Where I stayed
Fish River Canyon Lodge
Passed rugged mountains on either side that just rise out of the plain.
Arriving at Canyon Lodge the accommodation was a cross between hobit land and bedrock.
Very very cold at night and you could hear the springbocks walking on the stone pathways.
We again had sundowners on our verandah with Lorraine and second night up onthe boulders.
We had to get up for sunrise at 5.30am which was cool to say the least. Went out in jeeps again with rugs. Hot coffee and tea were served in the bush. We then had a three km walk back to the lodge.
After breakfast we headed for the canyon which is the second biggest in the world after the Grand Canyon. It was spectacular with the fish river having carved out huge areas.
