Serra Cafema, Namib Desert, Namibia

Serra Cafema Camp is a Classic Camp

Rushing rapids in the desert - a surreal experience

Undoubtedly one of the most remote camps in southern Africa, Serra Cafema is located in the extreme north-west of Namibia on the banks of the Kunene River in the Hartmann's Valley. Serra Cafema is an intimate, peaceful camp inspired by the area’s Himba people, with a unique mix of rustic and luxury elements, and nestled amongst shady albida trees.

Accommodation consists of eight wood, canvas and thatched villas on spacious, elevated decks blended smoothly into the picturesque surroundings. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, ceiling fan and mosquito nets. One of these rooms is an intimate, luxurious honeymoon villa with exceptional views, while another accommodates a family. The Ozonganda, or main area, comprises indoor and outdoor dining areas, sunken lounge, library, curio shop and swimming pool, all with their own spectacular views.

Highlights

  • Rushing rapids just below camp lull you into dreamland after a day of desert exploration
  • Most authentic Himba cultural experience in all of Namibia
  • Explore this fascinating unexplored landscape by quad bike
