Situated directly on the road to the Fish River Canyon, 14 km from the gate to the viewing points, Canon Roadhouse offers 24 immaculate en-suite rooms, a swimming pool and a petrol station. For alfresco fans there are beautiful camping sites which allow for privacy.

In Room Facilities:

All the rooms are spacious, they have twin beds, en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioners and complimentary tea and coffee facilities.

Area Information:

The Nama Karoo - yellow flowers of quiver trees against the blue sky at the second largest canyon on earth. The quiver tree is a typical stem succulent of the Nama Karoo, and on the vast plains of Gondwana Canyon Park several clusters can be found. With an area of 1,120 km and the first tract of land acquired in 1995, this park is the largest and oldest nature reserve of the Gondwana Desert Collection.

Property Facilities:

There is an old farm style swimming pool. The geology, flora, fauna and history of the area are explained on display boards at the Canyon Information Centre.We offer sundowner/ morning drives through the Canon Park or a drive down to the Canyon Fish River viewpoint. There are also great signposted walking trails for hiking enthusiasts.

Attractions:

Canyon Roadhouse in Gondwana Canyon Park is just 20 km away from the Fish River Canyon.Its dimensions are enormous: 160 km long, up to 27 km wide and 500 m deep. The Fish River Canyon is seen as the largest canyon in Africa and second largest canyon on earth - after the Grand Canyon in the US. Just as impressive is the period of time during which it was formed: 350 million years ago a fault with a width of 20 km appeared and the river meandered through it in wide loops. When the ancient continent of Gondwana disintegrated 120 million years ago, the Fish River started to dig deep into the ground and create its system of gorges.

We camped and the campsites were well spaced out, each with a lovely shady tree. The ablutions were great and there was a good indoor washing up area.
The restaurant and pub are not to be missed!

Superb. 5 out of 5

We love this place. As always, the staff were super friendly and efficient; the rooms really really spotless and comfortable; dinner and breakfast delicious. The overall character, ambiance, service and comfort of Canyon Roadhouse is up there with the best. You can’t go wrong staying there.

The accommodation is spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts delicious. We also enjoyed the evening meals we had there. The best part though is the staff, they are all so courteous and caring and go the extra mile to make your stay a very pleasant one. Good value for money... get a Gondwana card.. well worth it

Our check-in was somewhat problematical as we had booked Canon Roadhouse and paid in full upfront, but reception had no record of our booking. However we were quickly allocated a campsite. The next day the manager (Simon) was most efficient, helpful and reassuring and undertook to sort out problem directly with agents. After a bad border crossing experience - the manager, Simon reinstalled my faith in people and in Namibia and ensured we would be returning. The campsite had recently been refurbished and this was a return visit. It really is one of the top camping sites in my opinion, with wonderful staff and facilities. Definitely would recommend same.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the roadhouse. The campsite is absolutely lovely, the ablutions clean and tasteful and the food in the restaurant was also good. The drinks are pretty expensive though!

My husband and I enjoyed a two-night stay at Canon Roadhouse on the 8th and 9th of March 2010.

On arrival we were a little apprehensive about our choice of accommodation, but once we settled in,

the friendly staff, ice cold drinks, good food and lovely swimming pool made us change our minds

very quickly. It was also great exploring the Fish River Canyon, knowing we could retreat after a long day

of sightseeing to "a little oases". Most enjoyable experience!

Suggestions you might want to consider are: shaded parking for vehicles and bar fridges in the rooms.

We shall definitely recommend Canon Roadhouse to other tourists.
