Location was excellent. Just out of Swakopmund. In the heart ❤ of the desert. We could see the moon landscape from the lodge. The room's was clean and beautify decorated. The staff friendly and helpful. We went for a mtb ride, just outside the lodge, and saw lots of animal footprints 👣

The pictures on the website do not do justice to this place. You truly have to see and experience it for yourself. Gecko Ridge is beautiful, the environment and scenery has been labored with love. The staff provided us with good service, the meals were succulent, although the breakfast could improve on the variety on a day to day basis....

We were very suprised at how well equipped and maintained the self catering units are. We were greeted by a very helpful host who was very welcoming. I was very doubtful about the location but once i settled in, it felt like home. Added to my favourites as a definite second home away from home.
