Gariep (Orange) River – Fish River Canyon, Namibia
Today you have the chance to embark on an optional canoe safari out on the river in the morning, if you did not take part the previous night. If you opt out of this, you are always free to unwind on the edge of the water for a while before we pack up and leave, before arriving at the wonderful Fish River Canyon. One of the natural wonders of Africa, the incredible Canyon is around 500 metres deep and over 160 kilometres long, and is known as the second largest canyon in the world! Photographic opportunities are plentiful this afternoon as we take in the breathtaking descent of the sun from the canyon’s infamous sharp river bend known as ‘Hell’s Corner’. This is a fantastic opportunity to locate a quiet spot where you can marvel at the magificent Fish River Canyon.
