Far away remote adventure camp
Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa, its Portuguese name originating from the mountains that dominate the northern skyline.The camp is set amongst shady trees on the banks of the Kunene River that forms the border between Namibia and Angola in the extreme north of Namibia. It is the only permanent water source in the region and is lined with riverine vegetation and palm trees.You will fall asleep to the sound of rushing water, while by day you will explore one of the driest deserts in the world.
Eight riverside wood, canvas and thatched villas have been built on spacious, elevated decks blending smoothly into the picturesque surroundings. The Ozonganda, or main area, comprises indoor and outdoor dining areas, sunken lounge, library, curio shop and swimming pool, all sharing views of the Kunene River.
Activities are varied and include boating, walking, viewing breathtaking landscapes, as well as carefully guided quad-bike excursions that tread lightly on the dunes. In this isolated region, the Himba people continue their nomadic, traditional way of life and when in the area, offer guests the opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and traditions.
