Camp Kipwe, Twyfelfontein
No frills, basic accommodation, but often in the most exciting of places
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Lodge
Nestled between vast granite boulders and looking down the Aba Huab Valley, Camp Kipwe is one of the most dramatically situated camps in all of Namibia, which, given the competition it has, is some statement. The ten rooms at this small, exclusive camp are built amongst the boulders in large dome shaped chalets with thatched rooves to help keep them lovely and cool in summer. The front of the bedroom area can be opened up to the large terrace which is an ideal place to enjoy morning coffee or private dinner. All rooms are air conditioned and the bathrooms are partially open to the elements; the view is really something to behold. At the main part of the lodge there is a restaurant and bar area, along with a swimming pool and sun deck. Activities at Camp Kipwe are varied and are focused very much on sustainable eco-tourism, including interactions with local villages and game drives to see the desert adapted animals of the area. There are also daily trips up to see the fascinating ancient bushmen rock art for which the area is so well known.
