The attention to detail and dedication of the management really shows at Ai Aiba. The staff actually seemed happy, which was almost unique on our trip.

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The location is beautiful, and we saw plenty of animals wandering by, including some giraffes. It generally felt very relaxed and quiet, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a high standard, and the central lodge is also very nice with a small swimming pool overlooking the...

This a great lodge with excellent service in a most beautiful setting-surrounded by massive granite formations .An excursion to the 2000 year old extremely well preserved rock paintings is a highlight. Wonderful bird-life. The lodge is very popular amongst international guests and I would urge fellow South Africans visiting Namibia not to miss this amazing destination-a reduced rate is offered...

We booked the Ai Aiba just to have somewhere to sleep as part of a longer journey. One of the reasons we booked here was a quick and positive e.mail-reply by Heinke. As we were getting closer we discovered how beautiful the area north of Erongo is! And when we arrived we were warmly welcomed with a cool drink and...

Room was beautiful, quiet and comfortable, huge good shower, lovely patio from which to watch the waterhole activity. Food was very good and the manager couldn't have been nicer or more obliging....

Ai Aiba was a beautiful lodge where they seemed to think of the little extra details to make your stay perfect. Everything worked. The room was nice, when you turned on the hot water you got hot water, the pool was clean, they put wine glasses in the room. We were the only people staying there and the manager gave...

One of the loveliest places to stay in Namibia, in the middle of the Erongo Nature Conservancy on a lodge set in pristine wilderness. The bungalows (10 in all, two rooms per building) are large, extremely comfortable and superbly laid out, under thatched traditional roofs. The local nature walks to the rock paintings are easy to follow yourself and completely...
