Accomodations for Desert Canyons Safari

This is a wilderness ride, so you will be staying in a mixture of lodges and camping.

You will be staying in a lodge for 2 nights and camp for 8 nights.
Consider yourself ‘unplugged’ while on safari – cell-phone reception is minimal at best and internet not at all except in cities and larger towns.

Water is a very precious commodity in a desert, so while it is possible to rinse a few smalls things on safari, only lodges and hotels have laundry service.

Camping at Canõn Roadhouse
This campsite is situated 14 km from the Fish River Canyon. It has a campground, a rather famously decorated restaurant with ‘old wheelers’ bar, a swimming pool and a fuel station as well as a Canyon Information Centre.

Lodge near Fish River Canyon
The lodge is located at the foot of picturesque dolerite hills. The building, shaped like a horseshoe, houses 8 en-suite rooms (16 beds) plus a communal kitchen and dining room. All rooms have en suite bathrooms, shower, toilet and hand basin, twin beds and electric fan. Each room is decorated with bits, bridles, saddles and other horse riding items. The covered grill area is a pleasant meeting place at the end of an eventful day. WIFI is available (100MB free). 

Camping in Ai Ais 
Ai Ais lies at the southern end of the Fish River conservation area. It means “burning water” in one of the local languages, and refers to the sulphurous hot springs found in this area. It offers an excellent place to relax around the thermal baths & heated swimming pool. The Camping Site at Ai Ais is situated right alongside the riverbed at the end of the Fish River Canyon. With clean ablutions and areas for washing dishes the camping site at Ai Ais is a pleasant if warm place to camp in Fish River Canyon. Campers can make full use of all the resort facilities.

Camping - general
While we do provide tents if needed, generally guests sleep out under the stars on cozy cots with bedding. The cots have bedrolls consisting of an insulating mattress, duck-down double duvet, and pillow - can zip up and has a waterproof cover. Hot bucket showers and chemical loos travel along with us - we endeavor to provide a shower every night but if water is scarce, one night might be shower-less.

Room Occupancy
Single supplement is waived if you are willing to share.

All meals are included from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on the last day.

Breakfast is typically porridge or cereal, coffee or tea and a hot dish.
On days we are able to meet up with the supply trucks a light lunch is served, where this is not possible, sandwiches are enjoyed under a shady tree.
Dinner is a delight of typically Namibian fare; wild Game, free-range beef or Karoo mutton served as braai (grilled over an open fire) or potjie (pot casserole) with vegetables and a surprise dessert also made on the open fire.

Tea, coffee, and juice are always available in camp with chilled drinks, beer, wine, etc. available in the evenings. All drinks are included in the cost whilst on the ride. Only drinks at the first night lodges, guest farms, restaurants, and petrol stations while en-route are not included in the package rate.

Dietary Restrictions
We can easily cater to vegetarians. We cannot fully cater to vegans, so please supply your own snacks.

This trip includes some wine with dinner and can accommodate special dietary requests.
