Damaraland, Namibia
Camp Kipwe
  • A camp of simplistic elegance with superb scenery

  • 9 rounded organic bedrooms nestled into the boulders

  • An incredibly imaginative camp with a relaxed ambiance

  • A great spot from which to head out on a desert elephant safari

Camp Kipwe is nestled into the boulders in such an organic way that with a passing glance you might not even notice it is there. The 9 cottages and 1 honeymoon suite are each round in shape with large decks wrapping around them to take advantage of the glorious views across the Aba Huab valley. The camp has been created in a way that suggests intimacy and cosiness whilst being surrounded by space and expansive land and sky. There is a refreshing plunge pool resting amongst the rocks for guests to relax around and the bungalow bedrooms are scattered throughout the eco-friendly camp. From the camp you can embark out on a morning game drive in search of the elusive desert dwelling elephants and wonder at the way they have adapted to life here in the endless landscape of Damaraland, or the ancient surroundings of the Aba Huab River might tempt the more energetic into a hike around the incredible terrain.

The main area of the camp consists of a large open-fronted dining room with a terrace on which breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are served. Next to this is the extremely comfortable lounge area in which sofas are dotted around for guests to relax on. There is also an indoor dining room which can be used in the winter and where guests might enjoy watching as the food is prepared in the kitchen in front of them.

Each of the igloo-shaped bungalows is constructed of stone in order to keep temperatures level and has it's own shaded veranda on which guests can bask in the sun. One of the rooms has an area at it's back where a domed tent has been pitched between two boulders and can be used as an additional room to sleep up to two children. The suite is located slightly further away from the rest of the camp giving it an additional sense of privacy and making it a popular choice for honeymooners. Each of the rooms is decorated with comfortable neutral tones to relax guests and the organic theme of the camp is reflected in the furnishings, with the lamps and small tables having been constructed from tree trunks. The partially open to the stars ensuite bathrooms have boulder, cement and rock walls and roofs of rough mopane branches and are lit at night, although showering during the day might be easier.
