The rooms are beautifully done but the main facility is dark and airless. Wifi is offered but is so slow that you just cannot use it. For the prices charged the meals are seriously not upto standard. Very expensive stay. During our 1 night stay they had a group for Germany and the Namibian tour guide was awful, load and... More

We loved our 2 night stay here. The main building is beautiful with a thatched roof and rampant Bouganvilla. The room was rustic but lovely and the food excellent. The swimming pool area had a lovely view and had plenty of shelter from the sun, which is Important at 42c! What really made it special was Stefie, the manager, who... More

We should have been at Canon Village but they've upgraded us to Canon Lodge due to a Christmas party for the staff. We've visited Canon Lodge two years ago and the service was excellent. However we were disappointed this time as the service from the staff was really poor. Don't know if there's been a change in management??

The 24, Cap-Dutch style build, houses of Canyon Village, are well maintained and located 20 km away from the wonderful Fish River Canyon (not to be missed). Each house has two units with a room, two single (hard) beds, a bathroom (shower, toilet and water basin) and s small terrace with two chairs. Functional, but not special. There is a... More

We were a group of eight friends that stayed at Canyon Village for two nights - we had an amazing stay and we were blown away by the setting of the establishment. The staff were all so friendly and our rooms were so comfortable. We enjoyed the bar, breakfast and swimming pool facilities. We did the hike that starts behind... More

Stayed over on our first night in Namibia on route to Windhoek. The road was a little bumpy (especially for a polo), however we were rewarded when we pulled into the village which perfectly blended into the tranquil, arid surrounds. Super friendly and professional staff, quaint thatch cottages, crisp and clean linen, awesome pool area in the midst of the... More

stayed for 2 nights on the way through Namibia as a base for visiting Fish River Canyon, great access to the canyon and the Roadhouse for their super burgers. Service and food superb, game drive a must for all.

back in times.... luggage is being delivered with a horse cart.... the interior if the restaurant showcases some very antique ox carts probably around 100 over years old. The lodge is small, the chalets built in a circle surrounded by red rocks. The best sundowner spot is some few meters away and a short climb up a rock - superb... More
