All roads lead to Swakopmund. At least this is true for most visitors travelling Namibia. With its rich heritage, myriad of activities and easy-going vibe, this picturesque coastal town offers a welcome respite for holidaymakers.
Gecko Ridge, only 15 km from the pulsating centre, is an oasis in its own right. Surrounded by rocky plains of the Namib, our desert retreat lies sheltered among large rustling palm trees and flourishing gardens. Panoramic views stretch far beyond the green vein of the Swakop river snaking through the arid land and the mystical moon landscape bearing silent witness to ancient geological forces.
Gecko Ridge is one more secret the oldest desert on earth holds and we invite you to share it with us.
At Gecko Ridge our desire is to please. As everyone has different requirements we offer a portfolio of three uniquely different accommodation options.
The ultimate in terms of luxury and comfort for the weary traveller or the most refined connoisseur. Your every need is anticipated to make your stay a truly memorable experience.
Ideal for a weekend getaway or holiday near the sea, combining self-sufficiency with style and comfort. It’s all about the good times – relax and spend precious moments with family.
With clear skies most days and nights, campers can look forward to experiencing the desert at its best. Secluded and private, tomorrow’s adventure starts here.
We have sunshine and warm weather on most days as Gecko Ridge lies outside the fog line, which often envelopes Swakopmund
Free WiFi Internet
At Gecko Ridge you can enjoy the best Wi-Fi Namibia has to offer – for free. You can surf the net, keep in touch with friends and family back home or bring your work with you if you absolutely need to
No vacation would be quite complete without spending time at the pool and Gecko Ridge is one of the very few establishments which offers this luxury in the middle of the desert
Gecko Ridge is about family, also the furry members. A small enclosed garden adjoins our Self-Catering chalets where your pets can play safely
At Gecko Ridge we take your well-being seriously. With several secluded lounge areas, you will find your favourite spot to relax and recharge

If you want to take a break from driving or don’t have a car, we gladly arrange for a private chauffeur for the day
A hearty breakfast buffet and à la carte dinner is served in our generous lapa restaurant. In the evenings you will be welcomed by crackling fires dancing to their own tunes. Enjoy an al fresco sundowner from our panorama deck, a pre-dinner aperitif or soothing nightcap in one of our comfortable lounge bars.

Business is all about connecting with people. At Gecko Ridge you can get your team’s creative juices flowing or make an impression on your clients. The conference centre can comfortably accommodate up to 150 people, but if you are looking for something smaller don’t worry we have that too. We provide a suitable space for effective meetings, workshops or team building events.
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.
