A Quote From Our Guests

“ Serra Cafema Camp is one of the most isolated safari camps in Africa which was reason enough for me to want to visit. Set on the banks of the Kunene river on the border with Angola, this luxury camp is a delightful oasis.A visit to a local Himba family was quite interesting. ”
