We booked the lodge for a family holiday trip and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the lodge - what a stunning place! Views were incredible and the placement of the bungalows is awesome - you get a feeling of infinity and openness. What was also impressive is the green energy supply, as well as the conservation thereof. Please...

The location of the lodge at the edge of Fish River Canyon is breathtaking. Each little chalet has a great view! Rooms are very clean, and we can recommend the day trip to the ground of the canyon which is offered at the lodge.

A fantastic position on top of the canyon, but a little bit run down in the last years. The outside shower was working properly, the inside shower was only drizzeling. All the upholstery was dirty, the door lock was bent. When the wind blows, which happens very often, doors and windows are rattling. The dress code and behavior of other...

The Fish River Lodge has experienced phenomenal occupancy over the past 12 months. This success in turn has a direct impact on the wear and tear of the lodge. We are happy to advise that the lodge will be closing for 2 weeks in January 2017 at which time a comprehensive repairs and maintenance project will be undertaken which will...

The trip to the lodge is definitely worthwhile. After reading the description of the road there, I was apprehensive. But the road wasn't as bad as the description made it sound to me. Most of the rocks are small stones and the road is very drive-able. Although I saw two sedans that made the trip, I was glad to have...

I would actually prefer to rate this lodge as "Good" rather than "Average", but that is not an option. The lodge itself is very nice, but the terrible access road to it does severely impact upon one's enjoyment and appreciation of the view; Personally, if you want the view I would rather recommended flying in to the lodge airstrip, or...

The 19 km to the lodge is a challenging experience but was more than worth it. On the arrival after 1h the view was breathtaking. It was to hot for hiking in the canyon, but we did the sundower tour with a very nice guide , appetizers and gin tonic for the sunset. A beautiful moment at the canyon. All...

This is a isolated location with a view that no other accommodation offers! It has modern African architecture and interiors in a prime location. The food was equal to the setting. The wind might be a problem for some but for us it was part of the ambience.

The view is epic...no doubt. The staff and food is also wonderful. They do allow small birds in the restaurant however and they can be seen picking at the breakfast bar and excreting in the dinning area which is not pleasant or hygienic. The rooms look great, but thats about it. All style, and little substance. The wind is fierce...

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the staff and food at Fish River Lodge and we are pleased that you enjoyed the location. We note your comments on birds sharing the breakfast buffet table. This is a challenge all Lodges in wild and remote places face; how to find a way of sharing our environment with the very creatures...

This is a very unique lodge right at the edge of the canyon. It is incredible waking up with this view. The staff is absolutely friendly and professional, the rooms are clean and are cleaned every day. It's definitely worth a trip!

This is a place you have to stay more than one night ! The landscape is just beautiful, sleeping under the stars... is a fantastic experience, unique ! Staying there is beetwen earth and sky, listening the wind, birds or the silence is just perfect. Time hasn't right here, just breathe and live this time
