Camp Kipwe ('Kipwe' means 'blessed' in Swahili) is utterly unique, built creatively into the large granite boulders of the area. Staying here, you feel part of the environment, looking out at the magnificent scenery. The rooms are round in shape, with large outside decks and partially open bathrooms adjoining the bedrooms. The walls have an organic feel and are made from boulder, cement and rock, while the roofs are rough mopane branches. Hot water is supplied by wood-burning 'donkey' boilers.
The central area of the camp is raised and comprises four thatched domes - the reception area and curio shop, dining room, lounge and bar all with amazing views toward the Aba Huab riverbed. An outside boma area provides a great spot for fire-cooked meals. Spend time relaxing in the central sitting area, furnished with wood and cane chairs, a leather couch, rough hewn chunks of wood used as small tables, tree trunk supports and woven lights hanging elegantly from the thatch roofs.
Cool off in the small swimming pool, which is built into the rocks and boasts stunning 360 degree views. Activities at the camp include nature drives with the possibility of seeing the desert-adapted elephants in the dry season, Twyfelfontein excursions to the rock engravings and guided walks in front of the camp with Kipwe's experienced guides.
