a fleeting stop

We only stayed here for a very brief overnight as we had to leave at 3am.

Rooms etc were all first class, pity we didnt have more time to enjoy it.

A luxurious stay so close to the airport.

We stayed just one night here which was a shame as the game is abundant, the accommodation luxurious and the spa treatments excellent.

The food was good but the service was the worst we had experienced in the entire trip with waiting staff having a very different, aloof attitude to guests that we had not encountered before. This was the only negative point.

The massage therapy was inexpensive (compared with UK prices) and of a very high and professional standard.

This must be a wonderful place to spend a long weekend if you live locally or in S Africa itself.

Lovely last stay

A wonderful place to stay for the last two nights of our trip. A huge room, beautifully appointed in the manner of an international hotel. Set on a lovely private estate, the facilities of this spa are extremely good and whilst not a 'wilderness' experience or a camp it is certainly a good place to stop for a couple of nights' luxury before facing a long journey home.

Facilities include a large swimming pool on a lawn with a view over a large area of bush and more distant mountain. The bush is a well-stocked game conservancy and our binoculars therefore got more use than the Kindles!

We did go on an excellent sun-downer drive with a number of other guests, and whilst the conservancy is somewhat managed, the variety of wildlife is impressive - we saw game here that we had seen nowhere else on this trip.

Food at the resort was excellent, and the dining facilities offered both indoor and outdoor seating.

Only an hour's drive from the airport, this was a great place to end our trip

The perfect end to the holiday

Gocheganas does what it says on the tin. It has a lovely spa and a fantastic swimming pool. One night here at the end of our holiday provided us with some rest and relaxation after all our travelling. It is also only a 1 1/2 drive to the airport so an unstressful end to our holiday.

The food is good but the place has a slightly corporate feel so I wouldn't recommend staying any longer than 1 night when there are so many other beautiful lodges to stay at.

Excellent lodge, great accommodation & staff

Gocheganas was a great place for us to start our holiday, not too far from Windhoek after our flights. The accommodation was huge and luxurious, with beautiful views - our boys (9 and 5) had an annex to themselves!

The food was great and the staff were very friendly - it was a lovely place to introduce ourselves to Namibia. We went on one of their safaris and saw Giraffe drinking and a couple of Rhino before sundowners watching Giraffe.

The swimming pool was great, although kids are only allowed to use the outdoor pool, which wasn't really any hardship.

A wonderful first night stop

It was a perfect introduction to the lodges we would be using during our two week stay.

Fantastic views, lovely chalet and excellent bar and restaurant area. From our chalet balcony we saw Giraffe, Buffalo, Ostrich, Springbok.

Definitely should have stayed more than one night.
