Undoubtedly amongst the most remote camps in Southern Africa, Serra Cafema is only reachable by light aircraft which adds to the exclusivity of this beautiful property. Serra Cafema is an intimate, peaceful camp with a unique mix of rustic and luxury elements nestled amongst the shady Albida trees on the banks of the Kunene. Rapids just below camp provide a calming ambiance with guests often lulled into dreamland by the gurgling waters after a day exploring one of the driest, starkly beautiful regions in the world. Accommodation at Serra Cafema consists of eight riverside Meru-style canvas and thatched villas on spacious, elevated decks blended smoothly into the picturesque surroundings. Each fully furnished tent has an en-suite bathroom, ceiling fan and mosquito nets. A late afternoon spent lounging on the front deck soaking up the breathtaking vistas of this contrasting wilderness is an absolute must.

Named after the famous explorer Sir Francis Galton, this small hotel has a relaxed but efficient style which creates a very welcoming atmosphere.

Your home before you venture off into the barren and beautiful Namibian Desert, this stylish boutique hotel is hidden away in the Eastern corner of Namibia’s capital and only proclaimed city, Windhoek. The city itself is the seat of the country’s cultural and administrative powers but despite this, it remains one of the smallest capitals in the world with just 250,000 residents. The Olive reflects Windhoek’s small size, providing a cosy but luxurious bolt-hole with great access to the surrounding wilderness. Reminders of the prevalent Namibian culture are spread throughout the hotel as the modern is combined with the traditional. Rough-hewn wooden benches sit on plush carpets around sculpted granite coffee tables, animal-skin rugs lay beneath large beds covered in crisp white cotton and wide glass doors lead out onto your personal terrace for a view across the small city.
Famed to be one of the smallest capital cities in the world with a population of just 234,000. The city itself has some fascinating buildings with typical German architecture, and a burgeoning restaurant scene.

Simply one of the most beautiful tented camps in Africa, Zarafa is a triumph of conservation and attention to detail. There are just 4 immense tented suites set on raised wooden platforms overlooking the floodplain of the Zibadianja Lagoon. The tents are decorated in a style befitting of the explorations of the early 20th Century matched with modern comforts and technological surprises. In your separate lounge area, an antique wooden chest contains a top of the range Canon camera and lens for your exclusive use whilst in camp (the camp manager will give you the low-down on how to use it). A polished copper bath tub and fireplace adorn the bedroom. The camp is set inside the 320,000 acre Selinda Private reserve, created to conserve and protect the wildlife of the area and provide corridors for migration around Botswana. This is home to a diverse and rich abundance of species similar to those found in the Savuti and Chobe National Parks but with the exclusivity of a private reserve.
With a diverse and rich abundance of species similar to those found in the Savuti and Chobe National Parks but with the exclusivity of a private reserve, spend your days exploring the thriving wildlife here on morning and afternoon game drives through the 320,000 acre Selinda Private Reserve, in the company of Zarafa's expert rangers and trackers. Further activities such as guided bush walks to observe Selinda's smaller species and flora at a slower pace, or pontoon boat trips over the lagoon (water levels permitting) are just some of the other ways to fill your time and encounter this dynamic reserve. In between all of this relax in the luxurious surrounds of your tented suite, looking out over this extraordinary territory and listening to the distinctive sounds of the bush.
