Set amongst shady trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa, its Portuguese name originating from the mountains that dominate the northern skyline. Guests fall asleep to the sound of rushing water, while by day they explore one of the driest deserts in the world.

The camp’s eight unique canvas and thatched chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom, show great attention to detail; the elevated decks and simple structures of wood, canvas and thatch create a camp that is at one with its surroundings. The dining room and pool look out over the Kunene River.

Activities here are varied, including boating (water levels permitting), walking, viewing breathtaking landscapes, as well as carefully guided quad-bike excursions that tread lightly on the dunes. In this isolated region, the Himba people continue their nomadic, traditional way of life and when in the area, guests have the opportunity to meet them and learn about their lifestyle and traditions.

Nhoma Safari Camp is a small activity orientated, tented camp, situated in the north eastern corner of Namibia on state-owned land within the traditional area of the Ju/’hoan San or Bushmen (as they are commonly known in Namibia). The camp is owned and was built by Arno Oosthuysen with the help of the //Nhoq’ma community with whom he has had an exclusive agreement since 1999. Tourism allows the community to earn cash in order to buy food and supplies not provided by the surrounding environment. Without tourism, the community would have left their ancestral land and moved to settled areas such as Tsumkwe.

The safari tents, shaded by large Zambesi teak trees, provide the basic luxuries such as comfortable beds and en-suite bath rooms with hot water. Meals and drinks are provided in a central dining area consisting only of a large thatched roof. It is adjacent to the Ju/’hoan village by the name of //Nhoq’ma and 60 km, or a one-and-a-half hour drive on a 4WD track, from the Khaudum National Park. The ten tents are spread out along a vegetated dune with a 180 degree view over the Nhoma omuramba (fossil river bed). The vegetation of this part of the Kalahari is classified as woodland savannah and is a far cry from the image people have of the Kalahari! Other surprises reveal themselves during the course of a visit.
