Fish River Canyon

Visit Fish River Canyon

Introduction

The area around the Fish River Canyon in Namibia's far south is arguably the most desolate yet most impressive in the country.

A lunar-like landscape supports an ecosystem of desert plants, cacti, succulents and quiver trees, surviving in defiance of the bareness of the arid and rocky countryside.

The huge gash in the earth that is the Fish River Canyon itself is Africa's second largest canyon and one of Namibia's top destinations.

Witness spectacular views from the observation point at Hobas then head into the depths to enjoy the hot springs at Ai-Ais.

The 85-km, four-day Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail is one of southern Africa's toughest. Loose sand and large boulders make the going tough. Add to that the fact hikers need to carry all provisions with them and produce medical certificates before undertaking the trek and you can see why it is not suitable for beginners or the unfit.
