WHERE THE ROCKS SHARE THEIR SECRETS

Huddled in the rocks, with sweeping views across the Aba Huab valley, Camp Kipwe is full of surprises, starting when guests first arrive. It appears as if rocks have tumbled down the hill to reveal this gem of a camp. The setting is one of intimacy and space. An inviting lounge area, where birds fly in to enjoy the water seeping from the rocks, a refreshing swimming pool nestled in the rocks and a scattering of bungalows complete this eco friendly camp.

SUSTAINABLE ECO TOURISM

We love our people and pride ourselves in being a part of the conservancy we operate in. We believe our community, wildlife and environment should continue to thrive beyond our time here. We invest in the backbone of our structure, our people, through training. Staying true to ‘umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu’, we are currently in the process of setting up a community vegetable garden so as to purchase our vegetables from a community-based vegetable garden in the conservancy as well as support other projects. Being cognizant that we aren’t the only ones that inhibit this space, we expanded the waterhole to ensure a herd of 18 elephants have enough to drink when they pay us a visit. Our interest spans far beyond our conservancy, and we proudly support the desert lion project. To preserve our natural environment, we planted indigenous plants which are harvested and replanted around the lodge and waterhole. We ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ all our refuse and use energy saving bulbs as well as solar geysers to reduce our carbon footprint. The lodge was also designed with this mind – a high roof and ventilation ducts - results in a temperature change from inside and outside, of no more than 5 degrees on hot days.
