Fish River Canyon
The Fish River canyon, situated in the far south of Namibia, was formed by water erosion and the collapse of the valley due to movements in the earth's crust over 500 million years ago. With a depth of up to 550 metres, the Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world. The enormous gorge meanders along a distance of approx. 160 kilometres through the fissured Koubis massif all the way down to the hot springs of Ai-Ais.
The canyon is part of a national nature conservation park. The northernmost entrance is the gate at Hobas, a campsite 70 km north of Ai-Ais. From there, you have to drive another 10 kilometres to the main viewpoint which offers a stunning panorama of the famous "Hell's Bend". The vast rocky landscape breaks up into a series of spectacular cliffs, formed by the Fish River as it meanders between boulders. The river is seasonal and generally only flows in the rainy season from January to April.
