"Canon Roadhouse Review"

2 nights Arrived 23 Aug 2008
"Again we found this a perfectly good place to stay. We went to Fish River Canyon, that was quite breathtaking and remarkably were the only people there once an intrepid group of five had descended into the canyon for a four / five day trek! The staff were again very friendly and we enjoyed a game drive come sundowner drive with once more a guide who was proud of the country and his knowledge. It helped that we were the only people to go on that drive.

Not much in the way of wildlife, as we expected, but we did see our first (of many) oryx and a few other animals. But what incredible scenery.

On our way back from Fish River we went to the Canon Lodge for a drink. That enjoys a truly fantastic location, probably more so than the Roadhouse but no doubt is more expensive." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"A lovely stay in beautiful countryside"

2 nights Arrived 26 Jul 2008
"A beautiful setting in the middle of nowhere, about 30 miles from the Fish River Canyon. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly.

The rooms were plain but pleasant although it was pretty cold in the night. The swimming pool looked lovely, but it was a little too cold and windy to use it! We spent our day gazing at the Fish River Canyon and walking along the top." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
