About Gecko Ridge Guest House

Situated on the outskirts of the beautiful and picturesque little coastal town of Swakopmund, Namibia, Gecko Ridge Guest House is a real oasis about 15 km from Swakopmund along the Swakop River. If you are looking for the ultimate in style and luxury, and wish to be pampered in a peaceful and tranquil environment, then this is the ideal accommodation destination for you.

Beautiful wooden sun decks situated over ponds of running water allow for a well-deserved sundowner to be enjoyed, while viewing the amazing sunsets over the Namib Desert and moon landscapes. The gym, outdoor lapa and a number of bedrooms overlook a large partially enclosed swimming pool.

Accommodation is offered in six luxury rooms and two pet-friendly self-catering chalets. Our spacious luxury rooms are ideal for the weary traveller or the most refined connoisseur, and every need has been catered for to make your stay a truly memorable experience. Our spacious self-catering chalets are ideal for the family that wants to do their own catering during a weekend or holiday by the sea, but still have a need for style and comfort. Round off your day with a relaxing swim in our beautiful swimming pool or simply lounge at the pool with your favourite novel.

A shuttle service is available on request. Just outside the fog line, Gecko Ridge enjoys beautiful sunny days and is therefore also the ideal setting for private and year-end functions.

With its old German Colonial style of architecture and beautiful setting, the town of Swakopmund is a tourist attraction in and of itself. Various modern shopping centres and restaurants are available to meet all your needs.

Spa: For the fitness conscious we have a fully equipped gymnasium available to all our guests.

Conference Venues: Gecko Ridge is the ideal setting for private and year-end functions.

After reviewing the wbsite and then deciding on Gecko Ridge with our two boys aged 10 and 12, we were given an unfinished cottage with only one open planned room! The two boys were offered a small sleeper couch. They were able to bring in another bed, but this is certainly now what is put on there website. Make sure you check which cottage you get as we were not told anything about this when we booked, so were certainly not happy!

we were a party of four, one of whom was blind.  We were made so welcome and nothing was too much for the owner and staff.  The setting was an oasis in the middle of the desert.  The house was exquisite, everything provided was of good quality and clean.  A very friendly place to stay and would certainly book again if we get the opportunity to make our way to Namibia again.  Thank you Zandre.We stayed for two nights as part of a 29 day planned trip from South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and then into Namibiai,  Gecko Ridge guest house was most certainly one of our top five bed and breakfast accom...

I'm not sure what we expected before we went on holiday here, nor what we expected as we came up to the security entrance gate, but what we found was utterly beyond our expectations. Jemimah and her colleagues laid on a 5-star meal for us that first night that would have fed an army. She and her friend took the time to sit and talk to us about absolutely everything. We had a bungalow near the main house which was modern virtually new! Good TV, WiFi and good facilities. The place was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The bungalow was a good size, with a nice view and a visit from...

A huge thank you to Zander and his team at Ghecko Ridge for making our stay there such an enjoyable one. One can really see that they put a lot of effort and love into the guest house and camping sites and it pays off! We loved our time there and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Great place!!
