Making the most of the beautiful vistas, the Fish River Lodge has been built in harmony with its stark, striking surroundings. Completed in 2009, all the buildings that make up the lodge pay tribute to the amazing landscape, offering spectacular views of the Fish River Canyon from sunrise to sunset. The architecture and interiors of Fish River Lodge have taken their queue from the rugged landscape that surround it. Contemporary, and at times monastic, the lodge was designed to reflect the unique beauty of its location.

Perfect location a few meters from the rim. Friendly staff, large and very well equipped bungalows. Beautiful view over Fish River Canyon. Flexible kitchen and nice breakfast buffet. Very strong winds after sunset.

This is our second time visiting the lodge and we can not get enough of the tranquility the place has to offer. We were welcomed by Jacobus and Perry was our guide for the hike. I would recommend Perry as your guide (shame when will he rest). Perry is very knowledgeable about

The lodge as whole amazed me in so many ways! ROOM we stayed at room 16, gorgeous view of the canyon! The room is super well decorated, i love the windows on the ceiling, nice to catch that breeze at night time. The bed is super comfortable, I slept like a baby. COMMUM AREAS

Fish River Lodge is located at a breathtaking location just on the edge of a cliff overlooking a vast canyon. Truly exceptional and beautiful location and very helpful and friendly service at the lodge itself. The canyon location results in significant winds which can be noisy

Excellent location with fantastic view from any of the rooms. Style of the rooms is very modern and might not always suit the surrounding nature but it's never easy to adapt to such a wild environment. There is a hike along the cliff that we enjoyed a lot but we were not allowed

Hi, You do not need to book in advance to take a trip down into the canyon. You can book your trip when you check-in.

We did this trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a long drive, but that is mostly because the road is very rough and takes time to negotiate it safely. I wouldn’t worry too much about winding and turning as you just go too slow to become sick and it is an open car, so you’ll have plenty of fresh air. There is plenty of time for stopping and walking around and you can swim in the river if you want.

Hi,due to the heat in March, we cannot offer guests any hiking tours. However, you can still participate in a cycling tour of about 2hr30min either in the morning or afternoon. Or take a half day Canyon drive - down into the canyon and enjoy a swim in the rock pools. Other then that we also offer stunning Sundowner Drives.

Hi, It is not necessary for you to go to the other side of the canyon, as we are the only lodge on the rim of the Canyon and it is worth spending 2 nights and do the Canyon excursion with us as we have exclusive access to the river on our side. Plus the distance to go on the other side is about another 5 hours drive and you will not experience the same view.
