WHen I came in at 17 o'clock nobody was at the reception. At dinner everybody seemed to be responsible . I would like better to have only one Person who attends. At breakfast scrambled eggs took 20 mmiutes. Why not prepare all omlett orders at once?

The accommodation was absolutely beautiful. Our room was a cave! Stunning! We had advised the accommodation in advance that my husband is gluten intolerant and that we were travelling with two small children. Neither part of this was taken into comsodsration for dinner. It's not the kind of location where there is much alternative from a food perspective so three...

I was welcomed and well taken care of as a solo traveler. The facilities are clean and well maintained. Clarisha was especially amazing, and always went above and beyond her customer service duties. While Canyon Lodge is better suited did couples, I would recommend it to anyone that visits Fish River Canyon

Chalets near Fish River . Beautiful gorge with the winding Fish River running through it. Unfortunately the water was so low that it was a gorge. Nice short hike from the old view point to the new area.

A short drive from the Canyon - but it is easy to get lost as the street directions are not good. So make sure that you have the right direction. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises can be viewed from the lodge. Helpful staff.

Overall excellent. The staff are all friendly and happy to serve you, nothing was too much bother. A good stopping off point to view the canyon. Everything was clean, and well maintained. Rooms are all individually different and special. The view from the pool - just fantastic

Brilliant location of the chalets among the rock formations. It is like an oasis in the desert. The staff was very friendly and the food very good. If we ever come back to this area we will definitely choose to stay at Canyon Lodge.

We to my parents there for 3 nights. Awesome little huts, great nature, nice few from the pool. Oryx were grasing in between the huts at night.

Enjoyed our stay here, lovely pool with a great view, sundowner location is great. Fantastic that the Oryx are walking in between the bungalows. I had a little situation/misunderstanding at checkout, after contacting management they set things straight fastly and reimbursed me. Nice service thanks!

Exceptional Bungalow Lodge in the middle of the desert near fish river Canyon. Fantastic view from the Swimmingpool over the endless desert. Bungalows are build directly into the rocks. They are a bit small, but overall ok. Dinner on the wide Terrasse was very good, also nice view.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The harsh rocky desert region at the southern tip of Namibia has made many a traveller think that God has forgotten this land. Not so, just 20 kilometres from the main viewpoint of the Fish River Canyon, leading off the dusty D324, you’ll find the Canon Lodge, an oasis seemingly in the middle of nowhere. The Canon Lodge is one of two existing accommodation centres in the expanse of the 530 km² Gondwana Canon Park. Tall weather-beaten granite boulders mark the location of the lodge and forms an integral part of the overall design. The 20 thatch stone bungalows are dotted among the kopies and are beautifully designed, with the walls shaped around the hills so that boulders protrude into your room, cool to the touch and smoothly rounded by an eternity of erosion. ... more   less
