Gondwana Canyon Lodge

Canyon Lodge is a gem in the rugged environment a fusion of farmhouse flavor and natural splendor. Walkways lead to 30 natural stone chalets nestled amongst granite boulders. Celebrate dawn amongst the quiver trees and the awe-inspiring adventure of life from the rim of the Fish River Canyon. A restored farm house, built in 1908, serves as the lodge restaurant. The nearby Quiver trees and impressive rock formations cater for the hiking enthusiasts.

Gondwana Canyon Experience

The Fish River begins its journey in the Naukluft Mountains, seeking its lover, the Gariep or Orange River in the south. It flows steadily at first, dropping over two waterfalls before reaching the Löwen River and plunging into the canyon on its serpentine route to the end of the gorge at Ai-Ais.

Gondwana Canyon Park

The idea of founding the Gondwana Canyon Park was born in 1996 when a small group of dedicated Namibians decided to try to preserve a small area bordering the eastern side of the Fish River Canyon National Park in Namibia's south. For decades, this land has been used for sheep farming which in the end proved unsustainable in this semi-desert area that receives less than 100 mm rainfall annually. What started out as a small idealistic concept has grown today into a full-scale park of approximately 100.000 ha. Even in this short period of time a substantial recovery of the flora and fauna has taken place.

A lot of effort has been put in removing all the existing fences and establishing waterholes for the game. The regular game counts prove that we already have a healthy, albeit small population of kudu, Oryx, springbok, ostrich, mountain zebra and a variety of smaller antelopes. Even leopards are sighted regularly again.

A new ranger team has been formed and the plans for the direct future include purchasing more game to enlarge the numbers as well as to reintroduce species that are endemic to the area but currently not present. A substantial amount of the funding of the Gondwana Canyon Park comes from the bed levy of 5% that is being transferred from the proceeds of both the Canyon Lodge and the Canyon Roadhouse into the Gondwana Canyon Park Fund.
