Beautiful Canyons #5

The Fish River Canyon in Namibia

Many requests for the canyons series have prompted us to continue it. Therefore now follows the 5th part.

Part 2 of this series took place in the already neighboring country South Africa. Now it goes once again to the African continent, where you can get to know another spectacular canyon, the Fish River Canyon in Namibia.

The canyon is located in southern Namibia. It is the largest canyon in Africa, measuring about 160 kilometers long, up to 27 kilometers wide and up to 550 meters deep. The riverbed, washed out by the Fish River, is considered the second largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon.

The Fish River Canyon impresses with its unique landscape. Only a few green bushes can be seen along the Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail on the canyon floor and its burned out landscape. Water in the riverbed is only seen after heavy rains, especially in March and April; this persists in parts of the riverbed until June, after which there are only pools. Easily accessible worldwide by jet, Namibia combines everything you imagine Africa to be: endless expanses, colorful desert landscapes, "wild Africa" in a natural setting, and of course one of the most spectacular canyons in the world.
