Fish River Lodge
Quite literally on the edge of the world, the Fish River Lodge is perched on the edge of the Fish River Canyon in southern Namibia, west of Keetmanshoop and far, far away from anything you've ever seen before.
The buildings are contemporary in design using glass, wood and stone in order to blend in to the surroundings, making sure that the canyon stays the centre of attention. Each chalet has uninterrupted views over the landscape through floor to ceiling windows, so that you can enjoy the view right from your bed.
En-suite bathrooms facilities include an outdoor shower and for warm evenings you can take in the night sky as it should be, free of light and air pollution, blanketed with stars - from an outdoor lounger or on cooler nights, from inside through the windows in the roof.
This is the place you come to if you want to relax and reconnect with nature. There isn't much to do other than marvel at the view or for those who are a bit more energetic, walks into the canyon will open your eyes to the unique plant and animal life which have adapted to these harsh conditions. Scenic drives are offered by the lodge in the late afternoon so that you can watch the sunset over the canyon, marvelling at the colours which this time of day brings.
20 chalets; en suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers; restaurant; outdoor and indoor dining areas; swimming pool; bar; airstrip and transfers
Nature drives into Fish River Canyon; fat biking; full-day and half-day hikes; fully catered hikes from 2 days to a 5-day hike with the first and last night spent at the lodge and 3 nights in the canyon; scenic drives in the late afternoon to catch the sunset over the canyon
All hiking done between April - September.
