"Beautiful"

stayed two nights at the resort. we were welcomed liked kings and gave us room number 1. at first, we thought is might be noisy but not at all. the restaurant is still past reception and the bar area even further. the room is very big and we had everything we wanted. we booked ourselves for a back and neck massage and it was excellent.

the lodge is very well maintained and the food was very good both nights. will definitely go again in the near future.

"Unforgettable"

I came to GocheGanas in March 2014 and have not stopped thinking about it since. Excellent food, gorgeous and earthy rooms, breathtaking views. So very relaxing and with everything we could have needed. I would absolutely recommend staying here.

"Smashing!"

Even now, after my 4th stay: There is hardly any wording appropriate to the gracious lodge staff and the exquisite cuisine, not to mention the marvellous and mystical nature all around. I will come back soon, and once a year at least.

"Heaven on Earth"

Whenever we visit Namibia we deem it compulsory to spend a night or two at the GOCHEGANS Resort. The warm hospitality of the owner family Stritter and their well trained staff is absolutely extraordinary. The accommodation in luxury chalets situated on a hill, overlooking the farm and having direct access to the game wandering around. There are more than 1.500 pieces of wild animals, amongst them approx. 20 Rhinos. Mr. Udo Stritter and his son Ingo developed the beautiful set up 10 years ago. It is still outstanding what the owners are investing in the heritage of nature conservation and wild animals. We were deeply impressed by everything we saw and experienced.

By the way, the Restaurant and the Bar (both with thatch roof, as all other buildings as well) are unique and serving best food and wine.
Another feature of the quiet place is the Wellness Resort. You are treated like a king. What can top a massage in the open air surrounded by wild animals?
Not only the outdoor pool, but also an indoor poll gives the opportunity for sport and fun.

Last but not least it is worthy mentioned that GocheGanas is well situated; only some 25 miles from the capital Windhoek. The international airport is only an hour's drive away.

OMUHONA SAFARIS recommends this beautiful resort to be visited whenever possible. Everything is like out of the movie "Out of Africa". Everybody who feels to deserve a better treatment should really call at GOCHEGANAS.

"Like coming home"

This was my 4th stay in GocheGanas, three times I stayed there with our film crew, we produced three TV Movies for German TV and I always wanted to come back and share the beauty and style of this Lodge with my wife and children. This year in June we finally made it and it was like coming home. My kids and wife loved the room and facilities and the outstanding view. Some of the staff was still there, the last film was in 2008, and we had tears in the eyes, seeing each other again. it was FAMILY. The Ladies in our family are vegetarian and the cook produced some delicious meals for them, my son was eager to try the Oryx Steak and loved it.

So now I just eagerly wait to come back again, I'm in love with this place and I'm honest about that. And it's so close to Windhoek, I would always recommend GocheGanas as a start or a beautiful relaxation possibilty after a journey to the north of Namibia.
Best regards to you folks over there Timothy Peach Munich Germany
PS: And a brand new Mountain Bike, wow, must admit it slightly killed me after the wonderful dinner and breakfast, a new possibility to see the animals, great !

"Eine tolle Lodge vor den Toren von Windhoek"

Die Lodge liegt auf einem Hügel und kann eine wundervolle Sicht von der Terrasse über die Weite Namibias genießen. Hier kann man gut ankommen oder zum Schluss seines Urlaubes die Reise ausklingen lassen. Wir haben die Lodge als Start gewählt und waren sehr zufrieden mit dieser Unterkunft. Die Bungalows sind sehr geräumig und groß. Im Bad befindet sich ein Heizstrahler über der Wanne,das WC befindet sich in einem separaten Raum. Auf dem Gelände kann man sich frei bewegen und es gibt einen ausgeschilderten Wanderweg.

Das Abendessen wird als 3-Gänge-Menü gereicht und hatte eine sehr gute Qualität. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und nicht aufdringlich. Das Frühstück gab es in Buffetform und lies keine Wünsche offen. Das Omelette oder Rührei wurde frisch vom Personal zubereitet. Von der Terrasse des Restaurant genießt man wundervolle Sonnenuntergänge.

"Wohlfühloase Afrikas"

Auf Goche Ganas ankommen und sich im Himmel fühlen! Schon auf der Fahrt zur Lodge wird man von den Wildtieren begrüßt. Das Empfangskomitee ist einzigartig und man spürt, angekommen zu sein. Grandiose Unterkunft, liebenswertes Personal, kulinarisch ein Höhepunkt. Wir kommen demnächst wieder

"Breathtaking Hotspot"

My wife and I stayed three nights at Gocheganas and were deeply impressed by this unique nature experience. A beautiful lodge on a hilltop with a breathtaking panoramic view of the beautiful nature. A special experience for us was when we saw on the way to the lodge a rhino mother with her baby.
We were personally greeted by the lodge manager, the staff was very friendly and always had a smile for us left. The restaurant also has a wonderful panoramic view and indeed offers a small menu, but offers an excellent quality. We were very surprised that in the wilderness such a quality is at all possible. Our luxurious villa left nothing to be desired: A large tub, an outdoor shower, a comfortable big bed .... and all with a beautiful view. On the own beautiful terrace, we were able to observe animals and listen to the different animal noises while we drank a very nice red wine. The highlight for us was a game drive early in the morning. We have seen so many different animals and plants. Actually we haven´t expected something like this so Close to Windhoek. If we will be again in Namibia once again we, will stay again determined on Gocheganas.

"Tranquil sanctuary just outside of town"

Gocheganas is a real oasis, but one with amazing food and great staff. From the waiters, bar tenders and management staff...all friendly and outstanding.
Their bloody mary kept me warm as did their amazing beds and duvets.
A fantastic place to stay, but stay for at least 2 nights to get the most out of this relaxing experience.

"Tonight is our last night at GocheGanas, we can't believe how this week has flown past. Tomorrow we will leave to explore the rest of Namibia for another week before it is back to desks and reality at home. We have been treated like royalty, and we couldn't imagine a better place to relax after all the stresses of a wedding day. We've had the most incredible week and will remember this forever. The meals, service, spa facilities - everything has been amazing and we will certainly remember this week for many moons to come.”

Auch für uns war die GocheGanas Lodge der ideale Start in unsere Namibia Rundreise. Im Nachhinein war es die Lodge, in der alles passte, und wir hatte Lodges, die teilweise doppelt so teuer waren.
Was uns positiv aufgefallen ist:
Heizstrahler im Badezimmer
Toilette in einem abgetrennten, separaten Raum. In anderen Lodges waren die Toiletten z.B. nach oben hin offen.
Abends gab es Wärmflaschen.
Nachmittags Kaffee & Kuchen.
Reichhaltiges Frühstücksbuffet.
Sehr gutes Abendessen.
Freundliches und zuvorkommendes Personal.
Vielfältiges Spa-Angebot.
Möglichkeit selber wandern zu gehen. Gekennzeichneter Wanderweg.

Ganz herzlichen Dank für die Zeit auf dem sehr schönen GocheGanas. Wir haben es sehr genossen.
Alle Rhinos wurden beim Game Drive gesehen, besser geht es nicht!
GocheGanas passt perfekt als Abschluss einer Tour und verlockt zu einer Verlängerung. - Johann from Berlin

Wardenburg - Deutschland

Am Ende unserer erlebnisreichen Rundreise durch Namibia haben wir hier noch weitere vier schöne und erholsame Tage verbracht.

Die Anfahrt zur Lodge, die Chalets auf dem Plateau, die Stille, die netten Menschen, und dann die spektakuläre Rundumsicht auf die einzigartige Landschaft sind wirklich atemberaubend.

Die Nähe zu den vielen wilden Tiere sind einfach unbeschreiblich. In den vier Tagen haben wir auf GocheGanas mehr wilde Tiere gesehen, wie auf der gesamten 14-tägigen Rundreise. Bereits auf der 5 km langen Anfahrt durch das Nature Reserve zur Lodge liefen uns ein Schakal und ein Zebra über den Weg. Große Herden Gnus, Springböcke, Elandantilopen, Steppenzebras, Oryxe und Kudus, mindestens 30 Giraffen, Wasserböcke, Warzenschweine und Bergzebras konnten wir direkt von unserer Terrasse aus beobachten.

Bei einer abendlichen Wildbeobachtungsfahrt zusammen mit Frau Annemarie und Herrn Udo Stritter durch das 6.000 Hektar große Naturreservat konnte Herr Armstrong uns dann auch noch 5 Breitmaulnashörner aus der Nähe präsentieren.

Und beim anschließenden Sundowner mit kühlen Getränken und einem kleinen Imbiss kurz vor einem kräftigen Gewitter bei wolkenbedecktem Himmel haben wir dann auch noch unseren schönsten Sonnenuntergang in Namibia erlebt.

Vielen herzlichen Dank an das gesamte Personal, und besonders an den Lodge Manager Herrn Reinhold Risser für die schönen Tage.

Bei der freundlichen familiären Atmosphäre, dem immer netten Personal und dem leckeren Essen fühlten wir uns fast wie zu Hause.

Wir kommen bestimmt mal wieder.

Liebe Grüße aus Wardenburg

I visited GocheGanas with two friends for a few days. It was an absolutely fantastic holiday - relaxation, wildlife, adventure and superb treatments. The trip from the airport via Windhoek to the beautiful nature reserve was swift and pleasant. The lodge and the wellness village are truly unique, WOW. The view is breathtaking and the surrounding wilderness is unmatched. The staff is most welcoming and friendly. Food was terrific - the best we had in Namibia definitely. Game drives exciting with lots of wildlife.
We will definitely visit GocheGanas again, that's for sure.

On our honeymoon through the center and the west of Namibia we have seen many beautiful lodges. Wonderful impressions on the entire trip had culminated on the last days at Goche Ganas. An incredibly nice team, the loving assistance and the incredible proximity to the Wild have made for an incredible experience our stay. On game drives we have seen a six-day-old baby rhino and gather many other wonderful impressions.
A real treat was the Wellness offer, the beautiful ambience and delicious food gave us wonderful days.

A very heartfelt thanks

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Service was great and the food was the best in Namibia. We made use of the spa facilities...indoor pool, color therapy bath and massages...what an excellent way to end a holiday in Namibia. We can truly recommend this little piece of heaven in the middle of nature.

"Unvergesslich"

Wer hierher kommt, wird diesen Ort sein Leben lang nicht vergessen. Gelegen auf einem Hügel mit 360-Grad-Rundumsicht erwartet den Gast ein absoluter Traum von einer Lodge. Ein Ausblick in die nicht enden wollenden Weiten afrikanischer Ursprünglichkeit. Man wohnt in separaten und sehr großzügigen Apartments mit eigenem Balkon. Das Restaurant und die Bar bieten neben dem fantastischen Ausblick und überaus freundlichem Personal hervorragende Speisen mit einheimischen Schwerpunkten. Besonders ist auch das SPA-Angebot mit Pools (innen und außen) sowie fachkundigen Massagen.

I've visited GocheGanas for the second time. It's the perfect accommodation around Windhoek for starting or ending your roundtrip thru Namibia. A luxurious lodge, heartily staff, friendly-familiar atmosphere, perfect dinning and spectacular view. A special experience this May 2013: On our afternoon Game-Drive we were the first who saw the one day old rhino baby! - Munich, Germany

My wife and I stayed at GocheGanas close to Windhoek and the international airport. This spa has both indoor and outdoor pools and the wellness center includes sauna plus the ability to have all sorts of massages & treatments. The restaurant and bar is top notch and the food we had here was some of the best we had during our 3 weeks in Namibia. The breakfast not only included all the stuff you would normally get but it was the only place we stayed that offered smoked salmon with bagels, capers and fixings. At the top of a knoll this place has 360 degree views from the restaurant and very expansive views from every room. If you want a place to hang out, GocheGanas is going to be hard to beat. The rooms are modern and spacious and I particularly liked the large bathtub and view from the bath. For those who are looking to Namibia for animal experiences and you are interested in Rhinos, this is the place. Although it is not guaranteed, you almost certainly will see more Rhinos than you had seen anywhere else. The other animal you are likely to see are giraffes and you will likely see them in very large numbers. - Los Angeles, California
