Set under verdant trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in Southern Africa. The Kunene river stands in total contrast to the arid surrounding desert and rugged mountains making this a very special location. Guests can truly disconnect, unwind and relax to the sound of rushing water and explore one of the driest deserts in the world.
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.
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.
