Fish River Canyon Budget Travel

The biggest canyon in Africa is a popular scenic ‘must see’ stopover and Fish River Canyon budget travel is highly recommended.

Second in the world only to the Grand Canyon in the U.S.A, Fish River Canyon boasts an awesome 160 km in length, up to 27 km in width and in places is almost 550 metres deep.

Fish River Canyon Budget Safaris

With the ‘modern’ canyon located within a far more ancient canyon, travellers will need to put their imagination to good use to see if they can envision how much water was needed to create something of this scale. The views are spectacular and the size is indescribable.

While the Fish River is not often more than a trickle of water the annual rainy season can see it turn to a flood to isolated pools before quickly returning back to a trickle. Wildlife and vegetation is therefore pretty rare.

With a number of camping spots and a range of attractions to see including the famous wild horses, the Fish River Canyon budget safaris are sure to be an adventure to remember for ages.
