Serra Cafema
Skeleton Coast

The remoteness and sheer beauty of the Kunene River on the Skeleton Coast of Namibia make Serra Cafema an idyllic spot for its privileged guests.  The 8 beautifully designed canvas and thatched suites are built on the banks of the Kunene River overlooking Angola.  The River meanders through the vast Kalahari Desert creating a moving oasis of lush riverine forest and a magnet for the thirsty and dusty wildlife.  The camp has been sensitively designed to blend seamlessly into this exceptional scenery. 

Serra Cafema Camp successfully combines rustic and understated luxury.  The wooden and thatched main areas sit, quite literally, on the banks of the river in amongst the reeds under large trees.  There is a comfy, sunken lounge, an al fresco dining area, bar, curio shop, library and plunge pool all with great views of over the Kunene River.

Activities on offer at Serra Cafema allow guest to explore the diverse and fascinating landscapes and eco-systems of the region.  Nature drives and quad biking through the rolling dunes or drives and walks into the Hartmann’s Mountains or a visit to the Himba community are all on offer here making this a tremendously thrilling and beautiful camp to visit.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.
Lewis Carrol

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
