Serra Cafema, Namib Desert, Namibia

Serra Cafema Camp is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Serra Cafema Camp

Activities at Serra Cafema revolve around the exploration of the surrounding Namib Desert sands contrasting with the lush oases along the river, as well as authentic cultural Himba experiences.

Nature drives and walks in Hartmann's Valley

Informative nature drives in open Land Rovers allow guests to experience the true Namib in its unbridled glory, while walking provides unique opportunities to see the smaller denizens of the desert, from the famous fairy circles to the desert chameleon.

Quad biking Excursion

One of our highlights, guided quad bike excursions through the fragile environs, is done with utmost care along specifically allocated pathways, so as to tread lightly on the dunes and preserve the unique and delicate habitats of this landscape.

Visits to a Himba Community

In this isolated area, the Himba people continue their traditional semi-nomadic way of life and, when they are in the area, guests have an opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and customs.

Boating trips on the Kunene River

Boating on the Kunene River (water levels permitting) provides our guests with the opportunity to venture through the lush riverside oases. Crocodiles and waterbirds seem out of place in this surreal, lunar-like landscape.
