Located within close proximity to the Aba-Huab River, Camp Kipwe is a small and intimate bush lodge located in Namibia’s arid yet starkly beautiful Twyfelfontein region. Camp Kipwe is full of surprises, starting when guests first arrive. It appears as if rocks have tumbled down the hill to reveal this gem of a camp. The setting is one of intimacy and space. An inviting lounge area, where birds fly in to enjoy the water seeping from the rocks, a refreshing swimming pool nestled in the rocks and a scattering of bungalows complete this eco friendly camp.

Camp Kipwe offers guided nature walks around the Twyfelfontein Conservancy, as well as trips to see the Bushman etchings, the mysterious Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain. Guests can also explore  the surrounding area in a 4×4 vehicle, in search of Namibia’s remaining 600 desert dwelling elephant as well as seeking out the flora and fauna of this fascinating area. Kipwe’s local guides share with their guests an intimate knowledge and respect for the land that they have built up over a lifetime.

Guests can relax at the swimming pool that has been skilfully carved out of the local boulders, blending in perfectly with the natural surroundings  or enjoy time on the private deck, taking in the spectacular surroundings.


9 Bungalows
The twin-bedded bungalows are in the shape of rondavels and have boulder, cement and rock walls ensuring that on entry, feel like a cool secluded cave with outside decks to admire the view. The en-suite, open-air private bathrooms are built amongst the rocks, allowing guests to take advantage of the outdoor weather. Hot water is supplied by wood-burning ‘donkey’ boilers and solar geysers.

Kipwe Suite
The Kipwe Suite is an air-conditioned, luxury elevated thatched suite that has a private lounge equipped with a satellite television and minibar with drinks included. The large double room with king-size bed opens up onto an en-suite open air bathroom with a beautiful bath area.

The Luxury Suites sit atop of the rocky outcrop and feature a large lounge with separate air-conditioned bedroom, and en-suite bathroom before spilling out on to a large deck with spectacular, uninterrupted views across the Damaraland landscape. Equipped with Wi-Fi, a stocked minibar, heated splash pool and private salas to soak up the vistas.
