CANYON ROADHOUSEFill up on smiles at this extraordinary and out-of-the-ordinary lodge. Resembling a roadhouse with a large red roof, the lodge is a veritable treasure-house and a 'must-do' stop when visiting the canyon. The outside area hints of the wonderland interior with its rusty old Chevys and Fords from a bygone era adorned with corky quiver trees and desert flora. Park your vehicle and step inside. As if you have entered an Aladdin's cave (an Aladdin interested in the good old days of the automobile, that is), the large doors open onto an International truck serving as the reception desk, a 'pompstasie' (filling station) bar and an assortment of classic vehicles and transport paraphernalia assembled with an innovative and creative flair - and a good deal of humour. Restaurant tables are placed in between and several cars serve as zany fireplaces in the chilly winter months.
Canyon Roadhouse has more than a fascinating interior. Large attractive rooms, positioned around courtyards, make the Roadhouse a comfortable - and convenient - base when visiting the Fish River Canyon, just fourteen kilometres away. The canyon resort has a swimming pool, a campsite, a terrace to enjoy Roadhouse specialities like Amarula cheesecake (and the best cappuccino for miles around) and a walking trail through the hills. Sunset is best appreciated from the hill above the lodge looking out onto the flat-topped Holoog Mountain and the Gondwana Canyon Park. Take a guided excursion to the canyon viewpoints, hike the 3-4 day superlative canyon trail or drive the 4x4 Wildebeest Route towards Canyon Lodge and Village to view zebra and wildebeest - and who knows what other interesting wildlife - on the grassy plains. Be sure to include this quirky lodge - constructed with flair, creativity, mischief and a zest for life - into all travel plans! (ps. The lodge also has its own fuel station, so remember to fill up on fuel and smiles when visiting the canyon.) S 27˚ 31.439 E 17˚ 48.680
