ECO VENTURE TOURS
Fish river canyon
Technically NOT in south africa but still a must do for all south africans.Exploring the world’s second largest canyon on foot – I mean! Does it get any more epic? Second only to the Grand Canyon in the US, the Fish River Canyon in Namibia stretches 180km from Seeheim in the north to the Orange River in the south. The trail itself covers just under half of the full distance of the canyon, starting at the viewpoint at Hobas and ending at Ai-Ais resort and spa.
Because of its arid climate, it can get very hot during the day and rather cold at night, so be sure to bring the appropriate clothes. Along the way you will be treated to starkly beautiful scenery, nourishing hot springs and the starriest skies you’ve ever imagined!
Number of days: 5 days
Difficulty: While there are no sharp inclines as you’d have with a mountain trail, extreme weather conditions, sand and boulders do pose something of a challenge. You should be relatively fit and have had trained before undertaking the trail.
