Serra Cafema Camp is located in the extreme northwest of Namibia and is probably the most remote camp in Southern Africa. The Okavango Delta in Botswana is closer to Windhoek than the Serra Cafema is to Windhoek. For those who appreciate true wild places, the journey to Serra Cafema is one of the most exciting in all of Africa.
The camp's Portuguese name comes from the mountains to the north that dominates the skyline. This small private camp is built within an island of ancient albida trees on the banks of the Kunene River.Serra Cafema shares this region with wonderful Himba people who are some of the last true nomadic people in Africa. The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in the whole of the region and the river creates lush oasis along its banks surrounded by rugged mountains and sand dunes. The river is also home to one of Southern Africa's rarest birds – the Cinderella waxbill, a beautiful bird that inhabits the reed banks along the Kunene River. A safari to Serra Cafema is one of wonder and excitement. The camp's six tents are raised off the ground with ensuite bathroom facilities.
Activities include nature drives in the Hartman's Valley in open land rovers, traversing the sand dunes on quad bikes, boating on the Kunene River, walks in the valleys and at the waterfalls, visits to a working Himba Village and full day outings with picnic lunches.
