous. The camp is beautifully integrated in the nature. The rooms are great and the foods was nice. The bar on the top of the hill gives an amazing view over the area. We had a lovely guided tour to see the dessert elephants. If you visit this area, I would... More
