One of the greatest gifts Africa offers is the sense of space. At Great Fish River Lodge, the vastness of this wild continent is truly all around you. Watch majestic kudu meander down to the river from the Lodge’s expansive viewing decks, or observe playful Cape clawless otters swimming in the cool waters below from the comfort of your private balcony. Set along the lush green banks of the river after which it is named, the Lodge is designed to amplify the endless landscape. Everything here takes place on a grander scale, but it is the attention to detail and expansive, unmatched vistas that keep visitors coming back year after year. Guest areas are spacious, with generous, wrap-around viewing decks leading from the dining room, bar and sitting areas.
Nine luxurious suites feature bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, separate w.c, twin basins, personal bars and covered verandas. The décor is African-inspired, with earth-toned fabrics, indigenous timber and early settler antiques and artefacts. Each suite has a private veranda and plunge pool.
Delicious Pan-African cuisine is served on the private decks, in the candlelit dining room, or enjoyed in the boma (outdoor dining area).
Twice daily game drives are offered in the morning and afternoon/evening as well as one hour guided bush walks from the lodge, and fishing.
