Fish River Canyon trek, Namibia

Fish River Canyon

Fish River Canyon Trips

In the far south of Namibia, the stupendous Fish River Canyon carves itself into the earth. It's the largest canyon in the southern hemisphere, and arguably second only to the Grand Canyon in terms of size. At 160km long, up to 27km wide and over 500m deep, only the Blue Nile Gorge in Ethiopia rivals it for second spot. 

Approaching the Fish River Canyon from the north is like arriving from space. The otherworldly landscape breaks up into a series of cliffs and boulders as the river meanders along below. The views from the rim are spectacular, and our Fish River Canyon tours make time for a walk alongside it in the afternoon, to be rewarded by superb sunset views.
