Camp Kipwe
Damaraland

Camp Kipwe is a starkly beautiful and magnificently remote luxury lodge nestled within the giant granite boulders of Namibia's arid Twyfelfontein Conservancy, home to many ancient Bushman etchings. Acting as a cave-like sanctuary, this dome-roofed eco lodge is like an extension of the rocks themselves, surrounded by expansive views of Damaland’s dramatic desert landscape and the transient Aba Huab riverbed. Sister camp to the nearby Mowani Mountain Camp and Onguma Camp in Etosha, Camp Kikwe is a hidden gem for couples and families looking for an intimate and unusual safari in a breath-taking setting.

Each of the nine thatched bungalows are tastefully decorated in understated but quirky style, with natural touches like rocks embedded in the floor, animals carved into the wood (mirroring the region’s famous engravings), partially outdoor bathrooms and wrap-around wooden decks overlooking the spectacular landscape. The camp has one suite, which is a large thatched-roofed space with an air-conditioned lounge with satellite television, a double room with en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath, and a large deck where meals can be served in complete privacy.

The atmosphere at Camp Kipwe is relaxed and the facilities include a large alfresco dining area at the centre of the camp, a delightful lounge, a bar and reception with a fireplace to warm up in the evenings, and a swimming pool hidden amongst the rocks to cool down in during the day. Guests can also climb the 100 steps to the camp’s sundowner viewpoint to watch the large African sun disappear.

Camp Kipwe is perfectly placed for enjoying the unique activities of this region – head off on a very special safari to search for desert-adapted elephants; travel back in time to explore the geological rarities and rock engravings which have made Twyfelfontein Namibia’s first World Heritage Site; hike along the Aba Huab River and enjoy guided nature walks to discover the flora and fauna endemic to this area; and explore the mysterious Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
