Camouflaged in the reddish-brown rocks it nestles against, Camp Kipwe is an elegant and intimate camp with sweeping views of the Aba Huab valley of Damaraland.
The dome-shaped rooms blend harmonious into the rocks like a secluded cave with all the amenities and comforts of a luxury hotel. There are nine rooms at Camp Kipwe and one sprawling, thatched-roof suite. The rooms also have other natural touches like rocks embedded in the floor and animals carved in the wood to mimic the famous engravings found in the area. Each room comes with two twin beds that can be converted to one double, air-conditioning, and an outdoor shower with a private outdoor sink and flush toilet. The elegant Kipwe Suite features a lounge, double bedroom, and both a romantic indoor and outdoor bath. There is also a private veranda with chairs for enjoying the stunning views.
The camp is located within the Twyfelfontein Conservancy in the Damaraland area. The region is famous for its geology and unusual rock formations. The Conservancy sits within one of the driest and most desolate regions in all of Africa. Because water is scarce, this scrub land is home to a varied assortment of desert-adapted wildlife including elephants and black rhinos. Gemsbok, kudu, springbok, Hartman’s mountain zebra, southern giraffe, gemsbok, lion, cheetah, and spotted and brown hyena call this desert home too. Birdwatchers will delight in the over 240 species recorded here.
