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.
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.
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.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
