Nice self catering units in the middle of the desert. Beautiful house, lovely braai boma, something different! Take lovely walks in the desert, among beautiful countryside. View a million stars at night, after a breathtaking sunset!

We enjoyed our night's stay at Gecko Ridge. They did accommodate us with breakfast early the morning (at 06:00) as we had to leave early. The rooms are very tidy and neat as well as the property. Thank you Gecko Ridge.
