More info about Fish River Canyon

Namibia is a land of many faces, sounds, sights, harsh but beautiful landscapes, dramatic coastlines and an unbelievable mesmerizing atmosphere. Located in the southern region of Namibia, the Fish River Canyon is a spectacular gorge dropping vertically from the immense desert flats into the lower reaches of the Fish River. Situated in the Fish River Canyon National Park, the second largest canyon in the world is absolutely breathtaking in its sheer size and mysterious desolate beauty. Situated at the gate of the park is Hobas campsite where visitors can find overnight accommodation or at the Ai-Ais Hot Springs Resort which also offer facilities such as tennis courts and a swimming pool, a wonderful venue for relaxing after a gruelling hike. Alternative lodging is available at a nearby upmarket lodge. From this point it is another 10 kilometres to the actual Fish River Canyon and visitors must be in possession of a permit from Namibia Wildlife Resorts as well as a medical clearance before attempting the demanding 4-5 days hike along the Fish River Hiking Trail. Less demanding hikes, equally picturesque, are offered at the bordering private nature park. Hell’s Bend is where the river turns back towards it own flow, given that there have been rain for it to flow, and is one of the most awe-inspiring sights of the canyon. Absorb the rugged splendour of the Fish River Canyon, discover the variety of flora which includes Namibia’s Quiver Tree and other drought resistant succulent plants. The canyon is home to some of the most poisonous snakes in Africa as well as several species of wild and bird life. Enjoy drives to the rim of the canyon or take a scenic flight to get a bird’s eye view of the immensity of the gorge. The Fish River Canyon is a paradise for wildlife and nature lovers, a photographers’ dream come true and is undoubtedly a natural wonder that leaves visitors gasping at its pure magnificence.
