Next we drove to the Fish River Canyon, it is the second largest canyon in the world and the largest in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia. It features a gigantic ravine, in total about 100 miles long, up to 342 miles wide and in places almost 1,800 feet deep.

The Fish River is the longest interior river in Namibia, but its flow in the present is a puny trickle compared with the immense volume of water that poured down its length in ages past. It cuts deep into the plateau which is today dry, stony and sparsely covered with hardy drought resistant plants.

We stopped during middle of the day, the view was very interesting as the pictures show.
