Fish River Lodge - On The Edge OF Eternity
Location & Description
The Fish River Lodge is the only lodge situated directly on the edge of Namibia’s Fish River Canyon, with breath taking views over the canyon from sunrise to sunset. The Lodge has a unique design using local building materials in the construction. Dry-packed stone walls give shelter from the harsh environment and large windows allow you to contemplate 300 million years of geological history. The 45 000 hectare Canyon Nature Park is a natural sanctuary for Karoo succulent flora and endemic wildlife. Incredible hiking trails meander down into the heart of the canyon affording guests spectacular scenery combined with 75 km river frontage made up of permanent water holes and rock pools that attract Hartmann’s zebra, kudu, oryx, springbok and many other smaller wildlife species and endemic birdlife.
The Fish River Lodge offers a unique canyon hiking experience to small parties of guests. Set in the western side of the Fish River Canyon, the 45 000ha Canyon Nature Park offers exclusive hiking and 4×4 access down into the canyon where 74km of the Fish River meanders through the privately-owned park.

Twenty spacious chalets have been built right along the rim of the plato. The chalets have been spaced and positioned with sufficient distance from each other to ensure privacy and quiet at all times. The 6 double and 14 twin rooms each have a large walk-in pebble stone shower and dressing room and a secluded outside shower adjacent to the indoor bathroom. The all-round rooftop windows offer you a starry view of the night sky while you drift away to sleep. Should you prefer, our staff can move your bed outside to the bed platform next to the veranda for a night under a blanket of stars. Double rooms can be converted into family rooms for parents with maximum two children. Each room is equipped with a metal pedestal fan and small writing desk and lamp. No mosquito nets are required here since it is a malaria free area and the prevailing evening breeze keeps insects away.
The main Lodge caters for indoor and outdoor living, given the extremes of weather throughout the year. Hearty home-cooked meals with modern touches is served on handcrafted tables from reclaimed wood next to crackling fires in winter or al fresco on the deck in summer. We can cater for specific dietary requirements and children’s meals. Drinks can be enjoyed in the indoor or outdoor bar area overlooking the swimming pool.
