Poorly maintained. The same pitcher of water was there from the day before. Lazy staff. However the employees in the restaurant were very gracious and the food...

Our lodge was stunning & the facilities of the spa were very good. The staff were friendly & welcoming. The only downside from my point of view was the lack of choice on the evening meal.

GocheGanas is an amazing spa venue. Set in the middle of Namibian countryside in an animal reserve- it is indeed like heaven on earth. Facilities are simple and comfortable.
