"Gocheganas Lodge & Spa review"

1 night Arrived 20 Apr 2011
"We'd saved this as a pampering stop at the end of our holiday. Sadly our plans went awry when unseasonally late rains on the day of our arrival meant a flash river cut off Gocheganas from the roads - preventing our early arrival

The staff at Wilderness Safaris and Gocheganas were very helpful (Wilderness let us park their car overnight in their compound, whilst Gocheganas came and got us in an ex-military amphibous truck when big 4x4s could cross the river).

When we finally got to the Lodge, the staff were welcoming and the rooms and facilities were amazing!!! We didn't get to indulge in any pampering but it looked to be popular and worth treating yourself.

There looked to be plenty of wildlife - we could see giraffes on the hills from our room and an oryx was contentedly munching the flowers by our front door - and the scenery was amazing with great panoramic views." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia

"Gocheganas Lodge & Spa review"

2 nights Arrived 16 Oct 2010
"Wonderful final two nights. Lucky enough to be given the Crown suite with huge deck and separate lounge room. Lovely furnishings and facilities in the bed and bath rooms.

Fabulous full board food and delightful service from very friendly staff. The personable manager was very much in evidence and hands .

Enjoyed the self guided walk several times (a bit limiting that there is only one marked route) and it was good to see rhino and giraffe on foot. Lovely elevated position with great views of the bush and wildlife below and we are looking forward to our third visit already.

The spa complex is well maintained and attractive and the quality of treatments from very professional staff, high.The gym equipment is a bonus." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Relaxing stay in Gocheganas"

1 night Arrived 23 Oct 2009
"The service was excellent - everyone was helpful and friendly. We were offered free 'Honeymoon Crystal Bath' - which was a very kind and nice gesture! We unfortunately had to cancel this as we also wanted to do some mountain biking. We had managed to get Little Kulala to book our massages the day before, but it might be worth mentioning to guests that they should book massages etc a few days before to ensure you get to all you want to!

Food was very good and it was an great stop over. but we probably would not spend more than a night.

The rooms had fantastic views and had everything we needed but were 'functional' - however we were were now comparing to Little Kulala!" See all these reviews: 5n in Namibia

"Gocheganas Wellness Village review"

2 nights Arrived 24 Sep 2009
"A perfect place to finish a trip (or perhaps even to begin one). It is an hour's drive to the airport and the spa offers all the relaxation you could want.

The game reserve also has a lot of animals and is great for walking or mountain biking. It has more of a hotel feel to it than a lodge feel.

The rooms were nice but unfortunately on the first night our room was infested with insects, Gocheganas were obviously aware of the issue and as soon as we complained they moved us to a different room." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia
