Renowned as one of Namibia’s finest camps, Serra Cafema’s small size makes it wonderfully personal and a fantastic place to disconnect from the outside world. Located in one of the world’s driest deserts, the Kunene River creates a luscious oasis of green amidst a landscape of rocky outcrops and endless sand dunes. Delight in magical views from the main camp area and unwind on the wooden decking to pleasant sounds of water rushing past. Keep your eyes peeled for interesting birdlife and crocodiles silently gliding beneath.

When darkness sweeps over the camp, experience world-class stargazing from the oval seating area, before reclining to the comforts of your private Meru-style chalet. Perched on elevated decks, combining wood, thatch and canvas materials, the chalets blend seamlessly into their wild surroundings. Each chalet oozes a sense of true Namibia through neutral tones and rustic, yet luxurious furnishings. Indulge in hypnotic views of the contrasting wilderness landscape as you relax in a swaying hammock on your private river-facing deck.
