In Namibia's Kunene River, a veritable menagerie of exotic animals live in stunning defiance of the arid Namib Desert. Explore one of Africa's most delicate ecosystems at beautiful Serra Cafema.

Collect a lifetime of African memories while barely leaving a footprint behind. A camp with extremely strong ties to the local Himba people (one of the last true nomad cultures), Serra Cafema staunchly maintains low-impact living, while unveiling Namibia's most intimate natural secrets.

Accommodations include eight elevated tents, a swimming pool, lounge, river bar, and library. Note that it is customary for Serra Cafema guests to spend at least one afternoon on the porch, swinging in their hammock and basking in the sun.

Once you've grown used to the camp's leisurely pace, set out into the harsh desert with your guides, who will astound you with their knowledge of the seemingly lifeless dunes. You'll soon discover they are anything but.

In incredible contrast, you'll find that the Kunene River feeds a diverse community of animals. While boating the river, you'll see Nile crocodiles, waterbirds, and reptiles. Game include gembok, springbok, and mountain zebras.

Serra Cafema is situated at the foot of evocative Hartmann's Valley, sheltered from the heat in a thicket of Albida trees on the banks of the Kunene River. One of the most secluded recreational camps in Southern Africa, it can only be reached by a three-hour flight from Windhoek, Namibia's capital city.
