The gravel road to Ai-Aiba Lodge is spectacularly flanked by the Erongo Mountain range.

Massive boulders strewn across the landscape alongside strange rock formations are remnants of an ancient volcanic complex.

Ai-Aiba Lodge is set against imposing granite boulders in the foothills of the Erongo Mountain range. Steeped in history these ancient rock formations are the eroded remains of a volcanic complex about 130 million years old.

Famous for its countless rock painting sites Ai-Aiba offers a mystical exploration of nature.

The lodge forms part of the 200 000 hectare Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy. The pristine wilderness area straddles the Erongo Mountains and boasts unparalleled biodiversity.

Guests are encouraged to relax and take the time to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the Erongo Mountains and the Bushveld.

It is the perfect place to spend a day. Wind down at the pool with a good book, or if the energy of the granite mountains inspires you, take a walk or drive with an experienced guide through the mountains.

The magic of the breathtaking landscape gently touched by the mystic colours of the setting sun can be admired with a choice of walking trails or sundowner tours.

Towering boulders form the backdrop to the mountain facing chalets with views that incorporate the rugged landscape.

Ten African inspired private chalets made up of 20 rooms provide comfortable accommodation that optimises the unique setting where large windows frame the rocky outcrops and bush Savannah with its incredible display of endemic trees such as the Purple-Pod Terminalia.

Guests can sleep with curtains open and wake up to see the pink and blue hues of the African morning sky colouring the landscape.

Each air-conditioned room has a small lounge with a tea and coffee station, as well as an electronic safe for valuables.

The spacious bathrooms comprise a walk-in shower and separate toilet.

A small shaded veranda with a table and chairs provides the perfect spot to relax, listen to bird calls and be at one with nature.

The rooms are tastefully furnished in African style. Each has a private patio, en suite shower and separate toilet.
