9) Hoanib skeleton coast camp
Flying over the geometric linear Etendeka Terraces of the rugged mountain region of Damaraland with its golden grass-covered valleys that turn green in the rain season creates a sense of serene and soul-soothing solitude. Imagine peaceful herds of springbok, groups of giraffes and family-bonded elephants roaming the fertile plains and shaded riverbeds, and solitary black rhino roving the vast rocky spaces of their last refuge in undisturbed freedom. As you continue to cruise over the south-western corner of Namibia you reach the ancient and enormous expanse of the Marienfluss that inescapably leads to the Kunene River that flows along the towering mountain ranges dividing the country from neighbouring Angola. It is here, set in one of southern Africa’s remotest region, Namibia’s Kaokoveld that Serra Cafema lies on the banks of the rushing Kunene River amidst luxuriant green riverine forests on the border to Angola. The camp comprises of eight tented chalets with in- and outdoor showers and en suite bathrooms. Here you can meet with the ochre people, the semi-nomadic Himba tribe and learn about their culture and traditions, or participating in activities such as boat cruises, guided quad biking, day & night game drives, and guided walks to learn more about the area. A sojourn at Serra Cafema guarantees a naturally digital detox experience without internet or cell phone coverage; where the overwhelmingly peaceful atmosphere of mountains, river, dunes, and plains contribute to a peace that profoundly regenerates body, mind, and soul.
