Nestled in the Hartmann Valley and inaccessible except by light aircraft, Serra Cafema is a remote lodge set in a land of contrasts. The permanently flowing Kunene River with its waterbirds and crocodiles flows right in front of the lodge, surrounded by a verdant pocket of vegetation. The backdrop is an unspoilt lunar landscape of dunes, plains (with the strange fairy circle phenomenon) and mountains of the Namib Desert. Unusually for Namibia, activities include wildlife viewing by boat as well as nature drives, quad biking in the dunes and interpretive walks in the mountains and by the river. A nearby Himba village welcomes visitors (when occupied) from Serra Cafema, where guests have the opportunity to learn about the tribe’s traditional way of life.
