Overview

Behind Canyon Roadhouse can be found Canyon Road Campsite: a collection of small campsites beside a dry riverbed against a backdrop of rocky mountains that offers an authentic in-the-wilderness experience suitable for groups or families.

Guest accommodation consists of 10 campsites, with a maximum of 10 people per campsite. Each campsite features its own ablution blocks and campfire, for which wood can be purchased at the main reception. The main lodge features a restaurant, bar, and communal swimming pool, as well as free Wi-Fi service.

Situated behind Canyon Roadhouse on the privately-owned Gondwana Canyon Park, Canyon Road Campsite provides a great base from which to go out and explore Fish River Canyon. There are unguided morning hikes, guided sunset walks, and Canyon and scenic drives. There are also guided excursions to the canyon viewpoints, 3-4 day superlative canyon trail hikes, and 4x4 drives through the so-called ‘Wildebeest Route’ towards Canyon Lodge and Canyon Village to view zebra and wildebeest on the grassy plains.

Like Canyon Roadhouse, this campsite is slightly further away from Fish River Canyon than Canyon Lodge and Canyon Village. But, positioned next to a hill, the site offers great views of the surrounding area: watching the sun set behind the Holoog Mountain over the Gondwana Canyon Park is very special.

This is a good place for families to visit. Children of all ages are welcome at Canyon Road Campsite and there are a number of activities in which they can participate, including hiking trails and excursions to the Fish River Canyon.

  • 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
