we choose this beautyful lodge (again) also because of the location - very close to the Abu Huab River, where the desert elephant are around. Nice rooms, friendly staff, good food and wines - just great !

Amazing location. Spectacular landscape. Enjoy the views and sunsets from the hill top. We loved the meals, all very tasteful and well presented. The employees were all very very friendly and welcoming. Very reasonable prices for drinks and excursions. Our guide Taffi was very professional was able to track down the herd of desert elephants and we even saw a...

This was my 2. visit and I must say, it was not that fabulous at all. Obviously the previous manager left and one can feel and see this on every corner. Yes, the lodge is still beautiful but it is not "smooth running" anymore. Apparently the manager of the bigger sister camp mowani are now also running this place, that's...

Dear Brenda, I am so sorry to hear that your second stay with us was not up to expectations. Staff become family when working so closely together in the bush and management changes are always difficult to manage. I am sorry to hear the team was not operating cohesively and appreciate your comments about management. I assure you this will...

Wow! An extraordinary hotel, comprising a dozen or so luxury huts dotted around a "kopje'', a massive pile of boulders. Everything about Camp Kipwe is impressive, from the central meeting and dining area to the huts, and particularly the view from the bar at the top of the kopje (some of the best sundowners we had). Also very memorable was...

A great property overall. The rooms had fabulous view over the savanah .The food was some of the best we had in Namibia. Great sundown lookout point as well. not a huge amount to do at the lodge and the rock swimming pool was not that useable except to cool down. Rooms were cosy and ac worked well.

Camp Kipwe is remote and set in idyllic surroundings. We were housed in stone rondavels with an open to the elements shower, toilet and handbasin which might not suit everyone. Each one has its own private stoep where you can sit and take in the amazing beauty. All the staff were very friendly. We were invited to climb the 95...

Well laid out in a beautiful setting. My only problem as a disabled person was with the steps to the main area but I then found a way round which was manageable (it would have been nice if this had been pointed out to me). The food was great especially Xmas dinner!

Peaceful, calm and charming place. The people are very nice and the service is great. The bathrooms are outside, so take a shower before dinner or you can't see and it is cold. The is AC which is needed. I did get the feeling that the housekeeping staff doesn't really enjoy their job. But, the rest of the service while...

The camp Kipwe location is really great. The cabins are nice with shower and toilet outside, but we don't like to be watched by the staff. Cleanness: I caught the houskeeping when they used our towels to clean the floor and then hang them up for reuse. Sure, i complained and got new ones, but ... The management would do...

Perfect design lodge with an eye for every detail ! Beautifull setting between rocks, rooms have nice views and are nicely decorated. Perfect outdoor dining, perfect common areas, design rock pool, hilltop sundowner cocktails, outdoor showers in big iglo shaped rooms. Only minor point is the follow up of the staff. We were in a 30% occupancy of the lodge...
