Retreat: Serra Cafema
Namibia > Skeleton Coast National Park


The land on which Serra Cafema is constructed is leased from the 741,000 acres Marienfluss Conservancy, which is comprised primarily of the Himba people, who are amongst the last semi-nomadic people on the planet. Wilderness Safaris has undertaken to train and employ local community members, making Serra Cafema an eco-tourist venture wholly staffed an run by the Himba. With only the utmost respect for the Himba culture, Serra Cafema has been able to establish excellent relationships with the adjacent villages, and now guests are able to experience traditional culture.
