Fodor's Expert Review GocheGanas

20 km along D1463 to South of Windhoek, Windhoek, Khomas, Namibia

Just on the outskirts of Windhoek, this well-appointed lodge has all the safari charm and sophistication of a luxury lodge. Perched on top of a rocky hill, in a 6,000-hectare (14,000-acre) reserve, the lodge blends in with the surrounding countryside due to the use of natural elements in the building and decor. Glossy wooden chalets have thatched roofs and sunken baths that look out over the bush. Two waterholes, on either side, are well-visited all day long by antelope and even white rhino. GocheGanas offers a unique wellness village with a hot pool—set in a high-roofed cave-room—surrounded by warm loungers, a spa, and endless bush views. The 360-degree Toko Bar is a perfect spot to catch an African sunset before heading to a delicious Namibian dinner.
