Climate and Landscape
Serra Cafema was still experiencing lovely weather in June, even though it is mid-winter! After a short cold spell, the warmer weather crept in again and the days were lovely.
Some mornings surprised all the guests with their spooky, eerie feel as the fog moved over the river. The phenomenon of the fog is one that allows a country that has extremely low rainfall to get moisture. Thanks to the meeting of the icy Atlantic water and the warm air of the Skeleton Coast, this moisture drifts far inland along the river valleys and is eagerly harvested by plants and animals before the sun burns off the remnants.
Dinners at Serra Cafema were all the more memorable thanks to the soft fog settling onto the river in front of camp later in the evening.
“This place is paradise and probably the most impressive thing is the real concern for the environment and the people living here. Meeting the Himba people and seeing how they survive in this harsh environment was truly the best.”
