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.

It was like a vast oasis of grape vines rising out of the desert. Accompanying the vineyards was a settlement of ...

Downside - animal poop hazard in abundance!
On the early morning walk we discovered the secluded swimming pool which we jumped into later that day.
After a leisurely breakfast we headed off to Fish River Canyon and spent the next 6 hours driving along its length (or at least a bit of it). Its around 1800FT deep at its deepest (550M). ...
