Canyon village

The Canyon Village sits picturesquely at the foot of a sweeping rock face in Gondwana Canyon Park. It is on the same property and only 2kms away from Canyon Lodge.

There is a thatched restaurant, coffee shop and a rustic bar, all set between massive granite boulders. Namibian artists have decorated the walls of the restaurant, and the rural atmosphere is continued in the chalets, depicting the daily life of the original inhabitants of the area, the Bondelswart Nama. Alternatively, guests are welcome to enjoy a break at the pool. It has magnificent views of the endless plains of Gondwana Canyon Park.

On arrival, guests will have their luggage transported to their accommodation by a traditional donkey cart.

42 Cape Dutch style chalets are equipped with en-suite bathrooms, twin beds with mosquito nets and bedside lights, air-conditioning, mesh-screened windows and a wooden wardrobe.

Light lunches can be ordered from their 'a la carte' menu and in the evening several meat dishes, fresh vegetables and a choice of salads are available. 

Take in the superb scenery in this haunting, arid landscape on an unguided morning hike, Canyon and scenic drive or a guided sunset walk.

Canyon Village is an ideal base and offers easy access to explore the wonders of Namibia's Fish River Canyon.
