The chalets that are nestled amongst the boulders are very unique and provide an amazing view over the hills and plains. The lounge and dining areas are beautiful and comfortable, a great place to enjoy your book with a cold drink in hand. The rooms are essentially one room (with air con) with an adjoining outdoor bathroom, really enjoyed the... More

This luxury safari camp is truly unique and situated in a spectacular setting overlooking the Damaraland plains (home to the desert-adapted elephants among other wildlife). The cabins are built into a Flintstones-like boulder mound, so that you feel like you're embedded into the rock outcroppings. The bathrooms are outside, private, sheltered by the same large boulders. Showering at night is... More

Beehive-style chalets set amongst boulders with panoramic views over the rocky kopjes , valleys and hills. Outdoor bathroom - exceptional privacy!! Very friendly service. Excellent food. Very comfortable lounge area with stunning views. There is a terrific sundowner view point - 100 steps to climb to it. Drinks and nibbles were brought up to us and it was so nice... More

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
