Hotel Overview


The far north of Namibia, a flick of a crocodile’s tail from the Angolan border.

Rooms at Serra Cafema

Eight vast canvas and thatch chalets looking out over the Kunene River.

Food and Facilities

Don’t be fooled by the remoteness of the location. Serra Cafema is startlingly comfortable, with a well-stocked bar, swimming pool, and even a tiny curio shop.

Activities at Serra Cafema

This is all about exploring the wilderness. The landscape here is truly extraordinary. Float gently down the Kunene River counting crocodiles, take quad bikes out into the dunes, and walk and drive through the vast empty landscape.  For a unique step into another life, be sure to pay a visit to the local Himba community.
