Tucked away in the vast Hartmann Valley, Serra Cafema gazes out over the life-giving Kunene River and the endless, wide-open landscapes of the ancient Namib Desert. Serra Cafema is among the remotest getaways in Africa, as well as being in one of the most surreal and engaging desert settings. Visiting this unique place is a rich journey into the quiet solitude of the haunting desert moonscapes, the perfect place for reflection and rejuvenation - for an exploration of the soul!
Set among age-old albida trees growing on the banks of the Kunene River, the region's only continuous water source, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. Rapids just below camp provide a calming ambience; guests fall asleep to the sound of rushing water, while by day they explore one of the driest deserts in the world.
Serra Cafema gets its Portuguese name from the mountains that dominate the northern skyline, and shares the area with the Himba people, among the last true nomads in Africa.
