Fish River Canyon is one of the great canyons of Earth. It is also a popular tourist destination which is frequented by many tours to Namibia. Unfortunately it is located in the far south of the country in a remote desert and a visit requires several days of driving from the capital. Additionally it is not possible to visit the canyon on a trail. Tours are possible only under various restriction during the cold season, individual tours are most likely lethal. So there is only a lookout at the northern rim of the canyon which may be visited during daylight hours.
