Fish River Canyon | Namibia

Fish River Lodge

The Fish River Lodge is the only lodge situated directly on the edge of Namibia's Fish River Canyon, with breath taking views over the canyon from sunrise to sunset.

The lodge is uniquely designed with dry-packed stone walls and large windows through which to contemplate 300 million years of geological history. The 45 000 hectare Canyon Nature Park is a natural sanctuary for Karoo succulent flora and endemic wildlife.

Incredible hiking trails meander down into the heart of the canyon affording guests spectacular scenery combined with 75 km river frontage made up of permanent water holes and rock pools that attract Hartmans Zebra, Kudu, Oryx, Springbok and many other smaller wildlife species and endemic birdlife.

The main Lodge caters for indoor and outdoor living, given the extremes of weather that can be experienced throughout the year. Good home-cooked food with stylish touches is served on handcrafted tables from reclaimed wood next to crackling fires in winter or outside on the deck in summer. Catering for specific dietary requirements and children meals are possible by prior notice. Drinks can be enjoyed in the indoor or outdoor bar area overlooking the swimming pool.

Time your visit with Namibia's seasons

Namibia's seasons follow a typical Southern Africa pattern, however with the desert landscapes the 'wet season' is rarely wet at all. The cooler winter months do however offer a nice respite from what can be very warm summer months.

Namibia’s climate varies across the country. For the best game viewing in Etosha National Park, we would recommend visiting during the dry season between June and October.

November to February is the best time to see flamingos gather at lagoons in eastern Swakopmund. It’s also a great time to visit the Caprivi strip in the north.

Southern Namibia has a much more stable climate and receives very little rain throughout the year. When a rare downpour does start during summer between January to March, the thin, baked soil turns into a stunning blanket of green.
