5/5 Excellent

We chose Ai Aiba to spend our 10th Anniversary during a two week trip to Namibia and we were not dissappointed. The food was excellent and location is just pure magic. We hiked over the rocks at the back of the lodge and saw San paintings.

5/5 Excellent

High quality in a remote setting

This lodge is in a great location and although the bush trips won't quicken your pulse, the knowledgeable guides make them a good experience.

Pros: Location and staff. From the manager Louis to the gate man, everyone was so friendly and helpful

Cons: Nothing at the lodge but the 'operators ' of the San Living Museum need to take a look at whether more could be done to improve the visitor experience

Location: Great remote location but accessible. Fairly limited 'excursions' but the hotel guides are good and the bushman paintings make a visit worthwhile.

Nice hotel facilities 2hrs from Swakopmund

Access by 2 wheel drive on gravel road. Not much wildlife, rock painting nice but not spectacular, staff and facilities good. Dinner was 3 course fixed menue. very peacful spot.

Chill out in the mountains

Brilliant place just to stop and chill. We had been travelling for a while, visiting and driving ot was good just to have a pulse of days downtime in a very beautiful part of the country. Staff were really accommodating and very adaptable to what we wanted to do. Good was good but the evening meal was a little like European prices. Not a place that you would drop in to, you have to book and give yourself plenty of time drying through the conservation area

4/5 Good


Ce lodge très fréquenté par les couples vaut surtout pour les environs et la piscine agréable (mais froide). Un repas correct. Pas d'eau chaude, mais le patron s'en excusé le lendemain (panne mécanique). On a eu du mal à trouver notre lodge car l'explication fut furtive et sommaire. Un accueil pas top mais cela arrive. Un coucher de soleil depuis une colline proche. Des singes qui passent au petit matin, mais pas grand chose d'autres. Mitigé en regard de nos attentes.
