Fish River Lodge
Located on the rim of the Fish River Canyon, one of Namibia’s top tourist destinations, Fish River Lodge offers forty guests breath-taking views directly over the canyon from sunrise to sunset. The landscape around the western side of the canyon is vast, empty and ancient. Perfect for both solitude and adventure. Explore the canyon and surrounds by foot, safari vehicle or mountain bike and experience the drama of this 500 million year old geological wonder.
Fish River Lodge is the only lodge situated directly on the edge of Namibia’s Fish River Canyon. From sunrise to sunset, visitors are treated to breathtaking views of this geographical wonder.
To experience the beauty and serenity first hand, lace up your hiking boots, grab your binoculars and join us on a private journey into the canyon.
Staying with us
Twenty chalets are perched on the brink of the canyon, far enough from each other to ensure guests’ privacy in this peaceful landscape. Interiors are kept cool by dry-packed stone walls and large windows that perfectly frame the scenery.
The six double and fourteen twin rooms each have a large walk-in pebble stone shower, as well as a secluded outside shower. Private decks are perfect for enjoying the view or practicing yoga and meditation. The all-round rooftop windows offer a starry view of the night sky while you drift off to sleep. Double rooms can be converted into family rooms offering extra room for two children.
With its spacious deck the rim-flow pool is ideal for relaxing and outdoor dining. During winter or cooler evenings, crackling fires warm the interiors. Lunch is served on the deck while breakfast and candlelight dinners are served in the dining area.
The 45,000-hectare Canyon Nature Park is a natural sanctuary for Karoo succulent flora and endemic wildlife. Hiking and cycling trails meander down into the heart of the canyon where permanent water holes and rock pools attract a wide variety of endemic wildlife.
Enjoy a massage in the privacy of your room to soothe tired muscles after hiking and exploring the canyon.
The best way to experience the enormity and beauty of the canyon, is by hiking through it during the cooler months of the year.
From April to September, hiking enthusiasts can enjoy the variety of hiking options accompanied by experienced guides. Delicious meals and refreshing drinks await hikers at the prepared camps every evening.
Cycling is a great way to explore the landscape at a faster pace. Fat bikes are well adapted to the rugged environment.
A leisurely way to explore the canyon is by car. Scenic drives in the morning or evening offer a glimpse of the natural cycles of this harsh terrain, while full-day drives afford a better understanding of the exceptional area and its inhabitants.
Experienced guides will reveal the geological features as you journey into the depths of the canyon. Enjoy a prepared lunch and a dip in one of the rock pools to cool off. A truly unforgettable experience, set against a spectacular backdrop.
