“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

Fish River Lodge is the only lodge located on the west rim of the Fish River Canyon - that means directly on the rim, not 20km away like the lodges on the east rim. All bungalows have a veranda directly over the canyon rim with breathtaking views. The quivertrees around the lodge make it even more special.
The lodge is in modern style: straight lines, large windows, only a few but carefully selected decorations. The straight and minimalistic design fits very good into the harsh surroundings.
The briefing on arrival regarding the activities was very good and tried to care for individual wishes. The logde offers a guided full day trek to the canyon ground, a guided full day jeep tour into the canyon, a self guided three hours hike on the rim on a very well grommed path and helicopter flights.
The access over 70 km gravel road and 20 km gravel track is quite slow but feasable for a small 2 wheel drive like our hyundai getz.
The lodge was opened end of 2009. It is newly built near the old Grande View Lodge, but is not at the same place and not the same style.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

The fish river lodge is very modern and has an incredible view. It's situated directly at an edge of the canyon. The rooms are very clean and roomy. The beds are comfortable and the food was good.
