Serra Cafema – Skeleton Coast
Set under verdant trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. Guests can truly disconnect, unwind and relax to the sound of rushing water, and explore one of the driest deserts in the world. Respectful interaction with the semi-nomadic Himba community, fascinating nature walks, boating (water levels permitting), and low-impact guided quad-bike excursions complete the experience.
The eight chalets are set on elevated decks and crafted in wood, canvas and thatch to create a unique camp that is at one with its surroundings and celebrates the culture of the Himba people. The Ozonganda (Herero, meaning “main area”) affords spectacular views over the Kunene River.
We have a mutually-beneficial partnership with the Marienfluss Conservancy, which is owned primarily by the Himba people, the benefits of which include lease fees, employment and skills transfer.
Best Time to Visit Namibia
Namibia is one of the sunniest countries and is an all year destination, summer is very warm and sunny with cold nights. There is always a chance of spectacular thunderstorms during winter months. Wildlife viewing in all parks, but especially in Etosha, is best in the dry season from June to October whereas the wetter season is better for scenary, bird watching and photography. June to October is usually the peak travel season and requires planning in advance.
It is your responsibility to check the entry visa requirements with the individual embassy of each country you intend visiting prior to departure.
