As soon as we arrived I could tell this would be a great experience. Staff to greet us, take our luggage to the room, welcome drink, info given re the meals, place to see the sunset etc. Room very nice, spacious, lovely bedding, bathroom very different as partly outside. There is also here a coffee and cake stand where you... More

The best place we stayed by far. I was bit concerned by the higher price conpared to other lodges we stayed, but it's totally worthy. Do not even think about missing the sunset upstairs. Dinner was fabulous, our room had a private open balcony (a stone with chairs and lamp), where we slept watching the stunning sky.

Camp Kipwe is a fabulous spot, nestled in a very picturesque region of Namibia, with boulders and rugged vistas. Our cottage was well appointed and we particularly loved the outdoor washroom... showering and toileting outside, under the stars was a fun experience. The staff is great and the food delicious. We particularly enjoyed our talks with the servers and bartender,... More

There is not much else to say about Camp Kipwe but EXCELLENT! Awesome! We very much enjoyed our stay here, coming from Cape Cross, heading for Etosha. Unfortunately, due to our tight travel schedule, we could only stay one night and thus we could not do the Elephant tour (as recommended by others). Our Bungalow was decorated in a modern... More

We arrived at Camp Kipwe ready for a comfortable night and a refreshing shower and that's exactly what we got, and more. The location is stunning, the rooms are beautifully appointed, and the outdoor shower is a treat. We had a wonderful meal and sundowners up at the lookout. And we booked in for the elephant trip upon arrival, and... More

This is an exceptional lodge by any standards. Great rooms, efficient airconditioning, delightfully designed outside shower room, basin etc. Quiet, relaxed, understated luxury lodge in the middle of nowhere. Not much game seen as it had rained quite a lot in the last few weeks but we did see the famous desert elephants which were about one hours drive away.... More

It was an amazing experience to stay here! Our travel agency had booked this place for us so we did not know what to expect and were so happy to arrive here at this amazing location after driving for hours through the desert. Service was wonderful. Location totally unique and the rooms really nice. Food was great and wine selection... More

We were two families and we stayed at Kipwe for one night on the way to Etosha from Swakopmund. The location and the rooms are incredible. We did no go on the elephant excursion, but we had been promised a nature walk at the time of booking. This never happened - when we asked about it, we were told that... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay at Kipwe in mid-December. Pre-Xmas it was very quiet and peaceful there and the weather couldn't have been better. Andy and Adrian did their very best to ensure that we had a lovely time, which we did. Very nice food, friendly staff and unique lodging made for a great time at Kipwe. Also Chloe... More
