Fish River Canyon

The Fish River Canyon is the largest canyon in Africa and the second-largest in the world (after, you guessed it, the Grand Canyon). This staggeringly beautiful and breath-taking landscape is located in the south of the country, where the Fish River flows towards the Orange River. It is a popular hiking destination, and rightly so. We love the Fish River Canyon for its mesmerising chasms, and in the dry season, the river’s remaining puddles that shimmer along the hiking trails on the floor of the canyon while the textured walls of this eroded rock rise around us.

The Canyon has been forming over an estimated 100 million years, making it nothing less than a piece of history. The geology of the canyon is celebrated throughout the world. Its ravine is 160km long, 27km wide, and can reach up to 550m in depth – an utterly awe-inspiring carving in the earth’s surface. At the lower end of the Fish River Canyon are the hot springs at Ai-Ais, which is certainly somewhere to visit. This is a place to unwind and admire the mind-defying layers of earth, bask in the rugged scenery, and backpack along the ancient canyon floor.
