  • Amazing

    The hotel is in a wonderful location surrounded by granite boulders but with an open view. We stayed here for one night and we did enjoy everything. The sundowner ride including the visit of some rock paintings was very interesting and we also managed to see some animals review

  • Phenomenal

    I have been to Ai Aiba many times over the years and have always loved this place. Since the upgrade it is even better! What the new team under General Manager Coenie are delivering is simply fantastic - well done! Do allow enough time to visit the San (Bushman) people review

  • What an experience!

    It is stunning. The room was super comfortable, the food and staff were fantastic and my favourite part of the experience was a nature drive with our guide, Dion. He was knowledgeable and learning about the history of the region and see the rock paintings was incredible. It was magical and I would go back in a heart bea review
