“Serra Cafema is located in the extreme north-west of Namibia on the banks of the Kunene River in the Hartmann Valley. The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in this region, creating a lush oasis along its banks. For this reason, you cannot beat the location of this peaceful and intimate camp of just eight chalets. A particular highlight here is the cultural interaction with the semi-nomadic Himba community; far from the main tourist paths, it offers a sensitive and authentic experience.”
Serra Cafema is an intimate, peaceful camp with a unique mix of rustic and luxury elements nestled amongst the shady Albida trees on the banks of the Kunene. Rapids just below camp provide a calming ambiance with guests often lulled into dreamland by the gurgling waters.
Accommodation at Serra Cafema consists of eight riverside Meru-style canvas and thatched chalets on spacious, elevated decks. Each fully furnished tent has an en suite bathroom, ceiling fan and mosquito nets. Late afternoon spent lounging on the front deck soaking up the vistas of this contrasting wilderness is a must.
Main lodge area offers a swimming pool, and there’s the chance to enjoy holistic therapies at the Bush Spa.Informative nature drives and carefully guided quad bike excursions through the fragile dunes allow guests to experience the true Namib, meanwhile, boating on the Kunene River provides guests with the opportunity to venture through the lush riverside oases.
