Namibia » Fish River Canyon » Vogelstrausskluft Lodge

Vogelstrausskluft Lodge is situated alongside the upper part of the Fish River Canyon on the edge of an ancient, parched river valley, shielded by a dune of red Kalahari sand.

For the visitor, who approaches the lodge over a small hill, a wide view opens over the grassy bottom of the valley, in the centre of which, surrounded by some trees, one of the few water holes is found where the animals come for water in dawn and dusk. Embedded in this harsh desert surrounding that constantly changes, the Vogelstrausskluft Lodge offers the possibility to experience the wonders of Africa and the desert very closely, without having to abandon certain amenities.

The rooms of the Vogelstrausskluft Lodge are decorated in Namibian style and - like the main lodge itself - fit into the surrounding: Natural materials, earthen colours, unobtrusive patterns. And modern Amenities must not be spared: All rooms are fully air conditioned, equipped with electricity, an en-suite bath room an small balcony, that invites to relay and enjoy the impressing surrounding.

To make you enjoy your stay as much as possible, the Vogelstrausskluft Lodge offers various possibilities to relax. In the lodge area cell phone connectivity is possible. Also in the main building, in a separate area, a small library with books on different topics is housed. The connected reading room is equipped with comfortable leather chairs and invites to relax with a special view down into the Old Valley through a panoramic window. Broadband internet connection can be provided.

A spacious lounge an bar area offers room for meeting up with fellow travellers or simply for a retreat during the hot times of day. The restaurant not only offers an excellent, traditional African cuisine to our guests, but also is open for day-visitors or residents. Breakfast, lunch (3 course) and dinner (buffet) is served daily.

The small included pool offers refreshment and a unique view on a waterhole, where several animals can be spotted during morning or evening hours.
