Canõn Lodge I visisted Canõn Lodge for the first time in 2002 and looked forward to seeing the lodge again. The lodge now has a sister lodge, the Canõn Mountain Lodge a few kilometers away with different views but essentially with the same scenery. The main lodge has not changed, with great service and very friendly smiles and I was... More

Excellent value for money. The service is professional and friendly. The area is stunning. The sundowner trip was something to behold and we saw lots of game and the sunset was out of this world. We have yet to visit a Gondwana Lodge where the food is not excellent.

Awesome development in geological location. Amazing eruptions of rocks in which cottages are hidden. [some a little distant from the dining area] We stayed 2 nights having dinner, bed & breakfast. Varied selection of food by enthusiastic chefs served by helpful & cheerful staff. Excellent buffet breakfast taken al fresco. Dinner is also buffet style when we also ate outside.

We stayed at Canyon Lodge one night in March on our way to Kgalagadi. It happened to be my wife's birthday, so I asked in advance whether it was possible to have a small birthday cake as a surprise. Well, not only that the lodge gladly agreed and offered this service for free, but it was also the biggest, most... More

The Lodge is in a stunning location, an oasis in the Desert. Staff very friendly, food excellent, one can only recommend people to visit the location. The rooms are very special with Nature build into.

Canyon Lodge is, to date, our best lodge experience in Namibia - which explains why we have visited on three occasions. The staff are pleasant and helpful (in contrast to what we have encountered at NWR resorts), the food excellent and the manager, Lando, always on-hand to ensure both the comfort of the guests and that the establishment is run...

Beautiful, excellent service and great facilities. We liked the trip to the desert and we enjoyed the excellent service. Breakfast was very good with a wide range of cerials, coffee, tea etc. and the lunch was just incredibly good. There is nothing that can be improved.

It was the second time within half a year I stayed at Canyon Lodge, once in winter, once in summer and both times it has been a wonderful stay! I think it is the best lodge of all I have experienced in Namibia and I have visited quite a lot! I will surely come back!!!

Nestled amongst the massive granite boulders Canyon Lodge was a great base to explore the Fish River Canyon. The rooms were excellent and the service better than average. Maybe just too many groups but we did not mind. The pool is a walk away and very refreshing. Choose the units are further away from the main building as they are... More

This is the third visit to this Lodge over a period of ten years and the same level of fantastic service was experienced and one waitress stood out and if I remember correctly the name was Ushi or similar?

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The harsh rocky desert region at the southern tip of Namibia has made many a traveller think that God has forgotten this land. Not so, just 20 kilometres from the main viewpoint of the Fish River Canyon, leading off the dusty D324, you’ll find the Canon Lodge, an oasis seemingly in the middle of nowhere. The Canon Lodge is one of two existing accommodation centres in the expanse of the 530 km² Gondwana Canon Park. Tall weather-beaten granite boulders mark the location of the lodge and forms an integral part of the overall design. The 20 thatch stone bungalows are dotted among the kopies and are beautifully designed, with the walls shaped around the hills so that boulders protrude into your room, cool to the touch and smoothly rounded by an eternity of erosion. ... more   less
