The Fish River Canyon, is located in the south of Namibia. It is the largest canyon in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia. The canyon is the second largest in the world, after the Grand canyon in the USA.
The Fish River canyon features a gigantic ravine, in total about 100 miles (160 km) long, up to 27 km wide and in places almost 550 meters deep.
When driving to the canyon it is advisable to have a vehicle with heavy duty tires that can withstand a beating by the gravel roads. For the best rental car I and recommend www.windhoekcarhire.com as the company to use.
The area around the southern part of Fish River Canyon is a conservation area and encompasses Ai-Ais and Hobas regions.
