Here you go...and you even get a video of our very cool room!
I think it's totally amazing how they can build such an oasis in such dry, barren conditions. For example, here's the roadway into the place...
You turn left just after this mountain.
A little way further, you come to this...
In the middle of nowhere, you come to the greenery of Canyon Lodge.
We climbed the hill to get a view!
Our chalet. You can see Ruth sitting on the front porch.
This is one of the chalet's across from us.
Ruth, and the view from the front porch.
All of the chalets are built into the rocks.
Another chalet across from us.
When they led us to our room, they open the door and all you can do is say "Wow"!
I took a short video to give you all a better idea of the interior. Turn up the volume so you can hear my fantastic commentary!
Ruth, showing off the downstairs bathroom and tub!
The main part of the room.
They have a short hike amongst the boulders with a good view.
Us, near the top.
This boulder looks like it could start rolling any minute!
We were only spending one night at Canyon Lodge. We spent the afternoon lazing by their amazing pool!
Gorgeous swimming pool at Canyon Lodge.
We went on a sundowner drive that evening.
And we spotted a kudu.
And a rock agama.
A quiver tree.
Our guide (and bartender!) Valentino.
Having a sundowner picnic!
There are rabbits living in the rocks.
Ruth, waiting for the sunset.
Another day is done.
We went for a late dinner. It was Christmas day, and they even had roast turkey on the buffet table! I tried taking some pics, but it was fairly dark and they didn't turn out the best. I did get one of desert though...
Ice cream and plum.
We loved our stay at Canyon Lodge. Only drawback was that they were booked while we were there and we couldn't stay an additional day! So there's a warning to you. Book in advance so that you don't miss out!
