Serra Cafema Camp is located in the extreme north-west of Namibia and has to be the most remote camp in Southern Africa. The Okavango Delta in Botswana is closer to Windhoek than Serra Cafema is to Windhoek. The camps Portuguese name comes from the mountains to the north
that dominate the skyline. We share this region with wonderful Himba people who are some of the last true nomadic people in Africa. The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in the whole region and the river creates a lush oasis along it’s banks surrounded by rugged mountains and sand duness
Under big, shady Albida trees you will find a small, rustic and peaceful camp with all the comforts in fully furnished Meru tents with en-suite bathroom facilities.
The camp’s six tents are raised off the ground. The camp has a small swimming pool, dining room and bar. The camp is located just inland from the Atlantic Ocean and the Skeleton Coast. The cool winds that blow from the Atlantic help to keep the camp cool even in summer..
We spend time in breath-taking landscape scenes in the Hartmann Valley, to the south of the camp, with herds of springbok, ostrich and even leopard.
We traverse sand dunes on 4×4 safaris and boat on the Kunene River that becomes the focus for the area.
On the boat trips, one can watch Kunene crocodiles basking the river banks. Walking trails in the remote mountain and river valleys will always be a highlight for those who enjoy foot safaris.
Cafema is often visited by the native Ovahimba families who live in the nearby vicinity which give the guests the chance to learn all about their lifestyles and traditions
