Another view you won’t want to miss is the river hiking route of the Fish River Canyon, a dried out natural wonder which has been carved into the Namibian desert. It’s one of the world’s largest river canyons (the second largest to be precise) and a view from the top down is pretty impressive. It stretches a massive 160 kilometres from north to south, it’s over 550 metres deep and it’s a whopping 27 kilometres wide. It’s also over 500 million years old! As well as the canyon views, the hiking route will also give you an opportunity to spot rare wild horses, mountain zebra and various bird species.
