If you are looking for peace and quite then this is the place for you. Fish River Lodge is situated some 2½ hrs away from any form of town or village on the very edge (literally) of the world's second largest canyon. To get to the lodge you must travel for 85km along a dirt road and then turn off onto a bumpy track for a further 14km. Needless to say it is best to arrive by 4x4, however, there was a couple who had driven there in a VW Polo, and a group who arrived by helicopter! However you arrive the effort is well worth it as the views are breath-taking. The accomodation consists of en-suite double occupancy units grouped around a central lodge on the edge of Fish River Canyon. As the lodge is so remote board is full and the very friendly staff offer a limited range of activities (based around drives and hikes into the canyon). Breakfast is substantial with a good choice of options, dinner is set and tends to cater for European tastes. Caters for those looking for adventure but with the need for a little luxury. Highly recommended.
