Everything about this place is magic. The lodges, the outside showers and bathroom, the guides, the food, the feel good moments, the staff. This is one of the best places in Namibia. We went on a tour by foot with one of the guides who explained us how to track animals and elephants and the next day we went to... More

Camp Kipwe is an amazing place pretty much of the middle of nowhere yet close to Namibian secrets - birds around are quite a find for photographers. The pool is another relaxing area. The service and environment make is so comfortable and special you feel at home - even though you (or at least I) do not shower or go... More

I so enjoyed this beautiful spot! Each bungalow is tucked into the natural surroundings with such skill and care. Be sure not to miss sunsetters on the hill top. I could happily spend a week in this stunning hotel.

If you've looked at the Camp Kipwe website, it's exactly as you'd expect it to be. The rooms are exceptionally private, and the view is outstanding. Everything is clean, and there's a five-star feel to most areas, despite it being placed in the most improbably remote location you could imagine. The outdoor bathrooms, while on the face of it a...

This lodge is one of the best places we ever stayed. The landscape is great and the hotel fits nicely into it. The rooms are little round huts. for us the most amazing feature was the bathroom: it was outside amidst huge boulders, perfectly designed. The sundowner spot they have there is another highlight. you climb up on top of... More

Our journey through Namibia this July was spectacular. We liked everything we did during our journey across the country. But the experience at the Kipwe Camp was absolutely awesome. The place is indescribably beautiful and unique. The Kipwe Camp is magnificent: perfect architecture for the environment, fantastic service, very interesting tours and exceptional cuisine. We loved it!!!

Camp Kipwe is nestled amidst granite boulders in the semi arid red basalt rocky terrain. The camp has been constructed into the rocks and the... More

Had the pleasure to stay at Camp Kipwe for a few nights. Wonderful, clean and pleasant place to stay. Comfortable huts and excellent food. "Glamping" at its best. Enjoy the view and the peace and quiet. I strongly recommend the morning drive for desert elephant gaming. Do not miss it!

So glad that my travel operator (Edward from Namibia Tours and Safaris) switched us to this lodge as it was quite possibly the highlight of our Namibian trip (other than Deadvlei of course). We only had 1 night here which was such a shame as we couldn't get enough of the stunning views of the Huab valley. You can see... More
