Fish River Canyon, Namibia

Fish River Canyon in Namibia

The Fish River Canyon in southern Namibia with a length of 160km and a width from 27km up to 550meters deep is the largest canyon in Africa. This is not an ancient river that has washed out over millions of years by the Earth's surface, but warping of the earth's crust. From different viewpoints you can see this natural wonder.

In the African winter months, between May to September, it is possible to explore the whole length of the canyon in the river bed. The rest of the year it is dreadfully hot here and therefore too dangerous for any outdoor activities.
