As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

As unassuming as a Damara lean-to and as luxurious as a big-city hotel, Camp Kipwe is another iconic Namibian safari lodge from the ingenious creators of Onguma Tented Camp and Mowani Mountain Camp.

In design Camp Kipwe embraces the distinctive Damaraland scenery: massive red-purple granite boulders piled atop each other form inselbergs separated by carpets of blonde grass peppered with acacia trees.

While every item of furniture and every detail of the decor and construction at Camp Kipwe bears a striking resemblance to the striking scenery of the Aba Huab River Valley, the luxury offered within these wobbly walls raises the royal finger to the stark aridity of Damaraland's endless plains.

Built of stone, thatch and an impressive collection of slightly off-straight tree trunks and branches, Camp Kipwe is at once charming, authentic and something unique in this world of carbon-copied safari lodges.

Camp Kipwe is near Twyfelfontein in Damaraland, Namibia: a place of singular beauty and unimaginable tranquillity. The lodge has just nine dome-suites with polished floors, en suite bathrooms partially open and built into the enclosing boulders and a large deck that opens out to the glorious view across the valley. The Kipwe Suite is a step up from these with a private lounge and open-air bath tub. Take it up another notch and stay in one of two Luxury Suites with an even more spectacular view and a stocked minibar, heated splash pool and private sala. Stay for two nights in a Luxury Suite and they'll throw in your laundry service and a private dining option. The living area is a collection of larger domes, split level decks, a rock pool, lounge, dining area and curio shop.

Facilities

9 bungalows, of which 2 are family rooms plus 2 luxury suites and the Kipwe suite built into the granite boulders with thatch, trees, wooden decking and natural stone; en suite bathrooms with hot running water and flushing toilets; air-conditioning; hairdryer; safe; large private balcony overlooking the Abu Huab Valley; lounge, bar, dining area and viewing deck; swimming pool built into the rocks; curio shop; airstrip

The luxury suites feature a large lounge with separate bedroom, WiFi, minibar, heated splash pool and private sala. Private dining and laundry service (included for stays of 2 nights or longer).

Activities

Damaraland is about nature, scenery and rare desert-adapted wildlife. Activities at Camp Kipwe include scenic tours of the area and visits to the Twyfelfontein rock art; guided walks (pre-arranged on arrival); self-guided walks and game drives in search of the desert-adapted elephant and chance encounters with several species of hardy animals and birds that thrive in Damaraland.
