The GocheGanas is around an hours drive from Windhoek "International" Airport. So it is a good place to start or end a tour through Namibia. The villas are spacious with indoor bathroom and outdoor shower. Most of them provide an impressive view of the landscape / park. Cleanness, amenities, etc. are "Namibian Style": Don't expect top-quality. The food is ok,...

I didn't sleep there. Only went there for the afternoon game drive which is quite nice! During the 3 hours game drive we saw : kudus, springboks, oryx, duikers, ostriches, waterbucks, black and blue wildebeests, mountain and plain zebras, lots of giraffes and 3 white rhinos. Really not bad for a Game Reserve so close to Windhoek. At the end...

We felt very comfortable from the first minute, everything very clean and in very good condition. The staff is well trained, always friendly and attentive. The quality of the food is outstanding.

Property is fantastic. Rooms are luxurious for a game reserve. Full spa and a small gym. While the property is beautiful the service is lackluster. The employees in the spa couldn't be bothered. 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.
