Quadbiking at Serra Cafema
Kunene River, Skeleton Coast, Namibia
One of the highlights, guided quad bike excursions through the fragile environs, is done with utmost care along specifically allocated pathways, so as to tread lightly on the dunes and preserve the unique and delicate habitats of this landscape.
Serra Cafema Camp has a number of excellent quad-bikes, perfect for exploring the surrounding area. Jump on a bike, accompanied by your superb guide and he will guide you along the Hartmann River Valley, a swathe of green slicing its way through the sand and rock of the Coast. Or venture further inland and visit the Marienfluss valley, softer and greener than the Hartmann.
Your expert guide will take you along these valleys, pointing out ancient tracks, old courses of the river, and even possibly dropping in to visit a Himba village. On the way back visit the "fairy circles", a phenomena of Namibia, and found in abundance here, with several theories as to how these circular patches of bare ground came about. You'll find them dotted across both Hartmann's and Marienfluss valleys.
After a fascinating and informative quad-bike ride, head back to the lodge for a sumptuous brunch.
