Fish River Lodge is situated on the western rim of the Fish River Canyon and should not be confused with the famous Hobas view point on the eastern rim.
Recommended route, from Keetmanshoop or Lüderitz on the B4: Turn onto the D463, a gravel road to Fish River Lodge. Total duration is ± 2 hours with signage along the way.
From Rosh Pinah in the south: Turn onto the D463 from the C13. Look out for the Canyon Nature Park and Fish River Lodge signs to the right.
The access road to the lodge just off the D463 is a stretch of 20 km. Vehicles with high clearance or 4x4s are suited best, but sedan vehicles will make it if driven slowly. After 5 km on this track you will pass two farmhouses. Follow the small signs to the lodge for another 14 km.
- Do not take the C12 to the Fish River Canyon as you will end up on the eastern side of the canyon and there are no roads across to Fish River Lodge.
- Plan plenty of time for your journey so that you can enjoy the drive and arrive in daylight or in time to catch the sunset over the canyon.
- Lodge co-ordinates: S 27 31.640 E 17 32.213 | Airstrip co-ordinates: S 27 30.237 E 17 31.657
