Over Cañon Lodge
De Cañon Lodge heeft 25 chalets gebouwd van natuursteen die helemaal opgaan in de omgeving van granieten rotsblokken in het Gondwana Cañon Park. Het hoofdgebouw is een gerenoveerde oude boerderij uit 1904 met een receptie en restaurantgedeelte. De kamers zijn ruim opgezet en hebben een en-suite badkamer, rieten daken, airco en zijn middels een pad van natuursteen met het hoofdgebouw verbonden. U kunt een boek lezen op het terras in de schaduw van de bomen of ontspannen bij het schitterend gelegen zwembad met uitzicht over de Fish River Canyon. De lodge heeft georganiseerde tours naar de Fish River Canyon, wandelingen met zonsopkomst en zonsondergang en paardrijtochten.

Gelegen in het grote privé-park Gondwana Cañon Park, op korte afstand van de Fish River Canyon.
De kleine nederzetting Aus in de gelijknamige bergen ligt tussen Keetmanshoop en Lüderitz. In dit gebied valt tijdens de winter soms sneeuw. In de regentijd verandert deze droge omgeving in een grote bloemenzee. In het dorpje is niet veel meer te vinden dan een hotel, station, winkel en een garage.
The cabins are widely spread over the property and are very comfortable. Parking is not close to the cabins which make it often uncomfortable to have to pick something out of the car. The swimming pool is quite a walk away from the lodging, but has exceptional views. Food was very good (lunch) and a buffet at night. A Gondwana representative was trying to educate the staff to offer better food, and, even though it is a difficult job, the food was very good when we were there. The excursion to the Fish Canyon was very interesting and we saw more than if we had done it with our car. Definitely a good advice to spend the money on this. They were also flexible and postponed the excursion by one hour as we were the first ones to reserve and had asked to be able to sleep another hour.
"Private chalets nestled in remarkable surroundings"
Fish River canyon is a magic place, well worth a visit (and pretty much undiscovered given how few people we saw). Canon Lodge was a good base to explore it from -- our chalet was nestled among amazing huge boulders, and quite private with a lovely sunset view. The pool setting was fabulous too (although we were there mid winter), and there were some nice walks and climbs in and around the remarkable surrounding hills. Service was friendly and helpful and the food was good - even if the restaurant was a touch large to have much charm.
Extremely expensive for what you get. Typical of Namibia overpriced for average accommodation and no choices so you have no choice. Room was comfortable although no mini bar so could not have a sundowner and enjoy the view. Food was a mediocre buffet which was very expensive. Stunning surroundings though and very peaceful.
"Quirky and secluded"
This is a very beautiful place in a very beautiful location. Plusses Good Food, Quirky houses (build in between the rocks, with rocks in the house (kids loved to climb the rock in the middle of the room), friendly staff (mended tyre when I had a flat). Amazing location and scenery. Minusses Only minus is that the house was far from practical; rocks overhanging the head-end of the bed-bathroom ceiling so low that showering was not possible (only bath)
"Nice lodge though dinner not included "
The lodge was nice and the rock theme was cute, though not the nicest lodge we stayed in during our trip in Namibia. While I appreciate that the cabins were built into the "natural habitat", the rock in Cabin 13 protruded significantly into the room, reducing the living space by 15%. Additionally, the lodge is probably more fitting for families and couples, though our room had two separate twin beds pushed together. One thing to note: it is a little ridiculous that dinner is not included in the lodging's pricing as dinner is a set price (300 NAD), and there is nothing else around. The other nice lodges we stayed at included dinner, particularly when there are no other viable restaurant options in the vicinity. There was a pool that we didn't take advantage (it was too cold), as well as mini golf on the premises.
