See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Serra Cafema

Situated on the banks of the Kunene River, which forms Namibia’s border with Angola, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote destinations in southern Africa.

The camp comprises nine canvas and thatched chalets, built on raised decks beneath large, shady trees. Each has an en-suite bathroom and a private deck with views of the river valley and the nearby hills. Walkways link the chalets to the dining area, bar and small swimming pool. Activities at Serra Cafema include exploring the beautiful desert landscape in open 4x4 vehicles. Oryx, springbok and ostrich are a common sight, while the river has a large population of crocodiles, and the thin strip of greenery either side attracts many bird species. Other highlights are quad-biking on the dunes, boating on the river and guided walks in the mountain and river valleys.

Why We Love It

The surrounding area is home to the Himba people, a semi-nomadic tribe who still live a largely traditional lifestyle - guests can visit a Himba village for a glimpse of their way of life.
