Serra Cafema

Kunene River


Or to book, please call 01904 866 033 or email


The rushing rapids of the Kunene River are a stark contrast to the dry sandy dunes of Namibia. They’re surprising. Exhilarating. And they add to the overall sense of drama of Serra Cafema. 

It’s located where the desert meets the river, in one of the most remote areas in southern Africa. Look it up on a map and you’ll see just how isolated it really is. It’s a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Windhoek, but in our opinion it’s well worth the trip. The setting is so unspoilt, it makes for an unforgettable cultural experience amid the Himba tribespeople, rushing rapids and desert dunes. Stay here, and we think it’ll be the highlight of your trip.
