Fish River Canyon Area

The southern parts of Namibia are in stark contrast to the abundance of wildlife in the north. The focus lies more on scenery, of which the south can paint canvasses unlike any other in shades of vibrant yellows, deep reds and subtle browns. The area encompasses beautiful gems and a rich history to compensate for the lack of large herds of game. Do not be fooled by the wide open plains and seemingly empty landscapes though, the south holds treasures galore. With small picturesque towns and incredible scenery, the south offers visitors a chance to get lost in an expanse without horizons. The southern natural riches include the Fish River Canyon, second largest in the world, and the Bogenfels, a most peculiar rock formation on the southern coastline. Historical wonders range from the intrigue of Lüderitz to the mysteries of ghost town Kolmanskuppe. The south brings new meaning to vast open spaces and will test your ability to throw your cares to the wind.
