Breathtaking location on the edge of Fish River Canyon

Stylish lodge with unbeatable location on the canyon edge

This modern and stylish property sits on the western rim of the Fish River Canyon. To get there, take a light aircraft flight to an airstrip 4km away, or take the 7-hour road journey in a 4-wheel drive from Windhoek. No other lodge is closer to the canyon rim – all the chalets and the lodge are between 5m - 8m from the edge.

Twenty spacious chalets are positioned along the canyon rim and they're sufficiently spaced to afford guests with a sense of privacy. There are six double and 14 twin rooms, each with a large walk-in pebble stone shower, a dressing room and a secluded outdoors shower adjacent to the indoor bathroom. The ceilings have all-round rooftop windows providing a spectacular view of the starry night sky. An outside bed platform next to the veranda can be made up on request for guests who like to sleep under the stars. Double rooms can be converted into family rooms for parents with (maximum) two children. No mosquito nets are required – the prevailing evening wind keeps insects away from this plateau. The main lodge has indoor and outdoor communal spaces and guests can enjoy excellent meals with a home-cooked feel. There are handcrafted tables next to crackling fires in winter, or, in summer meals may be enjoyed outside on the deck.

Activities at Fish River Lodge are centred around exploration of the canyon Strolls along the rim are along flat pathways and are suited to for all fitness levels. The one and five-day hikes do require reasonable level of fitness however, particularly when tackling the ascent and descent into and out of the canyon. The lodge offers a sundowner cycling tour on fat bikes and sundowner drives to some of the most scenically impressive spots on the plateau.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
