Widely regarded as the second largest river canyon in the world, (after the Grand Canyon in Arizona), the spectacular Fish River Canyon is a stunning natural wonder which has been carved out of the Namibian Desert. The astounding Canyon is over 160kms long from North to South, 27kms wide and over 550mt deep in places. In the floor of the Canyon flows the Fish River, alternating between a trickle in the dry season and a ranging torrent that continues the erosion process, after good rains. The wildlife that are sustained by the permanent water in the canyon floor includes wild horses, mountain Zebra, Kudu and Klipspringer, as well as abundant birdlife. Hiking the Canyon is a Highlight of any visit to Namibia.
