This is a isolated location with a view that no other accommodation offers! It has modern African architecture and interiors in a prime location. The food was equal to the setting. The wind might be a problem for some but for us it was part of the ambience.

The view is epic...no doubt. The staff and food is also wonderful. They do allow small birds in the restaurant however and they can be seen picking at the breakfast bar and excreting in the dinning area which is not pleasant or hygienic. The rooms look great, but thats about it. All style, and little substance. The wind is fierce...

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the staff and food at Fish River Lodge and we are pleased that you enjoyed the location. We note your comments on birds sharing the breakfast buffet table. This is a challenge all Lodges in wild and remote places face; how to find a way of sharing our environment with the very creatures...

This is a very unique lodge right at the edge of the canyon. It is incredible waking up with this view. The staff is absolutely friendly and professional, the rooms are clean and are cleaned every day. It's definitely worth a trip!

This is a place you have to stay more than one night ! The landscape is just beautiful, sleeping under the stars... is a fantastic experience, unique ! Staying there is beetwen earth and sky, listening the wind, birds or the silence is just perfect. Time hasn't right here, just breathe and live this time

The worst road to travel- definitely not for any vehicle but a vehicle with very high clearance. It took us 1 hour to do the 20 km drive. At the end,the scenery of this lodge,was worthwhile the bad road. The lodge is build right on the edge of the canyon and one is drawn to this magnificent scenery all the...

We stayed here during a fly-in safari through namibia and botswana in january 2016 - sadly just for one night. the lodge is very straight-forward, the rooms are somewhat simple (and maybe due to the wind a bit noisy at night) - but the total experience is absolutely stunning. be aware that you have to book early for certain periods....

The breathtaking view as you step out onto the deck of this Lodge is simply that - breathtaking! This Lodge is definitely worth visiting, for the View primarily, the staff are friendly and efficient, the food is good and the rooms are comfortable. The wind howls but the rooms are sturdy and strong!

We used Fish river Lodge as our base to hike the Fish River Canyon. We were a group of 27 hikers and needed space to sort ourselves out. Lodge was helpful in every aspect. Friendly staff. Great rooms. Views very good in order to get us excited with what hike is ahead of us. Will be back.

The locatio is truly the star here. The lodge itself is ok, although the cabins themselves are poorly designed to handle the extremes of the environment. Other than the entry door there are no windows that can be opened to cool the space. Granted there are womdows near the roof, but there's no way to reach them. Also the lighting...

The location of Fish River is simply stunning - right on the edge of the canyon, with magnificent views for miles and miles from every room and the restaurant terrace and pool. The rooms are nicely designed, comfortable and fairly modern as they are only a couple of years old, as is the restaurant/bar area. Breakfast and dinner were delicious...
