Wilderness Safaris Serra Cafema is one of Namibia's hidden gems. Located on the banks of Kunene River in the Hartmann’s Valley, the lodge prides itself on providing life-changing journeys.
The luxury lodge reopened on September 2018 and is part of a joint venture between Wilderness Safaris and the Marienfluss Conservancy. The lodge undertook a redesign to enhance the natural features of the desert scape, and for guests to take a glimpse into the lives of the Himba community, Wilderness Safaris’said in a statement.
The 8 luxury guestrooms overlook the Kunene River. Karen Munting from Windhoek-based Munting Rechholtz Architects said Serra Cafema’s main area imitates the structure of a Himba village
“The buildings are arranged to connect to each other via different outdoor spaces to ensure privacy,” she said in a statement.
There is plenty to see and do. Among the activities include nature drives and walks in Hartmann's Valley, a visit to the Himba Community, quad biking excursion and dune excursions.
Foodies can expect a combination of modern cuisine and local traditional meals, including chardonnay mussels and kingklip wrapped in Black Forest ham and served on a bed of Niçois.
