Walking in the remote mountain and river valleys are a highlight. The native Ovahimba families who live in the nearby vicinity often visit Serra Cafema, this enables guests the opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and traditions. One of the highlights of Serra Cafema is the carefully guided quad-bike excursions that tread lightly on the dunes.

The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in the region and creates an oasis along its banks surrounded by rugged mountains and sand dunes. In stark contrast, during the day, guests spend their time exploring one of the planet’s driest deserts. Guests enjoy the breath-taking landscape scenes with Springbok, Ostrich and Oryx dotted here and there, traversing the sand dunes in 4×4 Landrovers and boating on the Kunene River where we can watch for the Kunene crocodiles.
