Namibia’s Fish River Canyon is the second-largest canyon in the world after USA’s Grand Canyon, stretching 17 miles long and plunging to depths of up to 1,800 feet. The ancient site was carved out over the centuries by the Fish River, which has a slow-moving current, allowing several beautiful natural pools interspersed with long sandy stretches to develop. During a trip around the Fish River Canyon, soak up the sweeping views from several panoramic viewpoints which allow you to truly appreciate the grandeur of the site. For a more immersive experience, venture into the canyon to undertake the Fish
River Hiking Trail (you will need a good sturdy pair of walking boots for this). During the hike, keep an eye out for the country’s national tree - the Kokerboom, or Quiver Tree – which can be found in the canyon.
