Serra Cafema, one of the most remote camps in southern Africa, is located in the extreme north-west of Namibia and gets its Portuguese name from the mountains to north that dominate the skyline. The camp is set amongst ancient Albida trees on the banks of the only permanent source of water in the region, the Kunene River, and shares the area with the Himba people, amongst the last true nomads in Africa. The camp's eight canvas and thatched chalets are raised off the ground, each with its own en-suite bathroom. The camp also has a dining room, bar and pool.
Guests fall asleep to the sound of the river rapid just below the camp; in contrast, during the day they explore one of the driest deserts in the world. Activities here are many and varied, including traversing sand dunes, boating on the river, walking in remote valleys, enjoying breathtaking landscapes, as well as carefully guided quad-bike excursions tat tread lightly on the dunes. Serra Cafema is often visited by nearby native Ovahimba families, providing guests with the opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and traditions.
