Overview

Fish River Lodge was built specifically so that guests could have the best view of the Fish River Canyon, and this was achieved. Its surroundings are stark, but its position on the very lip of the canyon gives it a prime spot overlooking the wilderness below and the renowned sunrise and sunset.

Guest accommodation consists of 20 chalets spread along the canyon edge. Each chalet offers an incredible panoramic view of the canyon and surrounding area from its private outside deck, and features spacious bathrooms with an optional outdoor shower. The outside deck is a great place to sleep under the stars or as a relaxing plank for yoga enthusiasts.

The main lodge has a great view of the canyon, too, as well as fantastic communal facilities such as a rim pool with a spacious wooden deck for outdoor dining. Candlelit dinners on the deck can also be arranged, and there is a big fireplace inside to warm around on cold nights.

Fish River Lodge offers a unique hiking experience led by experienced guides to small parties of guests as well as 4x4 access to the privately-owned park below. After a day’s hiking, guests will welcome the spa treatment on offer in the lodge and the quality food prepared by private chefs.

Children of all ages are welcome at Fish River Lodge, with children under the age of 6 years able to visit free of charge. However, there are not many activities available here except for game drives and hiking trails.

  • 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
