Fish River Canyon, Namibia – the second largest canyon in the world and one of the best treks in Africa.
The following is a little description of my adventures along the Fish River Canyon hike. Kobus Alberts, Director Wild at Heart Safaris – Namibia
The trip started at Okahanje Lodge, 70kms north of Windhoek, at 0430 on the 23rd august and we travelled more then 700kms south to reach Hobas at about 1530 and start the first part of the Canyon hike.
The food bags were organised, backpacks loaded up and we got a lift to the main look out which was also the start of our hike.It was an impressive awesome sight and i was bubbling with excitement. There were folks there admiring the views and i remember feeling how lucky i was to get the chance to go to the bottom and walk 85kms following the meandering course of the river to Ai-Ais.

Wild at Heart Safaris, Namibia signs up to International SOS
Wild at Heart Safaris joined International SOS, who is the world’s leading provider of medical assistance in remote areas, international healthcare, security services and outsourced customer care.
Our country provides for world class private hospitals, but these are not worth a penny if you can’t access them. Recently, our team decided that investing in the safety of our clients should be a major priority, especially seeing that we spend so much time in remote areas.
We have always thrived in creating itineraries that gives clients a taste of wilderness and thereby creating some of the most memorable experiences ever. It is unfortunately, also true that accidents happen at times least expected. This becomes even more of a problem when an accident happens in one of the remote areas of Namibia.
We are wild at heart, yet responsible…
