Set under verdant trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. Guests can truly disconnect, unwind and relax to the sound of rushing water, and explore one of the driest deserts in the world.


Respectful interaction with the semi-nomadic Himba community, fascinating nature walks, boating (water  levels permitting), and low-impact guided quad-bike excursions complete the experience.

 

Rooms

The eight chalets are set on elevated decks and crafted in wood, canvas and thatch to create a unique camp that is at one with its surroundings and celebrates the culture of the Himba people. The Ozonganda (Herero, meaning “main area”) affords spectacular views over the Kunene River.



 

Facilities

Situated under large, shady albida trees with uninterrupted views of the Kunene River valley and/or the desert. The main area comprises various dining and lounge areas, sunken viewing decks and bar under thatch and on an elevated woodendeck.



The camp has a reading area with a selection of reference books along with a pool for cooling off in the afternoon heat, in-tent massage treatments (at an additional cost) are also available.


 

Activities

Boating on the Kunene River (water levels permitting) provides guests with the opportunity to venture through the lush riverside oases. Crocodiles and water birds seem out of place in this surreal, lunar-like landscape.


One of the highlights here, guided quad bike excursions through the fragile environs, is conducted with the utmost care along specifically allocated pathways, so as to tread lightly on the dunes and preserve the unique and delicate habitat of this landscape.


In this isolated area, the Himba people continue their traditional  semi-nomadic way of life and, when they are in the area, guests have an opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and customs.


Nature drives in open Land Rovers allow guests to experience the true Namib in its unbridled glory, while walking provides unique opportunities to see the smaller denizens of the desert, from the famous fairy circles to the desert chameleon or take a stroll up and along one of the Namib’s dunes.
