Serra Cafema review

The location of the camp is amazing and the rooms were lovely.

The green ribbon of vegetation along the river in the middle of the desert is quite stunning
Francois was an excellent guide. We very much enjoyed our walks and drives with him.

Serra Cafema has separate tables for evening meals which we feel detracts from the camp experience. Also, as the dining room is indoors at this time of year, the parrafin smell from the hurricane lamps on each table can be a bit unpleasant when you are eating.

Amazing place, simply unique

Serrra Cafema was perhaps in many ways the highlight of our trip and we wished we would have stayed for 3 nights instead of the 2 we had. We had the honeymoon room which has views of both the Kunene river and the dunes and this was simply a magical place.

The rooms were huge with all the luxuries required and we sometimes wished we would have just been able to relax in the our room if it were not for all the great activities available. The camp is very remote, but the 1-hour drive from the airstrip is beautiful and you really feel that you have come somewhere special.

The activities include visits to the local Himba community, quad-biking trips, boat trips on the Kunene river and nature/game drives/walks in the surrounding area. Our guide Gerhardus was fantastic and very enthusiastic and made our experience fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him and also had dinner with him on the last night of our stay. The managers Bronkie and Victoria would also do everything to try and make our stay special and we really appreciated their friendly and approachable manner.

The food was great, though at least in April you do have to be careful with a lot of insects and moths that they do not fall in your food/drink, but this is to be expected given the abundant life supported by the river.

Overall, we thought the activities and facilities were top-notch and we hope that one day we may be able to return to Serra Cafema again.

Serra Cafema review

A very special place - it seemed somewhat surrealistic to have such comfort and care in one of the remotest places in Namibia.

We enjoyed our time on the river and were heartened by the sensitive and special relationship the Lodge had with the local Himba families
