Fish River Canyon

Africa’s Largest, Dramatic Canyon

Fish River Canyon

The impressive Fish River Canyon, situated in the south of Namibia, is the second largest canyon in the world, and the largest in Africa. It features a 160 kilometre long (100 mile) ravine, which is up to 27 kilometres wide and in places 550 metres deep. The Fish River, the longest interior river in Namibia, cuts deep into the dry and stony plateau, which is covered with sparse, highly specialised drought-resistant plants. The Canyon offers breath-taking viewpoints, walks and hiking trails in a pristine, peaceful and stunning environment. The Fish River flows intermittently, generally flooding towards the end of summer, and otherwise forming a long chain of narrow pools which can be reduced to just puddles in the dry season.

Fish River Canyon highlights include:

• The main viewpoint offers dramatic views of the canyon as the flat arid plateau drops vertically more than 500 metres without any warning
• Walking along the spectacular rim of the world’s second largest chasm, the dramatic Fish River Canyon
• Exploring the fragile yet tough flora and fauna of the Nama Karoo and Succulent Karoo deserts around the spectacular Fish River Canyon
• Diverse, incredibly photogenic canyon scenery including 360-degree panoramic views, gorges and springs
• Swimming and fishing in natural pools
