Camp Kipwe

Camp Kipwe lies in the heart of Damaraland, ideally located a short drive from the local attractions in the area. The camp is nestled amongst an outcrop of giant granite boulders, a stone's throw away from the dry Aba Huab riverbed where desert-adapted elephants often traverse.

Why we like Camp Kipwe

In a country full of spectacular vistas, Camp Kipwe still manages to stand out for its beautiful setting. The camp seems to hide amongst the giant boulders, dwarfed by their magnitude and surrounded by a landscape decorated with shades of oranges, browns and reds. 


Accommodation consists of nine bungalows and one suite. These circular stone bungalows are dotted between the ochre-red boulders of the Damaraland landscape, partially built into the rocks themselves in places. Each one has a lovely shaded veranda in front and an open-air bathroom to one side.

In the centre of the camp lies a large alfresco dining area, bar, lounge and reception with an inviting fireplace nearby to relax beside in the evenings. A refreshing swimming pool and sunset lookout point complete the camp.


  • Game drives in search of the region's elusive desert-adapted elephants
  • Trips to see geological sites, such as Burnt Mountain the Organ Pipes
  • Visits to the ancient petroglyphs of Twyfelfontein, a world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the largest concentration of ancient rock engravings in Africa
  • Self-driven trips to nearby petrified forests and dry riverbeds


Camp Kipwe is in Damaraland, within the Twyfelfontein Conservancy. It is around five hours by road from Windhoek.
