Surrounded by the vast sweeping dunes of the Namib dessert and overlooking the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is a beautiful and remote eco-lodge. Hidden away in the enormous Hartmann Valley this is undoubtedly one of Namibia's more undiscovered lodges and offers an undeniable level of calm and relaxation. Get lost in the sound of the Kunene River uniquely juxtaposed by the dry desert-scape of the Namib.
There are 8 rooms in total, all of which are indulgently luxurious and provide incredible views. En-suite bathrooms and private verandas are complemented by glass doors and walls at the front with each room raised high off the ground on wooden decking. The camp's main area rests in the shade of tall trees on the banks of the river. You are welcome to enjoy the lodge's plunge pool and explore the curio shop. The lounge area, library and bar provide you the chance to relax while the dining space, which offers both indoor and outdoor dining, allows you to delight in the lodge's delicious cuisine surrounded by the authentic African interiors or al fresco in the warmth of the Namibian sun.
