Wildlife at Serra Cafema Camp

The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in this region, the river creating a lush oasis along its banks – a winding band of green surrounded by the lunar-like landscape of the Namib Desert which stretches to the Serra Cafema mountain range in the north.

Game viewing in this area is limited to herds of gemsbok, springbok and Hartmann's mountain zebra. The Kunene River has a large population of Nile crocodiles. Burchell's Courser and Benguela Long-billed Lark are among the characteristic bird species to be found in this area. There are also a number of endemic reptiles, the desert plated lizard being a particular specialty.

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. ”
