SERRA CAFEMA CAMP

Serra Cafema Camp - Perched on the Kunene River - www.classicencounters.com

Serra Cafema Camp, one of the remotest destinations in all of Africa, offers one of the most memorable experiences.

Perched on the banks of the Kunene River, we share this region with the wonderful and colorful Himba people, some of the last true nomadic people of Africa.

The camp has 9 canvas and thatched chalets on decks, each with its own en-suite bathroom. One falls asleep to the gurgling water sounds from the cataract downstream from camp.

The variety of activities to explore the breathtaking landscape dotted all about with Springbok, Ostrich and Oryx, include traversing the sand dunes on carefully guided quad-bike excursions that tread lightly on the dunes and boating on the Kunene River. Walking in the remote mountain and river valleys are also a highlight.

The terrain is rugged and harsh, hence this camp will be enjoyed by those who are looking for a true wilderness experience, in some of the most spectacular scenery in southern Africa.

Game viewing in this area is limited to large herds of Oryx and springbok in the Hartman's valley. The Kunene River has a large population of Nile Crocodiles. Cinderella Waxbills, Rufous Bellied Palmtrush and Grey Kestrels are three species of bird not seen anywhere else in southern Africa, Palm nut vultures are seen occasionally as well as a number of the Namibian endemics. There are also a number of endemic reptiles.
