Our two night stay was good, with a trip down into the canyon to the river, with plenty of engagement of the 4WD and 45 degree angles. Particularly liked...

Their t-shirts say "the edge of eternity"- the view is startling, and there is a real sense of being in a very special place in the middle of nowhere. As a once in a lifetime experience it's to be recommended. The quality of the accommodation was top rate- and that view....Being there in the summer we were concerned about temperature-...

We arrived in the early hours of the morning and Marco had very kindly waited up for us. The room was superb, very comfortable beds and an unique bathroom. On awakening we were met with the most awe inspiring view. To sit with a morning cup of coffee and take it in was good for the soul. The serving of...

The offroad trip to the lodge from the tarred road is in itself an adventure, do not be put off by negative reviews of the road but do take the usual precautions like having enough water (it's hot there in summer) drive cautiously and allow at least 2.5 hrs to get there from the tarred road. Only issue is not...

This lodge has a amazing location and the other plus is their tour into the Fish River Canyon. This time round the staff was friendly, helpful and smile. There is still some training needed but so much better then 5 years back. The most important thing now is that the company must invest and bring this lodge up to the...

What a difference good management makes! First of all, the lodge is at an amazing position. On the rim of the canyon. Spectacular views! Rooms are very spacious, interesting cement/wood decor. Very effective. Reasonably clean. It does get a bit noisy at night due to high winds. Staff is very jolly and helpful. Food in the evening is very good...
