Fish River Canyon, Namibia

northern experience

The Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world. It boasts a drop of 1, 800ft (550m) in some areas and reaches 17 miles (27km) at its widest point, measurements that place this as a must-see highlight on a Namibia safari!

You’ll be able to discover the wonderful hiking trails that typify the Fish River Canyon floor, covering a distance of 54 miles (86km). There is a certificate of fitness required by the National Parks’ office because of the somewhat rough and demanding sections of the trails, and our team will be more than happy to help you with any information that you might need in preparation for your African adventure.

Whilst there is little wildlife to be seen at the bottom of the Canyon as a result of the rugged rocks and ravines, there are still springbok and steenbok to be seen, as well as kudu and mountain zebra. For twitchers, there are a wide variety of birds and raptors to be seen as you traverse the trails of the world’s second-biggest canyon and take in its magnificent scenery!
