Canyon Lodge

Chalet

Stone pathways lead to the 30 chalets at Canon Lodge. These are nestled individually amongst boulders and natural rock, and a few have been crafted to make the rocks an internal feature. Each chalet has its own small sitting area at the front, with a stone table and camping chairs.

Inside, the chalets are quite rustic, but furnished with all of the necessities. Each has twin beds made out of wood, with mosquito nets and a rotating electric fan above, and stone pedestals on either side.

When we last visited, in June 2011, the chalet interiors were kept pleasantly cool by their stone walls and floors, and thatched roofs. However, this also make them quite dark inside – and cold during Namibia's coolest months. To offset this, hot-water bottles are placed in the beds during the winter.

Each chalet has an electric fan and the dark stone construction of the walls helps keep the chalets cool in summer.

Each of the chalets at Canon Lodge has an en-suite bathroom with a hot-and-cold shower, flush toilet and handbasin. They also have a mirror and shelves, with toiletries provided.

There is an electric point in each bathroom; foreign adaptors may be borrowed from the reception area.
