After a long, interesting and adventurous drive, we had no idea what to expect when finally reaching the Fish River Lodge. Nothing prepared us for the beautiful scenery, the breathtaking views and the amazing lodges. All we could say was "wow". This place is out of this world. We enjoyed the views, took long walks (amazing to see even a dry canyon having so much wildlife), participated in a sundowner and enjoyed the various meals. We had the best time, in part because of the spectacular surroundings, but also because of the helpfull and kind staff. A hidden gem.
The drive here is very interesting, and we had a sand storm on the way, but it really is worth it for the spectacular views. The rooms seemed to be perched on the edge of the canyon so you wake up to an amazing view. The rooms are quite simple with an indoor or outdoor shower, again with the amazing view of the canyon. The staff seemed friendly and certainly enjoyed the singing and dancing after dinner one night of our stay. We didn't go down into the canyon at all, but the walks around the rim were very scenic. We had a lovely, relaxing time here even with the cold,windy weather they were having and it was made even more special by the appearance of a lone giraffe on our departure.

This lodge has one of the most amazing settings in the world. The individual units are well appointed and clean, with the most awesome views. Service could be jacked a touch with more silence from the staff. This has to be one of the most special spots throughout the world. We will be back. Very good value for money.
