Weather and Landscape
Serra Cafema is experiencing summer in full swing, with the camp pool a favourite spot for all our guests – some even threatening to jump into the mighty Kunene River on check-in. The daily maximums ranged between 34–36 °C with the average low at around 25 °C. The sky held false promises of rain and unfortunately the thick grey clouds would just accumulate and then blow over.
We had really good and varied sightings during November, especially due to the heat and persistent dry conditions. Most of the wildlife can be observed coming to the river for a drink, and by midday the Kunene River banks are bustling with life.
Common sightings of oryx, springbok and crocodile were enjoyed daily.
The camp curio shop has received a mini-makeover, and all staff enthusiastically lent a helping hand. The end result is magnificent!
“I truly was not prepared for such a paradise when we crested that last hill to reveal the Kunene River running through the desert like the Nile through Egypt - Serra Cafema is like an oasis in the desert. The staff are all fabulous - Jorina, Elaine, Mesia, Denzel, Stoney...Too many to mention if I forgot anyone I didn't mean any slight. The camp was the ideal place to end our Namibian leg of the trip. Our guide Usko was fabulous. I really enjoyed the hike and boat ride. Serra Cafema is a very serene and wonderful paradise, filled with love and laughter. I will plan to return.”
