At the foot of Hartmann’s Valley on the southern banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema Camp is set in a lush riverine oasis surrounded by the lunar-like desolate Namib Desert landscape.

Serra Cafema (Portuguese) is named after the mountains that dominate the region’s northern skyline and is set amongst ancient Albida trees on the banks of the Kunene River, the only permanent source of water in the region. Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa.

Eight canvas and thatched en-suite chalets are raised on wooden viewing-decks. Attention to detail and simple structures of wood, canvas and thatch create a camp that is both African chic and naturally at one with its surroundings.

The intimate dining room, bar, sunken lounge and pool also look-out onto the Kunene River. Guests drift asleep to the sound of perpetual rushing water, while by day they explore one of the driest deserts in the world.

The variety of activities available to explore the breathtaking landscape include informative nature drives that tread lightly on the fragile habitats, and boating on the Kunene River, where crocodiles and waterfowl seem somewhat surreal against the moonscape-like backdrop. Walking in the remote mountain and river valleys is a highlight, as is a visit to a Himba settlement, one of Africa’s last true nomadic peoples. In addition, the enigmatic and much-debated fairy-circle phenomenon is best viewed here in the Hartmann’s Valley.

Serra Cafema is one of the most remote and truly surreal African destinations you will ever visit.
