Blessings come in all shapes and sizes and Camp Kipwe has all the features of a blessed camp in Damaraland.
The camp is nestled among boulders, facing out onto superb scenery. Incorporating stone, small red basalt rocks and mopane branches, it has a natural, organic feel.
The nine air-conditioned rooms (and one spacious suite) are round in shape – an unusual appealing novelty – and the outside deck chairs are perfectly placed for admiring the view. The partially open bathrooms adjoining the bedrooms have boulder, cement and rock walls, and roofs of rough mopane branches, introducing a local Damara touch. Showering under the stars and a waxing moon is a simple magical experience we partake in much too rarely, and at Kipwe we are given the opportunity to luxuriate in starlight.
A small swimming pool built into the rocks and a 360-degree viewpoint of breathtaking beauty , are two attractive outdoor features. Activities at the camp include nature drives with the possibility of seeing desert-adapted elephants; excursions to Twyfelfontein a short drive away to view the thousands- of- years- old hunter-gatherer rock engravings and self-guided walks.
