Serra Cafema Camp

Set amongst ancient albida trees on the banks of the Kunene River, the only permanent source of water in the region, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. Rapids just below camp provide a calming ambiance; guests fall asleep to the sound of rushing water at night, and explore one of the driest deserts in the world by day. The camp has eight canvas and thatched chalets on decks. Attention to detail, elevated decks and simple structures of wood, canvas and thatch create a camp that is at one with its surroundings. The dining room, bar and pool look out over the Kunene River. The variety of activities exploring the breathtaking landscape includes informative nature drives and boating on the Kunene River, where crocodiles and waterbirds can be seen in this moonscape environment. Walking in the remote mountain and river valleys are also a highlight, as is a visit to a Himba settlement, should members of one of the last truly nomadic tribes in Africa be in the area.
