Luxurious and comfortable Fish River Lodge is the only lodge located directly on the edge of Namibia's Fish River Canyon.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of twenty elegant chalets. There is a choice between a double room with one large bed or the twin rooms with two beds. Every chalet features open and airy rooms that include a fan and a separate dressing area. The en suite bathrooms come with double vanities, both indoor and outdoor showers, and flush toilets. A private veranda also includes an outdoor bed so guests can sleep under a blanket of stars or just admire the views.
The lodge enjoys prime views of Fish River Canyon in the south of Namibia. Fish River is the largest canyon in Africa. The massive ravine is in total about 100 miles long, up to sixteen miles wide, and in places almost 1,804 feet deep. The 403-mile long Fish River is the longest interior river in the nation. The river flows intermittently with flooding usually occurring in late summer while the rest of the year it becomes a chain of long narrow pools. Unlike the Grand Canyon, Fish River Canyon was not carved out by the river but a result of a fracture in the earth’s crust that collapsed the valley bottom forming a broad valley running north-south about 500 million years ago. Animals are scarce in this harsh environment though there are Hartmann’s zebras, kudu, and klipspringer and sometimes leopard.
