Truly appreciate Fish River Canyon with three different desert perspectives. It’s you and a guide, deep in the desert, hundreds of miles from anything.
First by road, rattling over bumps and going far off road, dust flying around as you maraud across arid savannah. It’s hot and sweaty and oh so brilliant as you watch the red desert unfurl.
Rest. Then when the day’s heat begins to fade you go for a walk. Explore the ridges and watch how sunset colours illuminate the world’s second largest canyon.
After a night in a beautiful desert camp you see the desert from the air. From up high you follow the ridgeline, tracing 100 kilometres of the great canyon. And when people ask where you have been you don’t want to say Namibia or Fish River Canyon. This place is too special to share too widely.
