The Aiaiba Lodge lies in a wonderful Valley not far from Omaruru. The place has a stunning view into the Valley and offers some good Hiking and Animal Watching (Giraffes, Cats, Oryx etc.). The Lodge has 10 Cottages each with 2 Rooms. The Car can be parked close behind the Lodge. We enjoyed the good Breakfast and very good Dinner. What we didn't like was that our Room wasn't cleaned (just the Beds where made) and the Attitude of the Manager towards his Employees. Also we experienced that some Customers received an Extra Service by the Manager.

When we arrived at ai aiba we were not expected altough our travel agent got full confirmation. Luckly they had two rooms so we check in with our travel voucher. It was uncomfortable gettimg there and not being expected so we dont know where the problem was. The children enjoyed the stay alot. Martin and his staff was very friendly and dinner was also very nice. The aircons was a huge dissapointment as it is not advertised on the website that they work on timers and the rooms were very hot. It is only put on at 4pm in the after noon and works troughout the nkght till 6am. This place is beautifull but extremely hot and I believe that it must be the choice of the paying guest od when to put it on or off. Rooms are very basic and I honestly think alot more can be done at this lodge. You also have to pay to use a hairdryer which is absolutely rediculous. Also no fridges in the rooms to keep water cold. The location and views are beautiful and the layout of the lodge. Dinner was great and the food was superb.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nice.

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. The food is good, the rooms clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our time, the grounds have lots to offer in terms of culture, wildlife, birds and scenery and it's a great place to visit.

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 savanna and a bar area.

I can't really think of any negatives. When we arrived we were surprised there were no mosquito nets around the bed, though it seems now that it wasn't really a problem as we didn't get bitten at all. At some points it was difficult to find a member of staff, but when we did they were very helpful.

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 to South Africans and the lodge is excellent value for money.Highly recommended.!

Room Tip: All rooms are great-we liked being near the main lodge overlooking the waterhole.
