Situated alongside the upper part of Fish River Canyon, at the edge of the Kalahari, Vogelstrausskluft Lodge lies within the 260km2 Vogelstrausskluft Reserve. The lodge is built on the rise of a small hill, about 70 km north of the usual Fish Canyon viewpoints. The main building houses lounge, bar, restaurant, curio shop, and library. There is a campground five minutes walk from the restaurant. A herd of more than 60 Kudu antelopes resides permanently on the Vogelstrausskluft and the population of other kinds - including Oryx, Springbok, Klipspringer, Zebras, Baboons and Ostriches - is also growing.
