After landing in Namibia, you’ll be transferred to the coastal town of Swakopmund where you’ll spend two nights at The Strand. Set on the promenade and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the location is perfect for accessing the main beach and exploring this unique desert ecosystem. Spend a morning kayaking with seals and spotting flamingos on a calm lagoon nearby Pelican Point.

Delve into this rugged terrain with a morning nature drive where desert-adapted wildlife such as elephants and black rhinos roam freely. Learn about the local flora and fauna on a nature walk from Mowani Mountain Camp, or head out on a Burnt Mountain, Organ Pipes and rock engravings excursion around the World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein.

With an abundance of birdlife fluttering above, have your binoculars to hand to spot black eagles and regional birds such as rosy-faced lovebirds and Rüppell’s parrots. Uncover the surrounding beauty soaking up outstanding views over the Erongo and Brandberg Mountains in the early hours, over a sundowner, or heading out on guided walks through the wilderness.


The journey to Namibia and Serra Cafema was the best trip I’ve ever done. I really loved the remote camp, the way we travelled there (flying over the endless dunes and amazing coastline in a private plane) and the infinite hospitality, knowledge and passion of the whole team. We enjoyed a lot of activities: we visited the Himba people, which was the experience of a lifetime, took a quad bike tour and boat tour. For my birthday, they organised a private dinner at a beautiful, remote location.
