Climate and Landscape
Serra Cafema was still feeling the winter bite during September, with some pretty cold early mornings and evenings.
However, the days warmed up and guests (and guides) had wonderful days with some fantastic bird sightings along the Kunene as well as quite a bit of game including oryx and Hartmann’s mountain zebra.
The water levels of the Kunene are dropping on an almost daily basis and boat cruises are now limited to a small area right in front of the camp. There are rocky outcrops that the guides need to skirt up- and downstream.
It is something of a tradition that Serra Cafema’s management and guides have a big breakfast fry-up together once a week. Now imagine everyone’s surprise when a little African wild cat came out of the bushes, right up to the table where they were eating at the back of house. It must have been the bacon…! Gaylord was quick to grab his camera and took a few amazing shots.
“Love Serra Cafema. This place is definitely special. The knowledge of the guides who go way over and beyond to make sure you get the best experience. The staff of the lodge, what can I say, they are exceptional. Will miss this place but it will forever hold a piece of my heart.”
