SERRA CAFEMA IS ONE OF THE MOST REMOTE CAMPS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA

KAOKOVELD, NAMIBIA

The newly rebuilt Serra Cafema brings a softness to the wild landscapes of Namibia, while embracing local culture in every aesthetic. 

 

Located on the banks of the Kunene River with dunes of Angola stretching beyond, Serra Cafema’s eight rooms are a retreat unlike any other. Gorgeously crafted with thatched roofs and charcoal black walls, photographs of Himba men and women and their artifacts are front and center, while soft leather and hide touches are an ode to their preferred material. Much deeper than the decor, this newest version of Serra Cafema was built with the community and environment in mind. Reclaimed materials were used whenever possible, and local men and women were employed to help with the rebuild, even making the tables for the dining area. Wine and menu folders were made by local artisans as well, and skincare products from women-run Namibian company Mbiri were commissioned for an exclusive launch at Serra Cafema. 

By day, you’ll get to boat on the Kunene River, explore the wonders of the dunes on quad bikes or on foot, visit a nearby semi-nomadic Himba community, and go on incredible nature drives and walks in Hartmann’s Valley. While you won’t see the classic African Big 5, you’ll most likely catch a glimpse of wildlife unique to this area like gemsbok, nile crocodiles, springbok, zebra, horned adders, chameleons, and many more species.

"Fire is critical to Himba society, not only for cooking and cleansing, but also their separate, sacred fire, where milestones are celebrated and a connection to the ancestors is maintained."
