Best view is from the main viewing deck. So head there first. After taking in the size of the canyon and its own special beautiful view take a drive to some of the other view points along the route, if you have time.

As it is not so easily accessible, there are no tourist crowds. So you’re likely to enjoy the canyon views almost alone

You cannot skip this on your trip through Namibia. Views are amazing. Ok, it is not the Grand Canyon, but definitely nice enough to go here. Don't expect restaurants or bars at the main viewpoint, but toilets are available. You could do some hikes from...More

If you are in the area, you should definitely visit the Fish River Canyon, it's amazing and if the sun shines the colours are very impressive.

Not a walk in the park but what you expect on a 6 day hike in the desert, when you are 100% self sufficient

This was a big disappointment for us! I believe that if you pay for a guided 5-day hike in the canyon, it is absolutely worth it! If we had enough time we wouldn´t hesitate. But if you´re not having enough time I would go that...More

We walked around the rim from the far car park to the main car park where the toilets are. This provided excellent opportunities to enjoy the views. Whilst the terrain is a bit rough it is mainly level and can be taken at a leisurely...More

90km hike they said! Starting in the early morning from Hobas, a minibus will take you to the starting point. A 2 1/2 hours decent to the ground of the canyon leaves you with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Hiking over boulders, through deep...More

The demanding hike along the canyon needs quite a lot of preparation, paperwork and an excellent physical condition. That was all not my case, so the best option was a sturdy 4WD, a pre-packed picknick, sunscreen and a hat. Take the tour to all the...More

If you stay at Fish River Lodge you can do a half day, full day, or multiple day hike with them. This was the only option I was able to find last August. Pricer but definitely worth it. We are a young couple (late 20s/early... More
