Serra Cafema is located on the banks of the Kunene River in the Hartmann Valley. Undoubtedly amongst the most remote camps in Southern Africa, Serra Cafema is only reached by a three hour light aircraft flight from Windhoek.
Serra Cafema is an intimate, peaceful camp with a unique mix of rustic and luxury elements nestled amongst the Albida trees on the banks of the Kunene. Accommodation consists of 8 riverside Meru-style canvas and thatched villas on spacious, elevated decks blending into the surroundings. Each fully furnished tent has an en suite bathroom, ceiling fan and mosquito nets.
Serra Cafema also has a luxurious Honeymoon villa, with possibly the best view of all. Early booking is essential owing to its popularity. Families can be accommodated by opening up adjoining units.
The main living area of the camp includes indoor and outdoor dining areas, a sunken lounge, library, curio shop and swimming pool, all sharing views of the Kunene River.
Activities at Serra Cafema revolve around the exploration of the surrounding Namib Desert sands and the lush oases along the river, a journey of contrasts. Informative nature drives and carefully guided quad bike excursions through the fragile dunes allow guests to experience the Namib in all its glory. The utmost care is taken to tread lightly on the dunes and preserve the unique and delicate habitats of this landscape.
Boating on the Kunene River provides guests with the opportunity to venture through the lush riverside oases. Walking in the remote mountain and river valleys is also a highlight, as is a visit to a Himba settlement - one of the last true nomadic people in Africa.
