About Fish River Lodge

Fish River Lodge in southern Namibia is the only lodge perched directly on the rim of the Fish River Canyon, offering guests breathtaking views of the canyon from sunrise to sunset.

Twenty spacious chalets are positioned along the rim with sufficient distance between each other to ensure privacy and quiet at all times. Dry-packed stone walls cover the outer chalets and large windows offer light and views over the canyon whilst at night, guests can watch falling stars through the rooftop windows above. Each chalet has a separate shower, dressing facility, double basins, toilet and fan, whilst an additional outdoor shower offers a chance to cool down under the stars on warm nights. An outdoor 'bed' is available to guests who would like to sleep under the stars.

The main lodge caters for indoor and outdoor living given the extremes of weather that can be experienced throughout the year. Good home-cooked food with stylish touches is served on glowing handcrafted tables from reclaimed wood next to crackling fires in winter or outside on the deck in summer. Drinks can be enjoyed in the indoor or outdoor bar area overlooking a swimming pool.

Experience first hand the geological forces that unfolded 300 million years ago, when the Fish River began to etch its way through hard quartzite, forming a Canyon 90 kilometres long, 549 metres deep and 28 kilometres wide in some places, making it the world's second largest Canyon.

          The Fish River lodge was an invigorating experience. The facility is located on the edge of the Canyon providing breath taking views of the canyon. The facility itself is well appointed and luxurious. The staff are exceptional, friendly and very accommodating. Food is excellent, although lunch is light and limited. On the down side, signage and directions are poor. We, and as we learned, many others landed at the wrong place - Canyon lodge (Roadhouse), 450km from the Fish River lodge. Also I think the facility should inform patrons of the19km 'trail' to the lodge -a sedan would not make it,...

          This lodge is built in an excellent location, with an incredible view, expecially during the evening and the night. It's a good lodge, but only the location is excellent. Due to the price and description I was expectig a much better kind of facilities (that's why I rated it only 2 stars). The restaurant does not give you any option about the dinner, which is really nothing special. I believe 3 is the correct star rating for this lodge.When I arrived the esternal lights (as well as an esternal shower) didn't work in both the chalets I booked, and they never fixed them; they fixed only the...
