You can drive hear with any normal car. A 4WD is not needed.
I came to Fish River Lodge with very high expectations - and I was not disappointed. The word "breathtaking" may be over-used but here it is most proper. Just staying at your room is enough. There is a platform outside. Place your bed here and sleep under the stars and wake up with the canyon at your feet.
The staff is not too "professional" but very friendly. Tell them what you want and they will do their very best. You don't come here for the food, but we got a very good springbok file and enjoyed all our meals including a nice breakfast.
There are two hikes, a short and a long. Both with stunning views. There is an evening sun-downer drive. You stop at two beautiful view points and get drinks and snacks at the last.
There is a fantastic day drive as well. It takes ca 7 hours and is well worth the high prize. Adventurous 4WD roads, we saw lots of wildlife and the stops are at places with fantastic views. We ended at some rock pools where we could swim in Fish River.
You can also do hikes with camping but we did not try that.
If you have a possibility to go here - just do it!
