Welcome to Canyon Lodge

The Canon Lodge is situated just 2km from its sister lodge, the Canon Village and was the first lodge in the Gondwana Canon Park. The harsh rocky desert region at the southern tip of Namibia has made travellers think that God has forgotten this land.

Not so! Just 20 kilometres from the main viewpoint of the Fish River Canyon National Park, off the dusty D324, you’ll find the Cañon Lodge, an oasis seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Tall weather-beaten granite boulders mark the location of the lodge and form an integral part of the overall design.

Canyon Lodge Accommodation

Spaced evenly amongst these boulders are 30 bungalows, built out of natural rock. All units are thatched and equipped with comfortable beds and en-suite bathrooms. The boulders, cool to the touch and smoothly rounded by an eternity of erosion, protrude into the rooms to make them blend in with the natural surroundings.

The design of the bungalows was conceived with the idea to make you feel one with nature whilst enjoying a comfortable stay. Sometimes true luxury lies in simplicity.

An old farmhouse, originally built in 1908 by three Bavarian brothers, has been restored to serve as the lodge restaurant. It is a charming, rustic lodge which has a similar old farmhouse feel to the Canon Roadhouse.

The lodge has a large verandah outside the front of its main building where you will find a long table and benches. It is reminiscent of old farmhouses and you can literally imagine the family lazing here in the afternoon with a cold glass of something refreshing.

Its main attraction is an awe-inspiring view of the canyon landscape, which needless to say, makes a meal at the restaurant truly an experience not to be missed. The Canon Lodge's main area houses the reception, the indoor restaurant and the bar area. This is built using mostly natural stone, so though the interior is cool, it is also a bit dark.

In addition to these, Canon Lodge has a further 7 standard rooms (4 double rooms and 3 singles). These are built to the side and are a short distance from the main lodge area and are slightly cheaper then the bungalows.

Decorated with farming implements dating back to the previous century and combined with the lively chatter of guests and staff alike, success is evident in the atmosphere that seems to linger amongst our visitors who enjoy our warm hospitality and traditional Namibian food.

Dining: Canon Lodge's breakfast is served buffet-style – you can help yourself to fresh fruit, yoghurt from their own dairy, cold meats, cheese and cereals. There is also an option for a cooked breakfast as well as home-baked breads.

Lunch and dinner is a selection from their a la carte menu, with international-style cuisine available. There are sandwiches and salads for those who want a lighter snack as well as full meals such as chicken schnitzel and chips

When we last visited the Canon Lodge, the meals were simple but delicious. Many of the ingredients consisted of fresh products from their self sufficiency centre.

Lodge facilities

Central facilities: On entering the Canon Lodge's main area, to your left is the reception area which also serves as their curio shop. The shop is stocked with a variety of locally made items.

Canon Lodge has a large indoor restaurant, where guests are seated at individual tables. In the far corner of the restaurant is the self-service
tea and coffee station for guests to help themselves at any time.

Leading from the indoor restaurant, an outdoor restaurant sits on a stone verandah. This is a great place to sit and enjoy views of the surrounding area. The outdoor restaurant is comprised of individual tables set out under shady, tall camelthorn trees.

The bar area is right next to the restaurant, through a open arch way and is fully stocked with local as well as imported liquors.

There is a small entertainment area just off the restaurant, facing out onto the front garden. Here there is a pool table for staff and guests alike.

The swimming pool is set slightly away from the lodge and is built higher up so that you have views of the surrounding bush. There are a number of
comfortable loungers around the pool and plenty of shade under thatch. There is also an honesty bar for those wanting a refreshing beverage.

Yes, all children are welcome. No age restriction, children of of all ages are welcome.
