Remote, unique, Serra Cafema is located in northern Namibia, on the Kunene river, and is literally in sight of Angola. Accessed by air, it is surrounded by desert, situated in a grove of Albida trees, and extends right over the river when in flood.

While Serra Cafema possesses the multi-peaked thatch roofs common to many a Namibian lodge, it is also quite unlike any of its competitors. Modern and yet other wordly, Serra Cafema Camp combines a cutting edge service with something one might find in The African Queen. Raised above a dry island, and consisting of a main area, 8 Meru-like chalets and a honeymoon suite, it is largely a stone, wood and thatch build, and is characterised by traditional verandhas, extensive wooden floors, woven table covers, old armchairs, handwoven rugs, hammocks and wooden walkways. Divided into a seating area, bar, lounge, library, pool and verandha, the main lodge is a delight, the food and service excellent.

Canvas, wood and thatch constructs, the 8 chalets are raised up on platforms, and look out over either the river or the dunes. Accessed by walkways, each chalet has a double bed, multiple ceiling fans, large glass doors, separate bathroom and a verandha. The style is simple, and the beds – built from untreated woods – are remarkable not only for their comfort, but for their design – particularly in the way their uprights finish in midair.

Activities at Serra Cafema Camp include boat trips, quad biking, guided walks, scenic drives, bird and crocodile viewing and swimming.
