Wellness is a holistic approach to health that combines all aspects of physical, mental and spiritual well-being to realign mind, body and soul. It is a place where the noise of your busy life is drowned out by the whispers of tranquillity - a place where you can draw upon the strength of a healthy body and the sanctuary of your inner calm.
The Wellness Village consists of 11 specialist treatment rooms featuring state of the art equipment, a heated indoor swimming pool under a cathedral like masonry vault, an outdoor swimming pool on the Oasis Peninsula affording breathtaking views, a granite bath (cave sauna), Kneipp showers and also include fitness, gym and yoga facilities, fruit and juice bar.
A large variety of special packages and wellness treatments are offered at GocheGanas Nature Reserve & Wellness Village, ranging from outdoor massages to de-stress and detoxification packages, ThalassO treatments as well as personal training and nutritional consultations.

Game drives at GocheGanas in Namibia is a very popular activity. Game drives commence early mornings and late afternoons, including a halfway stop where snacks and drinks are served in the bush. The qualified guides will share their knowledge on Namibia's flora, fauna and the variety of interesting bird species. Every game drive has its unique highlights, one of which is GocheGanas' Rhino family.
The owners of GocheGanas Nature Reserve made and exciting discovery of ancient stone age caverns located only a few kilometers from the Lodge. They discovered stone tools and a variety of pottery shards confirmed to be between 2000 and 9000 years old. It appears as though the natural hot water spring on GocheGanas could have been the reason for stone age humans to settle down here. A visit to the Stone Age Caverns lasts about 2 and a half hours, which includes a drive to the site and thereafter a short walk to the Caverns. On the way back to the lodge you will stop for sundowners and snacks.
