The luxury safari lodge is nestled among giant granite boulders in Twyfelfontein in Namibia’s Damaraland, an area renowned for it unusual rock formations and dramatic desert landscape. It is the sister camp of the nearby Mowani Mountain Camp and Onguma Camp in Etosha.
Camp Kipwe’s innovative architecture has been cleverly designed to blend in with the magnificent natural surroundings. This eco-friendly lodge has a relaxed ambience and offers unique accommodation and superb facilities including a delightful lounge area and swimming pool hidden among the rocks. It will appeal to couples and families seeking an intimate and unforgettable retreat in a spectacular location.
The lodge provides ten dome-shaped, thatched bungalows designed with comfort and privacy in mind. Each one features a wrap-around deck and delightful outdoor bathroom built around the boulders and offering magnificent views across Damaraland.
Start your day with an early morning game drive in search of the elusive desert-dwelling elephant, go hiking along the Aba Huab River or visit the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. Back at the camp, relax by the pool as you admire the rugged scenery.
