Experience & Activities:
Just 20 kilometres from the awe-inspiring chasms of the Fish River Canyon, the Canyon Lodge is a haven of tranquility, welcoming guests into its century-old farmhouse reception, surrounded by lush gardens and a cool pond. Character and charm replace the glitz here, with its thatch-and-stone chalets blending seamlessly into the natural surroundings of rounded granite boulders and apricot sand dunes.
Guests can experience the stunning sunrise amidst the quiver trees, take part in guided drives and trails offering unique perspectives of the Fish River Canyon, and enjoy the sight of plains animals on a self-drive journey. For those who prefer to stay closer to the lodge, lounging at the pool, enjoying a book on the terrace, or simply taking a refreshing nap in the cool chalet are highly recommended. A spectrum of activities including hiking, sunset viewing, and exploring the rocky hills allow for an intimate acquaintance with the rugged beauty of the surroundings.
The lodge offers a variety of activities that enable guests to explore the majestic surroundings. These include Sunrise Walk, Morning Hike, Trail from the Village to the Lodge, Morning/Afternoon Canyon Drive, Sundowner Drive in Gondwana Canyon Park, Sundowner Walk and a Night Walk. Each of these experiences offers a unique way to engage with the natural beauty of the Fish River Canyon and the flora and fauna that call it home.
Every element of the Canyon Lodge, from the verdant garden to the enchanting accommodations and the myriad activities, ensures an immersive experience of life on the edge of one of Earth’s greatest natural wonders.
