8 Day Namibia in a Nutshell Tour

Itinerary

Day 1
Fish River Canyon

The Fish River Canyon, is located in the south of Namibia. It is the largest canyon in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in Namibia. It features a gigantic ravine, in total about 160 kilometres long, up to 27 km wide and in places almost 550 meters deep.
The Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon worldwide after the Grand Canyon in the USA . The Canyon forms part of the state-run Ais-Ais Richtersveld Transfontier Park. Entrance to the Park is situated 10 kilometres from the well-known view point Hell`s Bend at the Hobas Restcamp.
The Fish River is 800 kilometres long and thus the longest river of Namibia. It has its source in the eastern parts of the Naukluft Mountains. After about 200 km the river flows into the Hardap Dam which is the largest water reservoir of the country with a circumference of 30 km and a surface area of 28 km².
The Fish River Canyon commences at Seeheim, at the lower course of the River. The Canyon is 161 km long, 27 km wide and up to 550m deep. The Fish River Canyon ends at Ai Ais and the river then flows into the Orange River, the border to South Africa

Day 2
Augrabies Falls National Park

Located in the Northern Cape along the N14 national highway, the Augrabies Falls National Park is 120 kilometres (74.4 miles) west of Upington and 40 kilometres (24.8 miles) north-west from Kakamas. A popular stop-over with tourists travelling to or from the Kgalagadi Tranfrontier Park, visitors wanting to visit the nature reserve should travel along the N7 from Cape Town towards Springbok, turning onto the N14 when you reach Springbok and travelling to Kakamas and Upington. Just before Kakamas there is a left turn onto the R359 and the national park will be sign posted from there.
The Augrabies Falls waterfall and the adjoining ravine are considered one of the most spectacular sights in South Africa and is a highly recommended destination. Located in an arid-area, the reserve offers spectacular scenery and is one of the best locations in South Africa to view Klipspringer and Dassies (Rock Hyrax). The nature reserve is not only about the waterfall and visitors should take time to explore the surrounding area as well. The Klipspringer Hiking trail is a 3 day, 2 night hiking trail that leads one further into the reserve, providing an excellent overview of the landscape.
