Fish River Canyon Accommodation

Its dimensions are enormous: 160 km long, up to 27 km wide and 500 m deep. The Fish River Canyon is seen as the largest canyon in Africa and second largest canyon on earth - after the Grand Canyon in the US. Just as impressive is the period of time during which it was formed: 350 million years ago a fault with a width of 20 km appeared and the river meandered through it in wide loops. When the ancient continent of Gondwana disintegrated 120 million years ago, the Fish River started to dig deep into the ground and create its system of gorges.

You can drive to several lookout points, or walk along the rim of the enormous gorge, or take a scenic flight. Please take note that day visitors are not allowed to climb down into the canyon.

Only participants of the 80 km hiking tour from Hiker’s Point to Ai-Ais are permitted to climb down into the canyon. The tour takes four to five days and can either be done in a private group or with a guide . Canyon hikes can only be booked for the cooler winter months.
