If you're not looking for it, you might just miss Camp Kipwe.
Discreetly camouflaged into a rounded rocky kopje with equally rounded thatched roofs, the camp is designed to merge harmoniously with the natural environment.
Located within the Twyfelfontein Conservancy of Damaraland, part of Namibia's first World Heritage Site, Camp Kipwe offers breathtaking views of the Aba Huab Valley.
As you wander among the large boulders at Camp Kipwe, you'll find dome-shaped bungalows hidden amongst the rocks, some covered with bright pink and red bougainvillea.
Their unusual design and innovative construction from stone, means the bungalows are climate-controlled to manage Namibia's harsh weather. The whole property has been built out of wood and stone, and most of the furniture has been carved out of local fallen trees.
There are just nine luxurious bungalows, all facing the dry river bed, with shaded verandahs to watch the glorious sunset every evening. The comfortable bedrooms feature a natural design, with white linens and wooden furniture, although you'll also find modern amenities such as air-conditioning and fans.
There's a range of bungalows to suit everyone, from the opulent Luxury Suite, perfect for honeymooners with an outdoor bath and panoramic views of the desert, to the special 'kids tents' which can be pitched at the back of two bungalows.
As you move around the camp, you'll find a gorgeous rock pool hidden between two rocks, with sunloungers where you can keep watch for the brightly coloured lizards who also like to soak up the sun.
You can also kick back on the outdoor terrace, with a plush lounge, comfortable sofas, and a rocky outcrop where drinks are served while you soak up the spectacular sunsets.
