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.

... hot again. The difference in weather about 45 minutes out of Swakopmond was crazy. It was cold and raining and 45 down the road it was hot hot sunshine. I was happy to be back to the heat as Swakopmond was a bit of a shock (more of a relief for Pete).
There was a tiny pool, probably the smallest pool I've ever seen that wasn't a jacuzzi. Only Jana swam in it and in two strokes she had swam the length of it.
That afternoon we went out on a desert tour ...
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 ...
