Ai Aiba Lodge
Joining the ranks of Stopover Destination, Ai Aiba Lodge is a small, comfortable lodge at the foot of a picturesque granite outcrop looking south towards the Erongo Mountains.
The lodge has ten rooms in blocks of two with thatched roofs, private patios and en suite bathrooms with showers. The rooms have a distinct African theme with terracotta tiling, chunky wooden furniture and woven fabric wall hangings. A large pool is the focal point of the living area, itself an enormous open-fronted thatch building that houses the restaurant and bar. The view of the mountains from here is worth several gin and tonics.
A feature of the area, and indeed the lodge's own slogan, is the numerous ancient rock art sites that add to the atmosphere of timeless serenity at Ai Aiba Lodge. Guided tours, day trips and walking trails make the most of these fascinating petroglyphs.
Thatched, en suite double rooms; private terrace; en suite bathroom; swimming pool; restaurant; bar
Pre-historic rock paintings; walking trails; guided tours in open 4WD vehicles; six-hour tour to main cave with picnic lunch; scenic sunset drives
Ai Aiba is situated near the delightful town of Omaruru and is a convenient stop between Windhoek and Etosha and Swakopmund - three places you're almost obliged to visit on your tour of Namibia.
