Namibia attractions - A well known highlight of the southern region, the Fish River Canyon is the largest canyon in the Southern Hemisphere, second only in the world to the Grand Canyon.

 
Fish River Canyon

Measuring 160km (99 miles) in length and 27km (79 miles) wide and around 550m in depth, it was formed over hundreds of millions of years, by a fracture in the earth's crust and then further carved by the erosion of the Fish River. The gorge winds through the arid desert landscape, cutting through the great plateau and surrounded by imposing cliffs and large boulders.  The immensity of this magnificent landscape is truly breathtaking. The Fish River itself is seasonal and generally only flows in the rainy season from January to April.

The Fish River Canyon is popular with hikers in winter. This area is quite strenuous and you should have a very high level of fitness and good health.

The canyon comes to an end at Ai-Ais (meaning Burning Water), where the therapeutic hot water spring is believed to cure rheumatism. The park has more recently linked with the environmentally similar Richtersveld in South Africa, to form Namibia’s first transfrontier or peace park: Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier Park.
