Fish River Lodge is COVID compliant.
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.
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.
Fish River Lodge is situated on the western rim of the Fish River Canyon and should not be confused with the famous Hobas view point on the eastern rim.
Recommended route, from Keetmanshoop or Lüderitz on the B4: Turn onto the D463, a gravel road to Fish River Lodge. Total duration is ± 2 hours with signage along the way.
From Rosh Pinah in the south: Turn onto the D463 from the C13. Look out for the Canyon Nature Park and Fish River Lodge signs to the right.
The access road to the lodge just off the D463 is a stretch of 20 km. Vehicles with high clearance or 4x4s are suited best, but sedan vehicles will make it if driven slowly. After 5 km on this track you will pass two farmhouses. Follow the small signs to the lodge for another 14 km.
Do not take the C12 to the Fish River Canyon as you will end up on the eastern side of the canyon and there are no roads across to Fish River Lodge.
Plan plenty of time for your journey so that you can enjoy the drive and arrive in daylight or in time to catch the sunset over the canyon.
