Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

This comfortable lodge has 20 rooms in blocks of two with thatched roofs, private patios and en suite bathrooms with showers. Refurbed, the decor went from gaudy African in style to classic and contemporary. It's distinct and refined in light grays and neutrals with raw wood accents. It's really quite nice. 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, 120 to be exact, 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.

The setting is dramatic against an outcrop of granite boulders, the surrounds are serene and the mood is laid back and family-friendly. Go explore the Erongo Mountains, then simply relax and as night sets in, enjoy delicious dinner served with an excellent selection of wines. A fine place to stay in these parts, especially if you're interested in the history of the prehistoric rock formations and Bushman rock paintings.
