Anticipation builds up as you turn off the main gravel road toward Canyon Lodge. The soft colours of apricot sand merging with the pale green of euphorbias is a prelude to the loveliness of the lodge surrounds. As you turn a final bend, the lodge comes into view. Nestled between rounded granite boulders, Canyon Lodge's quaint century-old farmhouse reception, verdant garden and cool pond invite and welcome you into the enchanted enclave.
The neighing of horses from the paddocks follows you down a lane to the stone chalets, through a green tapestry of grass kept well-watered by the recycling plant and dotted with camelthorn trees. The path continues to a swimming pool and the wild and beautiful expanse of the Gondwana Canyon Park.
Take a guided drive to the Fish River Canyon to be inspired by new perspectives, join a 3-4 day Canyon Trail for an experience of a lifetime, follow the 4x4 Wildebeest Drive to view the plains animals, watch sunrise amidst the quiver trees, hike in the rocky hills or savour the sunset either from the adjacent koppie or on the sunset drive. Away from the world, there is a gentle rhythm of peace to find here, reaffirming the goodness of life. For those just wanting a break from the road, lounge at the pool, take a snooze in the coolness of your thatch-and-stone chalet or dip into a book on the terrace. The awe-inspiring canyon wakens our senses to the raw and powerful beauty of Nature.
A high standard of hospitality excellence is provided at Canyon Lodge in a relaxed and understated way. Offering character and charm, without the glitz, the lodge's down-to-earth attractiveness and homeliness is perfect for the rugged Fish River Canyon surrounds. Twenty kilometres from the chasms carved by millions-of-years of Earth history, earth cataclysms, whispers of wind, raging torrents of water and sparkling streamlets, this Fish River Canyon lodge is a hideaway not to be missed.

The Under-Canvas Sleep-out is a truly Namibian adventure that lets you experience the raw nature of the Gondwana Canyon
Park, the second largest private protected area in Namibia. The remoteness of the Gondwana Canyon Park and therefore the
absence of light pollution guarantees one of the darkest night skies in the world, making it ideal for stargazing. The 116 000
hectare of privately managed park supports a variety of indigenous wildlife and fascination flora like Quiver Tree and Hoodia.
The experience you get from sitting around the fire at night in this vast landscape and the sounds of nature that travel through
the crisp night air is unbeatable.

Tucked behind Canyon Roadhouse, Canyon Road Campsite offers shady camping on the bank of a dry riverbed, against a backdrop of rocky hills. Secreted away from the road, the campsite gives you the impression of being alone in nature with the eagles, thorn trees and the ancient beat of the land. Listen, as you sit beside your campfire below the glittering quilt of the southern night sky. In the silence, you may be able to hear the call of the canyon, 14 kilometres away.
One of the few Fish River Canyon camping destinations, Canyon Road Campsite offers the luxuries of civilisation whilst out in the wilderness. What more can you ask for? Nature supplies the rest. Enjoy the simple pleasures of life on the doorstep of the second largest canyon in the world.
