Cañon Lodge

Canon Lodge is situated on the 520 square kilometer, privately owned Gondwana Canyon Park.  It is only 20kms from the main viewpoint of Fish River Canyon and is built from natural materials, including local rock and thatch roofs.  The lodge is an ideal starting point for visits to the Fish River Canyon.  The Canon Lodge's main area lies in the shelter of a granite hilltop, and the lodge itself has been built amongst enormous boulders, designed to blend in with the natural environment. The reception, an indoor restaurant and the bar area can be found here. There is a safe in reception for the safekeeping of valuables if necessary. As the building has been constructed by using mostly local stone, the interior is cool, but lacks natural sunlight.  An old farmhouse, originally built in 1908 by three Bavarian brothers, has been restored to serve as the Canon Lodge Restaurant.  It has a magnificent view of the canyon landscape, which makes dining in the restaurant a truly unforgettable experience.  Spaced evenly amongst the tall weather-beaten granite boulders are 25 thatched, wooden bungalows.  All units are equipped with comfortable beds, en-suite bathrooms, a fan and mosquito nets.  Be sure to enjoy the various activities to participate in including unguided morning hikes, Canyon and scenic drives, horse-riding and a guided sunset walk. Take in the superb scenery in this haunting, arid landscape.
