Very nice lodge with a great team and a very friendly and professional owner Zandre! Try a roof top sundowner aperitif...you will fall in love :-) Thanks a lot, I already came many times and I will continue! Kind regards Benjamin
We stayed here two nights, just a short drive to Swakopmund. Very nice grounds, lots of outdoor seating. Our room had a private backyard with outdoor braai. Kitchen was well stocked. Very nice and accommodating staff.
Beautiful place with friendly and accommodating staff. Enjoyed the colorful peacocks and nature sounds. Was great to have a place we could take our dogs along. They even delivered my charger I fleet behind to my work place. Overall a very pleasant experience.
Friendly and flexible service, in an overall beautiful and very family/child-friendly environment, especially Chalets are awesome. Thanks again so much, we will definitely be coming back next time we travel to the coast. Only fun-element was the gas-geysers, yet one also gets used to that one ;-)
Best venue ever, i will recommend this 200%, absolutely fantastic. Thank you Zander and your wonderful team. Best atmosphere you can imagine, and the most of all, the pure nature bliss with the free roaming birds, what a treat. Beautiful rooms and the best food ever. Thank you once again for the hospitality.
We found Gecko Lodge the most delightful and friendly accommodation in our stays over the years in this area of Namibia. A floral oasis in the dessert and a truly hidden gem and one which we’ll be sure to visit again. The views, particularly at sundown were breathtaking and even the beautiful peacocks only added in setting a truly stunning scene. Our surroundings and pool area were equally charming and the more we explored the property the more pleasant surprises we found. Our accommodation was spacious, comfortable and designed with the discerning guest in mind. The food served was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff or friendly owners. It all added up to the most enjoyable of stays. Richard & Elaine Wadland – Sheffield – England.
We really enjoyed our stay at Gecko Ridge. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean and the communal areas of the lodge are really lovely. The pool area is like a little oasis of green in the middle of the desert and has been designed beautifully. The restaurant is really nice and all the staff were lovely. It is a 20 min drive into town but that did not bother us...it was nice to get back after a day out to the peace and tranquility of the pool area at Gecko Ridge. I would definitely stay again.
We stayed here for four nights in a self catering unit, over the weekend the room wasn't serviced at all and the rubbish bin wasn't emptied once during the weekend. Our experience is a pity due to a perfect location not far out of Swakopmund, fantastic farm atmosphere.
Facilities are beautiful, location is good when going by car and the staff are very attentive and accommodating. Worth visiting. Especially nice is watching the sunset from the terrace of the garden surrounded by guinea fowls and peacocks.
Come early for breakfast or risk of shortage. Would be great to see the manager more implicated. There is a great terrace upstairs but no incentive to use it. The rooms are comfortable with fridges, coffee & small kitchen.
