Get to Know The Fish River Canyon

The Fish River has carved out a spectacular canyon over 500m deep that snakes its way through southern Namibia for 160km to the confluence with the Orange River

Namibia's world-class canyon is protected within the Fish River Canyon National Park. Visitors have a few alternatives to choose between when deciding how to explore the lengthy gorge.

Undoubtedly the best way to truly appreciate this spectacular geological masterpiece is from the five-day self-supported hiking trail that descends into the canyon's depths and follows the winding seasonal river all the way to the Ai-Ais Hot Springs. The hot springs resort provides weary hikers with an excellent base to recuperate for a couple of days, soaking their tired legs and aching muscles in the natural thermal pools.
