Gecko Ridge Guesthouse is an oasis in the desert wilderness, about 15 km inland from Swakopmund. Many people visit the picturesque town of Swakopmund for its excellent shopping or its multitude of activities. However, some prefer to retire at the end of the day to somewhere more peaceful - somewhere to relax in peace and quiet, and prepare for the next day in town, or the long drive home. Gecko Ridge Guesthouse perfectly satisfies that need. Do you enjoy being pampered in a restful and relaxing atmosphere? Are you looking for the ultimate in style and luxury in a peaceful and tranquil environment? If so, then Gecko Ridge is the ideal place for you.
In this quiet location, an outdoor lapa and a number of bedrooms overlook a large, partially enclosed swimming pool. Beautiful wooden sundecks overhanging ponds of running water allow for a well deserved sundowner to be enjoyed in idyllic circumstances, while taking in the amazing sunset over the Namib Desert and the famous 'moon landscape'.
Just beyond the coastal fog line, Gecko Ridge rarely suffers the damp misty mornings often experienced in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, and instead mostly enjoys radiant blue skies and beautiful sun all day long, making it eminently suitable for those who just want to get away from it all, or wish to arrange a private function or a year-end celebration. Whatever your needs or wishes, Gecko Ridge provides an ideal alternative, a luxury hide-away, for those who want to leave behind the hurly-burly and bustle of Swakopmund at the end of the day.
Gecko Ridge Campsite: Ten spacious and semi-enclosed campsites are available. Ablution blocks with all essential conveniences are shared. A separate utility area for laundry and washing dishes can also be found.
