Serra Cafema, Namib Desert, Namibia

Serra Cafema Camp is a Classic Camp

Wildlife at Serra Cafema Camp

The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in this region, the river creating an  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 small 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 speciality.
