Fish River Lodge

Fish River Canyon, Namibia


Stay at Fish River Lodge

Situated directly on the edge of Namibia’s awe-inspiring Fish River Canyon, The Fish River Lodge stands as the sole lodge with the privilege of offering breathtaking views over the canyon from sunrise to sunset. Its unique design showcases dry-packed stone walls and large windows, providing guests with a contemplative space to admire the astonishing 300 million years of geological history on display. Spanning across a vast 45,000 hectares, the Canyon Nature Park serves as a natural sanctuary for succulent flora and endemic wildlife. The lodge is surrounded by incredible hiking trails that wind their way down into the heart of the canyon, treating guests to unparalleled scenery.

The area boasts 75 kilometres of river frontage, which features permanent water holes and rock pools that serve as a magnet for a variety of wildlife species, including Hartmans Zebra, Kudu, Oryx, Springbok and an array of smaller wildlife and endemic birdlife. The main Lodge is thoughtfully designed to cater to both indoor and outdoor living, adapting to the diverse weather conditions experienced throughout the year. Guests can enjoy delicious home-cooked food, elevated with stylish touches, served on handcrafted tables made from reclaimed wood. During the winter months, crackling fires provide a cozy atmosphere, while in summer, meals can be relished on the deck. The Lodge is accommodating when it comes to specific dietary requirements, and they are able to prepare meals for children with prior notice. Guests can also unwind with their favourite drinks in the indoor or outdoor bar area, which overlooks the inviting swimming pool.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
