The camp is only accessible by a light aircraft and then a 4WD transfer into camp. It is the only camp for hundreds of miles, making this the perfect place to disconnect and recharge.
Perched on the banks of the Kunene River, and set deep in the Hartmann Valley among an incredible expanse of desert, Serra Cafema is an oasis amidst the striking sand dunes.
Although the surrounding landscapes are marked with harsh climates and barren terrain, this stunning camp is a lush haven overlooking the rushing rapids of the Kunene River.
Small and exclusive, Serra Cafema has just eight gorgeous villas made from canvas and thatch, all with breathtaking views of the river and the surrounding landscape.
Each villa is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, comfortable seating area, ceiling fans and beautiful design inspired by the Himba desert people, one of the last nomadic communities in Africa.
You can visit the nearby Himba settlements for a rare cultural interaction with the Himba people, learning how the tribes survive in such extreme conditions. Although there are some other Himba interactions available elsewhere in Namibia, we think that this is the best on offer.
The adventure continues with safari drives into the wilds of Koakoveld, boat trips along the Kunene River in search of Nile crocodiles, quad biking over the soaring sand dunes, stargazing with laser guides, and a special Olympus Photo Hub experience.
The Hartmann Valley sees few tourists, and you'll often have these incredible sights all to yourself, including the famous 'fairy circles', bizarre circular patterns formed on the sand in this wild land.
After an exhilarating day of exploration, you'll come home to private outdoor decks, perfect for enjoying a drink as you gaze out over one of the last untamed corners of the world.
