WHY

In the southern part of Namibia you will find the Fish River Canyon, the largest canyon in Africa. It's a place of natural beauty and geological significance.

The canyon itself stretches over 160 km 99 miles long and up to 27 km / 17 miles wide and in some areas it is approximately 550 meters / 180 feet deep. Providing the main attraction, Fish River Hiking Trail. It is a challenging trek that takes hikers through the winding maze to the heart of the canyon, providing a closer look at its unique beauty, geology and iconic landscapes.
Besides hiking, you can explore the region by various activities, such as mountain biking and scenic flights over the canyon. The mountain zebras, kudu, springbok, and wild horses are easily spotted in the canyon despite the dry nature of the region.

The wildlife coupled with the unique landscapes of the canyon makes this a photographer's paradise.

WHEN

Fish River Canyon is a great destination to visit year-round, but to experience all the region can offer, the best time to visit would be from May to September.

The weather is cooler, which allows more outdoor activities. The skies are clear and dry providing memorable game viewing, as the animals congregate around waterholes. From November - April, the landscapes are greener but there are fewer chances to spot the desert-adapted wildlife as they tend to not congregate around watering holes.

WHERE

The Fish River Canyon has become a popular hiking destination and attracts different visitors, therefore providing accommodation ranging from luxury lodges to rustic camping sites.

Great great service!
It’s my 1st time going to Africa and I didn’t even know where to start. Thanks to Safari.com (Jayson and Catherin), I simply have not had to worry about anything. Their service and help has gone beyond any travel agent I’ve ever experienced. Any doubt I have, they were responsive, quick and efficient. And always so so nice.

Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates…
Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates on my Safari change a couple of times and she was more than accommodating making everything work for me with no stress. The resort she picked for me is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to stay there. I’m also staying 3 nights in Cape Town and she took care of my hotel and of all my connecting flights . Was a big relief and spoke to her on the phone a couple of times. Very sweet highly recommend if you want a stress free vacation

Fast, Friendly, and Reliable Service
My travel advisor Mel was amazing. She was timely in her response, non judgemental about my budget, ans very helpful in figuring out potential safaris to fit my desires. She was super friendly and knowledgeable, and never once made me feel like I was out of my league.

Great service from Jayson at Safari.com
Jayson and his team have worked hard to help us put together a safari package that would hit all the points on our wish list. After weeks of work, when we came with some changes to the itinerary, he worked it in and added time in a location we hadn't considered, but we think is worth the time. They provided lot's of useful information and respond quickly to our frequent questions. Though we will not be taking our trip for a few weeks yet, we are excited and looking forward to having a once in a lifetime experience!
