An unforgettable experience on the rim of the Fish River Canyon
Nestled against the edge of the Fish River Canyon, Fish River Lodge is an unforgettable destination with breathtaking views of the world’s second-largest canyon. The epic location of the lodge is complemented by interior spaces that are stylishly decorated yet calm. Water usage at the lodge is optimised to be as responsible as possible, while power is generated using solar panels. Guests have the opportunity to explore the area and the canyon below with short hiking trails, fat bikes, canyon drives, and sunset drives. A highlight is the sparkling swimming pool overlooking the canyon – perfect for cooling off on hot days. The landscape around this western side of the canyon is vast - perfect for both solitude and adventure.
Best time to go to Fish River Canyon
The best time to visit the rocky vistas of the Fish River Canyon is between April and September. If you are going hiking, the ideal time to do so is in the winter months, which are rainless and have comfortable, cool temperatures. Take note that the popular Fish River Trail is only open for pre-booked hikers between April and September. Summertime (December to February) is scorching hot with daily temperatures of 38°C - 41°C. The preceding spring months (September to November) have slightly lower temperatures but are still quite hot.
The 20 Chalets are made up of 6 double, 3 family and 11 twin rooms, set ample distance apart to allow for privacy and solitude. Dry-packed stone walls cover the outer chalets and large windows offer light and views over the canyon. Each chalet has an additional outdoor shower that offers guests the opportunity to cool down under the stars on warm nights.
