Very Expensive for what it offered in comparison to previous accommodation we stayed at, no privacy in outside shower, disturbed while sitting on veranda, location is beautiful though, service was friendly and food was excellent.

A lodge with a superb location where the "rooms" consists of spacious domes built in concrete. All of them are high standard with own little decking outside to relax and enjoy the view. Reception and restaurant area are very nice with service minded, but not the most observant staff. Simply love the nice bar at the top, perfect place to... More

Great to hear you loved your stay with us! I especially like the drinks spot on top of the boulders as well. I don't think it gets much better than that! More

The setting of Camp Kipwe is absolutely breathtaking! Some of the staff was a bit shy/impersonal, but our guide Taffy was awesome. The elephant drive was a highlight of our Namibia trip. Such majestic animals, absolutely amazing. The food here was very, very good and we loved to cool down in the little pool. It is very nice to walk... More

The location is stunning, the desert elephant safari was excellent, with Taffy our guide proving informative and knowledgeable. The rooms are large and clean, the beds are comfortable and the individual wood fired boilers provide plenty of hot water. Unfortunately, for us, the Kipwe (graded as 1st class by our agent) didn't quire live up to that. We have travelled... More

The setting, the ambience and design are breathtaking. It's very close to the main attractions of the region. Excellent base. Can you have as much pleasure for half the price elsewhere? For sure. It's expensive and best savoured and enjoyed for its own beauty rather than just using it as a B&B. For the price the room could have been... More

After a long, hot drive from Swakopmund, Camp Kipwe was a welcome rest stop. The rooms are well-appointed, once you get your head around the outside bathroom. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food and service were excellent. Make sure you do the tours - desert-adjusted elephants and the Twyfelfontein rock carvings. Taffy the guide is great... More

If you are ever in the environs of Camp Kipwe you must experience this unique lodging! It is hard to describe, in the middle of barren desert, rondels a have been forged in and around a rocky outcrop! It has all been done beautifully, and sympathetically, blended in so well that it is hard to see from any distance. The... More

Camp Kipwe ia a wonderfully constructed lodge with rooms and facilities integrated in a kopje in the most charming way. The service and the whole atmosphere of the place is excellent. Herds of springbok and occasionally elephants can be viewed from your private balcony. We only stayed one night but would have loved to stay longer.
