You don't expect to find one of the world's biggest canyons in this part of the world. The long dusty drive reveals a massive winding valley in the earth's crust where millions of years of erosion has worn away. Far below (more visible than the Grand Canyon) the Fish river snakes its way through the gorge. Stouthearts can climb down... 更多
We visited the canyon today. Dirt road from Grinau to the Canyon Roadhouse in superb condition. From there to the entrance to the Hobas camp and the main viewpoint the road deteriorates. Once in the camp, however, the 10 km road to the view point in in horrendously bad condition. We tried to follow the road further around but it... 更多
One of the biggest canyons in the world (they say, second after Colorado-USA). Dry, remote, steep canyon. One of the tourist spots in Namibia. It´s really impressive! The visit consists mainly in getting to different view points on the top of the canyon. It´s part of the huge Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. There are 2 areas in the Fish River Canyon... 更多

I enjoyed great MTB rides in the Hobas and Ais-Ais areas of the park. The roads and tracks are a little bit corrugated, so a soft-tail bike is an advantage, but the roads are quiet, the sky is wide and there is peace and quiet and beauty that just takes your breath away... more than the uphills do!
We stopped here to drop friends of our that hiked and it is a view to experience. It is so huge, beautiful and detailed. A really beautiful landscape
We were looking forward to the Fish River Canyon as one of the highlights on our four-country tour of Southern... 更多
