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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
