I loved the chalet and the place looks beautiful. Again a unique place that has to be experienced. The let down here was the food, very average. The place looks good though.

Stolk,boudewijn - 31st May, 2015

Catered to tour buses that really overtook the dining room and sunset walk.

Williams, Stacey - 06th May, 2015

Excellent lodge! We were fortunate to get a very private chalet and enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Von Well, Rieka - 01st May, 2015

Lovely room and wonderful staff - Marco and Silke (managers) were brilliant!

Naidoo, Evasen - 30th Dec, 2014

Coggiola, Nadia - 22nd Oct, 2014

the best lodge visit in Namibia. Amazing!

Christofori, Beatrice - 27th Aug, 2014

What a dramatic spot the girls had a separate cabin with giant boulders making up part of their bedroom and bathroom walls they loved it. Very comfortable and I`m very glad we spent 2 nights there. The food was quite good too.

Loftus, Steve - 03rd Jul, 2014

Die lodge is voorwaar `n oase in die woestyn die grasperke tussen die huisies was `n verrassing en die perde wat daar rond wei was oulik. Die chef hier het vir my man spesiaal brood gebak.

Van Dyk,annalien - 28th Oct, 2013

Lovely location was really pretty enjoyed the people, could do with more choice for vegetarians

Pearse, Fay - 03rd Jun, 2013

Great accommodation, good and very friendly staff, good food.

Huiskes, Inge - 14th Mar, 2013

Very nice and lovely people

Leal, Susana - 14th Feb, 2013

Highly attractive lodge with excellent food, very nice people, highly recommendable

Schmitz, Marc - 02nd Jan, 2013

Excellent venue!

Nistri, Elisa - 02nd Jan, 2013

Beautiful setting and friendly staff. Shame it`s quite big (30 huts)as you then lose the more individual approach - e.g. groups stay overnight there and buffet dinners

Nobels, Ingrid - 27th Nov, 2012

Very nice

Drago, Francesco - 09th Oct, 2012

beautiful lodge and very kind - wonderful view and very particular rooms

Ognibene, Stefania - 20th Aug, 2012

Great location in the middle of deserted rocky scenery but at the same time only half an hour from the Canyon. We met people from the other lodge (Fish River)which is directly situated on the rim of the canyon and heard that they could not sleep because of the whirlwind ascending from the canyon, blowing all night. Nothing like this at Canyon Lodge. We got the most remote hut, and enjoyed an impressive view of the rocky formations and the best quality of silence. Room not huge but fairly sized bathroom. Great private terrace in front. Good cuisine (one main course at lunch time and hot and cold buffet at night), mainly game meat but good variety of vegetables. Staff extremely friendly. Recommend the sundowner drive and the canyon drive. Upon suggestion of staff we also made a 2,5 hour hike by ourselves on a well marked path. Unforgettable scenery. Not very strenuous but requires good hiking shoes.

Chalon, Marie-christine - 14th Aug, 2012

This lodge is really great. Structure and service have been really at high level.

Stelvio, Rosset - 14th Aug, 2012

Lodge and rooms were very nice. Bed and breakfast was o.k. Unfortunately there was no mobile-phone-reception.

Gilchrist, Gesche - 11th Aug, 2012

Super stay in nice lodges in middle of rocks...

Dielen, Paul - 27th Jul, 2012

Excellent facilities. Worth another visit and value for money.

Theron, Henk - 02nd Jul, 2012

Our hostess Steffi was excellent and the kitchen produced excellent fare. However we were shocked by the abrupt and brutal upbraiding of one waitress by the `head chef` for putting out the wrong glasses.

Faure, Tony & Marietta - 12th Jun, 2012

Very nice and good, we appreciated all the lodges of the Gondwana collection where we stayed

Spolidoro, Martine - 30th May, 2012

Great place. I could`t recommend it more.

Matt, Matt - 18th May, 2012

Loved our stay there. Excellent service, friendly staff. Recommended.

Tustin, Richard - 02nd Mar, 2012

We absolutely loved this location. Everyone was incredibly friendly. And the peace and tranquility was just what we needed.

Barber, Rachael - 03rd Feb, 2012

Very beautiful, nice rooms and service

Bauer, Katja - 14th Dec, 2011

Very good overall. Chalets cleverly built to include parts of the boulders. Need more loungers and umbrellas at the pool because mostly too hot in full sun.

Sweet, Jim - 13th Dec, 2011

Perfect setting - although little disapponted about the selected bungalow - there is wide range with perfect views up to poor views - out location was acceptable, but...

Bescher, Klaus - 04th Dec, 2011

Amazing setting, excellent food and service. Riding horses looked too thin.

Carr, Norman - 22nd Oct, 2011

excellent lodge

Casaer, Karoline - 04th Oct, 2011

Fantastic location, good food but limited choice

Zambelli, Giorgio - 29th Sep, 2011

Excellent all round, stunning setting, really friendly staff.

Walder, Dennis - 26th Sep, 2011

Special place were to stay, good morning walk in the bush and evening horse ride at the sundown in the canon montain property

Pipitone, Raffaella - 12th Sep, 2011

Lovely place, great staff. We loved the sundowner just outside our hut.

Kuenzle, Peter - 31st Aug, 2011

seems to be amazing back in time ... almost like being in the far west

Pasquin, Pamela - 27th Aug, 2011

Excellent choice, very relaxing and non intrusive. Staff a joy to be with.

Jeeves, Ron - 01st Jun, 2011

Very interesting lodge. A/C unit from a neighbouring cabin was too close (i.e. noisy)

Hillier, Richard - 02nd Mar, 2011

Weird and wonderful.

Kriel, Fanie - 31st Aug, 2010

Very well looked after. Lovely room, fantastic pool.

Johnson, James - 06th Jun, 2010

All the lodges we stayed in were very good but Canon Lodge was outstanding!

What a beautiful scenery there. I want to go back NOW !!! Great lodge.

Feuerstake, Fred - 12th Sep, 2009

amazing position in the canyon, good food.

Pasquali, Maurizio - 10th Sep, 2009

Uitstaande met alle geriewe. (translation from Afrikaans: Excellent facilities)

Oosthuizen, Japie - 09th Sep, 2009

Very good, we liked our lodge but would have been less happy with some of the others closer to the main building. Ours had an excellent view and few neighbours.

Mitchener, Nick - 09th Sep, 2009

exceptional place and excellent food

Noel Naidoo - 27th Aug, 2009

Good location and setting but the room was extremely cold. In general, most of the accomodation did not provide any sort of heating being more oriented to the warmer high season; something perhaps they need to think about

Mcdougall, Neil - 28th Jul, 2009
