Reviewed yesterday NEW

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. Food (vegetarian and buffet) and catering depended on the stuff of the day... rather sad! No Cappuccions, what we would have loved in the morning. We went one day to Ai Ais, what...

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.

This lodge has amazing atmosphere. Located amongst impressive rock formations with bungalows designed to blend into the surroundings. Just a pity that the catering does not match the accommodation standard. A three course dinner was offered at loaded price. The calamari starter was unedible, the buffet main nothing special and the dessert tasteless.

My return visit after 13 years and this place is a magical as I remembered it. The geology, the desert, the peace and tranquillity.

Nice rooms in small houses in a big green garden where the Orxys come to eat the grass, the pool is located a few meters away from the rest of the lodge, a terasse in front of the restaurant so you can eat dinner and breakfast outside if the weather is fine, climb up the hill for the sunset, it's...

A large spread with small huts built into the landscape, green grassed areas amongst the desert. Our room was some distance from the main Lodge and it was quite difficult with heavy bags on departure, we could have asked for help as the staff were extremely obliging. The pool was situated a long way from the Lodge and in a...

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
