After a hot, dusty day exploring the desert, nothing beats relaxing in the Ai-Ais therapeutic hot springs. Their name means burning water and their thermal properties, said to be excellent for rheumatism, are particularly sought after in the winter months. It’s a rather awesome feeling sitting in the springs while you allow nature to treat you to some healing and feast your eyes on the scenic wonderland around you. The resort also offers outdoor and indoor pools of varying temperature.

    Nomad African Spa offers not only a healing environment through its treatments, but offers marginalised workers an opportunity to learn and start a career in wellness through its Nomad Spa Academy. An internationally-recognised spa that won the award for Africa’s Best Day Spa at the World Spa Awards in 2015 and 2017, this is one of the few spas in Namibia that incorporates African spa techniques. But the most impressive feature of the spa is that it employs mostly visually impaired Namibians, creating employment for the otherwise marginalised group.
