Kobo kobo mountain camp

Kobo Kobo Hills is a rustic guest farm, set on 8,000ha of private land at the foot of the Khomas Hochland. It can be accessed from the gravel road that runs south of Karibib along the C32 for 100km into the mountains. Self-drive 4x4 enthusiasts can use the C28 via the Bosua Pass.

It is an ideal destination for self-drive tourists who prefer to get off the beaten track a bit when travelling to or from to Swakopmund or Walvis Bay. For those seeking remote team-building excursions, dangling from a rock face on a piece of rope or just for 2 or 3 days of complete relaxation, peace and quiet, then Kobo Kobo Hills is for you.

Those on a self drive holiday in Namibia who desire a warm welcome, simple luxury and great food off the beaten track should head to Kobo Kobo Hills Mountain Camp. This quiet and intimate gem on the back route form Windhoek to Swakopmund / Walvis Bay is accessed by a final 10km drive along a farm track, comfortably reached by sedan or 4x4 vehicle.

This popular guest farm is set on 8,000ha of private land at the foot of the Khomas Hochland. Whether you are looking for a couple of days of complete relaxation, part of a remote team-building excursion or prefer to dangle from a rock face on a piece of rope then Kobo Kobo is for you. There is no cellphone reception here adding to the tranquillity of the camp. The rustic and eco-friendly experience is enhanced by the use of paraffin and solar power for lighting and hot water. Excellent meals are cooked on an open fire and all meals are are served in the lapa, an open dining area. After dinner the night sky is literally awash with stars and constellations, providing fascinating and interesting stargazing observations.

The swimming pool offers a welcome respite from the hot afternoon sun, especially after a long, dusty drive. Game can be viewed from the floodlit waterhole from the comfort of a viewing area. Visitors by day and night include mountain zebra, kudu, jackals, warthog, springbok, oryx and an array of interesting and colourful Namibian birds. Exchange travel stories and adventures with other guests in the lounge.

Guests stay in 8 thatched cottages, creatively built amongst granite boulders. Each one blends in beautifully with the surrounding environment. The elevated setting of Kobo Kobo Hills Mountain Camp allows for cross-breeze ventilation in your room, therefore negating the need for mosquito nets or fans.

During the day, there is as much climbing and hiking as you can manage. Photographic opportunities abound and although wildlife sightings present themselves en-route, they are never guaranteed. Game drives and guided walks can also be organized.

We fall in love with this beautifull lodge, nested into the granit boulders, bordered by a river bed and a large valley. Most of all: Kirsten, the owner of the place, has a natural-born sense of hospitality.

We designed a stop at Kobo Kobo as a rest between the Skeleton Coast and Namib Desert. We have been completely and positively surprised by the personalised attentions of the manager who cooked and shared with us the food and entertained us during the evenings.


Kobo Kobo is 8km from the 1985 road.
