Serra Cafema Camp - An oasis amidst the sand dunes


Couples, Families & Honeymoon

Serra Cafema Camp is a small, boutique property in the extreme north-west of Namibia, right against the Angolan border.

The only camp for hundreds of miles, Serra Cafema is a place to disconnect from the real world and reset. A stunning camp right in the heart of an incredible expanse of desert, Serra Cafema is an oasis amidst the sand dunes.

While the region is harsh and sparse, the camp is a haven sitting right by rushing rapids of the Kunene River.

There are eight beautiful villas made from canvas and thatch, all with views of the river and bush. The villas come with ensuite bathrooms, comfortable seating areas, ceiling fans and stylish interior design inspired by the Himba tribe.

The outdoor private decks are ideal for morning coffee or relaxing after a day of exploring the remote region of the Hartmann Valley.

One of eight villas is an appointed honeymoon suite and has even more space and an incredible river view. One villa can also be adjusted to fit a family.

The Hartmann Valley doesn’t see many tourists, and yet there are some incredible sights in this area.

Experience safari drives into the wild Namib Desert for a real ‘off the beaten track’ experience. Visit the local Himba settlements to see how the tribes survive in such extreme conditions. Join boat trips along the Kunene River in search of Nile crocodiles adapted to desert conditions and even quad biking over the massive sand dunes.

Adventure and luxury await at  Serra Cafema.

The camp

Serra Cafema has eight comfortable and spacious tents perched on the banks of the Kunene River, each with a large outdoor deck complete with a hammock. The rooms have king sized beds, draped with mosquito nets, a large sitting area with doors that open to offer unobstructed riverside views and a long corner sofa. The bathrooms also offer amazing views over the river and desert, with his and hers copper sinks and an outdoor shower enclosed with local reeds. The main area of the lodge has a plush lounge with sofas to melt in, a library to learn more about the region and a small swimming pool to cool off in after a day in the Namib Desert, or dine around in the evenings.


Serra Cafema features a lounge, library, curio shop and a swimming pool, all with their own spectacular views.


The main area (also called the Ozonganda) has an indoor and outdoor dining area, a boma, library and swimming pool.

Why Wayfairer

Serra Cafema sits on leased land from the Himba people and care has been taken to establish an excellent relationship with these nomadic tribes. The camp runs on a hybrid power system and is partly powered by solar, ad each guest tend has a solar geyser that provides hot water. They offer a range of activities that are primarily based on exploration that leaves no trace in the delicate habitat of the valley, and they also partner with a couple of universities to conduct research on crocodiles in the area.
