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 delicious and at the same time probably unhealthiest (;-)) cake ever. Truly lovely served by two happy birthday singing ladies. Thank you very much for that! The rest was also great: food, Chalet, pool, just everything!

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 efficiently. Breakfasts and dinners on the terrace were particularly enjoyable (not to mention sundowners) while the swimming pool must be among the best the country has to offer.

Given that I plan many return visits, the following hints are deemed helpful to management and would certainly further add to my enjoyment of Canyon lodge:
1) more sunbeds at the swimming pool while ensuring that there is always an adequate supply of towels at the pool
2) more variety in chardonnay wines eg Canyon Village stock MAN Vintners Chardonnay which is a reasonably priced wooded wine

What a great compliment to receive. We always enjoy it to welcome back returning guests to our establishment. I have forwarded your compliments about the staff to them, especially Lando. Thank you for your suggestions about the swimming pool and the wine. This has been sent on to the operational team. The whole team hope you will visit again very soon. Kindest Regards, Bernd Grahl

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.
