Serra Cafema Camp
Serra Cafema is a luxury camp with an idyllic setting in the riverine forest of the Kunene River far away from any hint of civilisation. With the exception of your luxurious accommodation.
Each en suite room is built using thatch, canvas and timber on a raised deck. Hovering above the water is your private verandah that looks across river to the Serra Cafema mountains of Angola. Elevated timber walkways wind through papyrus, palm and albida trees to the sublime living area of the main lodge, which has a swimming pool, lounge, dining area and a large open-air deck.
The landscape, flora, fauna, avifauna and customs of the local inhabitants combine to form an amazing Namibian experience. Activities - besides lazing in your hammock in the shade - include nature drives, interaction with the Himba villagers, walks, quad biking through the dunes, canoeing, birdwatching and fishing.
The region is inhabited by the Himba - hardy pastoralists who roam the desert and lead a life in harmony with the indigenous plants and animals that have adapted to the harsh conditions.
Large herds of gemsbok, springbok and wild ostrich are some of the more prominent animals; you may also see a number of endemic reptiles and the Kunene has plenty of hungry Nile crocodiles.
8 large luxury Meru-style tents raised off the ground; en suite bathrooms with indoor and outside shower; private viewing decks overlooking the Kunene river valley and the Serra Cafema hills; overhead fan; mosquito nets; elevated walkways to each tent; small swimming pool; dining area and bar
Nature drives in Hartmann's Valley; quad biking; boating on the Kunene River; walks in the valleys and at the waterfalls; visit to an authentic Himba village; full day outings with picnic lunches

Okahirongo Elephant Lodge
Way up in the north-western reaches of Kaokoland is a land so wild that coloured drums mark intersections and place names have no written equivalent. Put a comfortable and stylish lodge in the middle of this and the result is a bizarre mix of avant garde eco-tourism.
