We stayed at the River Lodge on March 2017 on route from South Africa to the Kalahari.The lodge is surrounded by rock formations which is breathtaking especially for the sunsets. I mostly enjoyed the quietness of it all. Our room was located closest to the pool which was so convenient for our afternoon swim. They also have an honesty bar...

A perfect place to stay if you are exploring Fish River Canyon and the desert around. About 30 large cabins, each with two large apartments. The bathroom is separated from the rest of the room/appartment. The thatched roof is visible from inside and gives an open and spacious feeling. Perfect for a rest before or after a hot day in...

A superb little place to relax situated less than 30km from the West Cape - Namibia main road. Excellent and friendly service, food was really well prepared and presented. The mountain retreats are really something else and well worth the extra cost. A beautiful tranquil setting for a relaxing break.

When we arrived at Canton Village we were initially very disappointed because the first look of the few chalets that are visible, did not leave a good impression and my wife, even though tired from travelling long distances on dirt roads, suggested we continue and book somewhere else. However, before making a booking, I always check the ratings on tripadvisor...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and the nice words about our property. Luckily you decided to trust in our great reviews and enjoyed your stay. The Canyon Village property is characteristically designed to suit the stones and sand. Maybe the next time you could try our more green Canyon Lodge. We hope that we can welcome you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Canon Village lies at the foot of a sweeping rock face in Gondwana Canon Park. Well-appointed cottages in the Cape Dutch style afford views of the vast canyon scenery. The thatched main building is built right into the massive granite boulders and houses a restaurant and cosy bar. With the famous Fish River Canyon just 20 km away the village is a perfect starting point for exploring the canyon. Dozens of murals depict the history and culture of the Bondelswart Nama, the earlier inhabitants of this area. Relish the peace and quiet and enjoy the views at the 'pool with a view'. ... more   less
