Serra Cafema Camp, Kunene River

Serra Cafema is a remote but luxury safari hideaway. Only reached by a three hour light aircraft ride, it provides the ultimate in safari-style accommodation. Eight Meru-style, canvas villas are complete with en-suite bathrooms and viewing decks.

This will sound odd, but you’ll find that a location as remote as this suddenly becomes the centre of the world. Well, your world at least.

And what a world it is. A place of canvas and thatched villas, giving you the perfect base for exploring some of the most fascinating environments in the whole of Southern Africa. Like the fragile, ever shifting and astonishingly visual Namib Desert sands. Like boating through the riverside oases of the Kunene. Like exploring surreal, lunar-like landscapes seemingly devoid of water. Like encountering Himba tribesmen, some of Africa’s last nomadic people. Fall asleep to the relaxing sounds of the gurgling rapids, just below the camp.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
