The communal ablution facilities are modern and provide all essential conveniences. A separate utility area for washing dishes and doing laundry is also available.

Q Activities

Swakopmund is undeniably Namibia’s playground, a holiday destination for tourists and locals alike. Sandwiched between the crashing Atlantic waves and the ancient Namib Desert, Swakopmund is one of those must-see destinations. Swakopmund is Namibia’s adventure capital and surreal colonial remnant, launch pad for an exploration of the Skeleton Coast and Namib Desert. With its seaside promenades and pervasive Gemütlichkeit, coupled with its thoroughly African appeal, this is a city with as much personality as sea frontage.

Welcome to Gecko Ridge

Gecko Ridge Guest House is a real oasis in an isolated location about 15km inland from Swakopmund, along the Swakop river.

There are many people who enjoy visiting the beautiful and picturesque town of Swakopmund for its excellent shopping or the multitude of activities available there. However some prefer to retire at the end of the day to somewhere more peaceful - somewhere they can relax in peace and quiet, and prepare for their next day in town, or the long drive home.

Gecko Ridge 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 this is the ideal place for you.

Beautiful wooden sun decks overhanging ponds of running water allow for a well deserved sun-downer to be enjoyed in idyllic circumstances, while taking in the amazing sunset over the Namib Desert and the '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.
