Thank you for everything. Service, Food, abd Staff all very friendly and reliable service. We feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Best lodge by far.
When visiting it feels like you can forget the rest if the world and just feel pampered.

I visited GocheGanas with two friends for a few days. It was an absolutely fantastic holiday – relaxation, wildlife, adventure and superb treatments. The trip from the airport via Windhoek to the beautiful nature reserve was swift and pleasant. The lodge and the wellness village are truly unique, WOW. The view is breathtaking and the surrounding wilderness is unmatched. The staff is most welcoming and friendly. Food was terrific – the best we had in Namibia definitely. Game drives exciting with lots of wildlife.
We will definitely visit GocheGanas again, that’s for sure.

On our honeymoon through the center and the west of Namibia we have seen many beautiful lodges. Wonderful impressions on the entire trip had culminated in the last days in Goche Ganas.

An incredibly nice team, the loving assistance and the incredible proximity to the Wild have made for an incredible experience our stay.

Aufzahlenreichen game drives have seen a six-day-old baby rhino and gather many other wonderful impressions.

A real treat was the Wellnesstunden, the beautiful ambience and delicious food gave us wonderful days.

A very heartfelt thanks
Alexandra & Markus

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Service was great and the food was the best in Namibia. We made use of the spa facilities...indoor pool, color therapy bath and massages...what an excellent way to end an holiday in Namibia. We can truly recommend this little piece of heaven in the middle of nature.

Nice place , conveniently located , not too far from Woindhoek . Has an elegant spa to relax , swimming pool available .

good food , but no vegetarian food . need to keep some dishes for veggies . Hotel Transport from Parking to Hotel ( a short drive .. 1 km ) is rickety .. gives a bad impression . Keep an elegant ,good condition vehicle .

As a travel agent we stayed in this lodge in november for 3 nights as a start of our Namibia trip. This is really a nice place, I can recommend this to everybody as a start or end of your holiday. Close to Windhoek, we just went there shopping for some hours, close to the airport. Early check in is no problem at all, very warm welcome. Staff is trained well, they try to make a real contact with you, so if you are open for that, you can have a lot of fun with them like we had! Food, breakfast and dinner is good, service as well. One small point is that the guide of their game drives, was disappointing, he did not tell much, was not enthusiastic, did not care much. Chalets are very nice, outdoor shower, big bath rooms. The pool and the view is the best! Pool is very clean. We did also the bush walk ourselves, very nice. The rhinos are now behind a fence, they food them there, because there has been a kind of disease.
Again, my compliments for this lodge, and as a travel agent I know the good places like this

An oasis away from the noise of the city.
we stayed there for 2,5 days to celebrate our 3rd year in marriage. Our bungalow was Helliodoor nr. 3 which was modern and spacious. The spa was also not a dissapointment . At night we would sit outside on the balcony and look at stars. I enjoyed this tranquil environment.
