Due to its elaborate decor Canon Roadhouse has acquired a sort of cult status in Namibia: the good old days of the automobile are celebrated in the theme restaurant and bar. Enjoy a slice of our legendary Amarula cheesecake among coachwork arranged with loving care. The geology, flora, fauna and history of the area are explained on display boards at the Canyon Information Centre. Situated directly on the road to the Fish River Canyon, 14 km from the gate to the viewing points, Canon Roadhouse offers 24 immaculate en-suite rooms with air conditioning, a swimming pool and a petrol station.

Very nice. Every site has a tree. Ablution is stone packed, but very neat and blend in nicely with surroundings. Nice venue, restaurant, facilities, swimming pool and place to relax and chat and 'drink' in the desert!

one of the best stays during our 3 weeks journey - nice location (a lot of quiver trees around - what the region is famous for) - even saw Klipspringer while walking on the trail marked by the hotel; "the local" Oryx is feeding during afternoon within the garden(!). The details

The Canyon Roadhouse is visually a great place to visit. BUT: for South-Africans who wants to visit the place it is very expensive. The camping facilities are especially expensive. They charge per person and not for the stand. So if you are a family, you will pay an arm and a

Yes, close enough to stay as long as you have transport to the Canyon hiking route starting point (which is about 7km beyond the Hobas campsite) - therefore in my view not that close that you can walk (about 30km in total to get there) unless it is becomes part of your hike! I assume you have transport that will be able to bring you to the Canyon Roadhouse after the hike as it is about 80km by road from Ai-Ais back to the Canyon Roadhouse - you will definitely enjoy staying at the Canyon Roadhouse after the hike as you will long for a cold beer, good bed and warm shower by that time!

That can absolutely be done. Partly tarred road, partly gravel in excellent condition. Visit to the main lookout for Fish River Canyon is no problem. Only if you want to visit all three lookouts the road to #2 and especially #3 should be accessed by 4x4. We were there in August.

"All around a quadrangle, so pretty mch the same"
"Legendary location"
"This is a camp site, with individual lodge style rooms - but we used the camp site only - along with pool and bar of course,"
"Camping site 10 is large providing a covered area as protection against the elements."
"The rooms are all the same in a semi circle"
US$21 - US$223 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
