Serra Cafema


Serra Cafema Camp, one of the most remote camps in all of Southern Africa whose only access is by aircraft, is located in the extreme north-west of Namibia. The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water and creates an oasis along its banks surrounded by rugged mountains and sand dunes. Serra Cafema shares this region with the wonderful and colourful Himba people who are some of the last true nomadic people of Africa. The camp is situated under big shady Albida trees overlooking the Kunene River and comprises 9 canvas and thatched chalets on decks raised off the ground, each with its own en-suite bathroom. Other facilities include a small swimming pool, dining room and bar. At night the gurgling of water can be heard from the cataract downstream, while in stark contrast, during the day, guests spend their time exploring one of the planet’s driest deserts. Activities include enjoying the breathtaking landscape scenes with Springbok, Ostrich and Oryx dotted here and there, traversing the sand dunes in 4×4 Land Rovers and boating on the Kunene River where we can watch for the Kunene crocodiles. Walking in the remote mountain and river valleys are also a highlight. Serra Cafema is often visited by the native Ovahimba families who live in the nearby vicinity, which gives guests the opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and traditions. One of the highlights of Serra Cafema is the carefully guided quad-bike excursions through the massive sand dunes to the west of the camp.
