Fish River Canyon & Ai-Ais

Fish River Canyon & Ai-Ais

The Fish River Canyon in the Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is with its length of 160 kilometers and its width up to 27 kilometers and up to 550 meter deep, the longest interior river and the largest Canyon in Africa and the second largest canon in the world, after the Grand Canyon in the US.  It features a gigantic ravine, and the river flows intermittently, usually flooding in late summer – the rest of the year it becomes a chain of long narrow pools.  The Ai-Ais Hot Springs are part of the transboundary protected area and lie on the Namibian side.  The nature in this region is very original and characterized by high mountains, beautiful and dramatic landscapes and absolute peace and quiet.
