Day 1 & 2 – Fish River Canyon – Fish River Lodge
The immensity of this magnificent landscape is truly breathtaking. The towering rock faces and deep ravines forming the Fish River Canyon were formed by water erosion and the collapse of the valley due to movements in the earth’s crust.
Fish River Lodge is the only lodge situated directly on the Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world. From sunrise to sunset, visitors enjoy breathtaking views of this geological wonder. The twenty chalets are perched on the brink of the canyon, far enough from each other to ensure peaceful exclusivity for all guests.
