"Fish River Canyon day trip review"

Based at Fish River Lodge on 8 Sep 2022
"We were fortunate to have the most experienced guide who gave us a super day. Others were not so lucky and complaints were made about an incommunicative and inexperienced driver. Quality of tour should not be a lottery. Note that there is a bit of climbing of rocks to get down to the bottom of the canyon for the picnic lunch." Read more about this whole safari

"Exhilarating drive down into the canyon"

Based at Fish River Lodge on 4 Sep 2017
"A great day out, being driven down the 500m descent to the canyon floor. Fantastic views and a wonderful experience. Steep descents down very well-maintained rocky tracks gave an exhilarating experience

We were well looked after by our driver/guide Dessie. As there were only two of us we were in the company of other guests who were part of a german group with its own guide who was a bit tedious and dominated proceedings. We were a little irritated but understand that many non-english speaking travellers have to put up with worse and we still had a great day.

A good picnic and a lovely rock pool swimming opportunity." Read more about this whole safari

"Hair raising drive to Fish River Canyon"

Based at Fish River Lodge on 23 Feb 2017
"The rugged drive to the canyon is fairly hair raising and fun- the driver/guide impressively intrepid! BUT once at the canyon, with the river in full flood, it was very limited... it was simply a look at the water, a snack out of a paper bag, then the same very rocky route back. We were back by 1.30.

I think they could have made much more of the whole thing- with a bit of an effort at a more special lunch- perhaps set up at the hiking camp base where there was some shade.... overall I think they get a C for effort!

Rather disappointing." Read more about this whole safari
