Beautiful village close to the fish river canyon. Rock bar, sun downers in the wild. Stunning food and friendly personnel. Lovely cottages. Best wine on our whole trip to Nam. Relaxing atmosphere, recharge and unwind.

We loved the hotel. Beautiful setting. A lovely walk out to the bar among the rocks. The rooms were nice. Staff were friendly. Not a lot of choice at the buffet in the evening but it was adequate for us.

I hope this post will encourage someone to stay at the Canyon Village. As a first time traveller, I was unsure where to book and stay. I read reviews in order to assist with the choice.

We decided to stay over at Canyon Village on our way to the northern parts of Namibia. A wonderful setting and wish we had more time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Staff very friendly and very helpful. Had time to do the short walking trail before dinner (6km). Highly recommended as the views are beautiful and it is... More

Our first stop in Namibia and a very good one. Nice welcoming staff and nice chalet. We felt very at ease and the location of the place is strategic to visit the canyon. The buffet dinner was very generous and you can bring your own wine. If you are a South African or a ZA resident you can have a... More

This place is really cool. We had an awesome stay in great accommodation and the views from our bungalow were spectacular. The honesty bar for sunset was the highlight and we were able to take great sunset pics!

Service was friendly. Food excellent and the rooms clean. View stunning. Stayed 1 night at the Village and 1 night at the lodge. Did have lunch at Roadhouse - excellent burgers and food came quickly. In all everything was really nice.

The Staff was very friendly, helpful and always smiled. The room had a nice view. We really enjoyed the walking trail, it is very beautiful! My only advice would be to advertise/upsell the trail a bit more.

Beautifully located, beautifully designed and build. Staff was friendly, rooms were really nice, great pool. Dinner wasn't the best we had but also far from the worst.
