Overview

Canyon Lodge is one of a few places to stay as part of the Fish River Canyon experience in Namibia. It is the closest to the River out of the three abodes, situated on the privately-owned Gondwana Canyon Park, and thus provides a great base from which to go out and explore Fish River Canyon.

As with its sister lodges, Canyon Lodge offers guests the chance to go on unguided morning hikes, guided sunset walks, and take Canyon and scenic drives. There is a plethora of game here to spot, big and small, but knowledge of the area is often required to get the best sightings.

Guest accommodation consists of 25 thatched, natural stone and wood bungalows. Each chalet is fitted with en-suite facilities, and offers great views of the surrounding area.

The main lodge is a highlight of the Canyon Lodge. It is built in the shelter of a granite hilltop amongst huge boulders to blend in with its natural environment, which inevitably brings more game closer to the camp. There is an indoor restaurant and bar that suit the lodge’s farmhouse aesthetic.

Whilst the local stone-build of the lodge means it remains cool on hot days, this also means that there is limited natural light inside the lodge. Guests can relax on the shaded terrace, or rest beside the outdoor swimming pool. The surrounding landscape is offered up as a spectacular view from the lodge, and often is gazed at with a sundowner. True to its farming roots, Canyon Lodge has a self-sufficiency centre where the lodge’s own butchery, dairy, and smokehouse are found and provide fresh food for a quality and homely dining experience.

Children of all ages are welcome at Canyon Lodge. Children staying at Canon Lodge can participate in a number of activities, from horse-riding to scenic nature drives. Children can also go on trips to the self-sufficiency centre, where they can visit the farm animals and help out in the vegetable garden. There are 2 family rooms and two triple rooms in addition to the standard double guest rooms.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
