Namibia is home to the second largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon, the Fish River Canyon. A protected wildlife area, well stocked with game, it is more interesting for its geology. For the fit Namibia travel participant, an 86km hike provides insight into its sheer magnificence; otherwise there are shorter trails to lookout points on the canyon’s rim. There are hot mineral springs in the floor of the Canyon at the Ais-Ais rest camp.
