Accommodation © EMRST


Here we briefly introduce the different tourist accommodations that can be found in the
Erongo Mountain Rhino Sanctuary Trust. As the EMRST/EMNS is made up of numerous privately owned land units, the different tourism destinations are also privately managed. In this way, each destination has its own charm and character, and it is up to you, the visitor, to thus explore the Erongo in all its uniqueness and diversity.

Ai Aiba - The Rock Painting Lodge

The Ai Aiba Lodge is situated at the north-western foothills of the Erongo Mountains.
10 thatched twin chalets tastefully furnished in African style provide the perfect ambience to the surrounding granite boulders and kopjes. Every chalet has a private patio and en-suite bathroom; the view of some chalets reaching the Brandberg mountain. The panoramic view from the open restaurant and bar, where excellent food is served, is equally overwhelming.
The plentiful pre-historic rock paintings - giving the lodge its name - can be explored hiking on the marked trails or on one of the nature drives offered here.
Or you can relax at the swimming pool - always with the backdrop of the Erongo Mountains to the one and the endless view into the Damaraland to the other side.

Farm Omandumba

Farm Omandumba is one of the typical Namibian family run farms, situated in the north-west of the Erongo Mountains. Omandumba West used to be a live-stock farm for cattle and goats.
But since, the Rust family has successfully integrated the principles of the EMRST/EMNS at Omandumba and has transitioned to a popular tourism destination. The charm of a true Namibian farm has remained though; accommodation is in 8 new double farm-style rooms, meals are taken with the family table. Afterwards, stories and adventures are shared at the traditional camp fire.
Farm Omandumba also has a camping site with 5 individual sites, each with their own toilet and shower.
Many activities are also offered at Omandumba. Unique for Omandumba is a visit to the “Living Hunter’s Museum” of the Bushmen (San). The traditions and way of life of the bushmen is shown to the visitor here. A guided tour is also offered to the plentiful rock art and engravings. Or the characteristic “Sundowner”-tour with a cold drink at sunset and the backdrop of the Erongo Mountains. Omandumba is also worth a visit for game or bird viewing as many of the typical species of the Erongo occur here.
