The Fish River Canyon is one of the most magnificent natural phenomena in Southern Africa and is the oldest canyon in the world. The hiking trail starts from the main viewpoint near Hobas and continues to Ai-Ais Hot Spring Resort. The trail is 86 - 96km long and takes an average of 5 days to complete.
Frik Olwage, founder and owner of Eco Ventures, has guided the Fish River Canyon, more than 50 times. Hiking the ‘Fish’ with Frik is an unbelievable experience. He knows all the easier footpaths on the hike and his stories, around a camp fire, make the history of the canyon even more interesting.
