TravelPod Member ReviewsCanyon Lodge Fish River Canyon
Brilliant! What a place. Built among the rocks of the canyon its hard to tell there is anything there. The staff were excellent, food great and the accommodation was superb. Highly recommended! Its a long way to the lodge but well worth the trip.

Sadly we had to leave the incredible soft comfy beds and after breakfast at Amanpuri we headed off along the coastal road. The tarmac road didn't last for long and soon we were back onto the 'free African massage' dirt roads. We passed some small lakes with hundreds of flamingos in them. We stopped to meet another G truck going the other way and Elisha changed their temperature gauge for them (I bet a bus driver can't do that!). ...
Fish Canyon is the largest natural canyon in Africa and second largest in the world after the Grand Canyon. Last March we visited the Grand Canyon and two years we took a train trip through the Copper Canyon in Mexico. We were excited to see what the Fish Canyon would look like.
We drove for three hours through the Kalahari Desert from the Quiver Tree campsite in Keetmanshoop to the canyon. Along the way, we were on the lookout for ...
