View from the top is a series of posts showing you some of the best views from the top that I have had the pleasure of visiting. This weeks ‘View from the top’ comes to you from one of my favourite countries in Africa – Namibia.
Namibia had some of the most incredible scenery in all of Africa and Fish River Canyon was the icing on the cake on the very last day in Namibia before crossing into South Africa.
Fish River Canyon is located in the southern part of Namibia and it is the second biggest canyon in the world after the very famous Grand Canyon in the States. The canyon is over 500m deep and 100 miles in length so it was a very impressive sight.
We got dropped at one side of the canyon and spent just over an hour walking the rim of the canyon and taking in the incredible view from the top.
There are hiking tracks that are very popular that go through the canyon but as we only had an hour at the Fish River Canyon we could just walk around the rim of the canyon.
There was a fantastic horse shoe shaped part of the canyon where you could see the river running right through. It was such an awesome view and it was also a great stop off point to sit and appreciate the beauty of Namibia after just over a week in this fantastic country.
Have you been to Fish River Canyon before?
