Canyon Mule Trekking
The Fish River Canyon in Namibia is the second largest in the world it has gorges that are 500 metres deep in places and runs through two deserts – the Succulent Karoo and the Nama Karoo – the most diverse deserts on earth.
Imagine getting to know the unusual flora, such as quiver trees, candelabra euphorbia and tamarisk while keeping an eye out for the mountain zebra, kudu, klipspringer, springbok and ostrich that have made the area home, and all this on foot with just a day pack on your back.
The mules take the luggage and supplies off ahead to set up camp and to prepare your evening meals on an open fire. You have the option of either a 3 night or 4 night adventure as you hike down in to the Canyon and explore the pristine wilderness and sleep under the stars.
The hiking season is limited to Namibia’s winter when the temperatures are cooler and the optimum months are August and September, after that it is too hot to undertake the challenge.
This is for those that are physically fit and keen on nature and adventure. It is also a wonderful way to appreciate a unique environment at your pace.
