    Fish River Canyon

    September 9, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We were at Fish River Canyon early this morning after a 5.30am start and walked from one view point to the next as the path winds its way along a small part of the edge of it. It is the second largest canyon in the world and has a double layer with the Fish River at the the bottom of the gorge. This is just another fine example of the scenery that Namibia has to offer ans a great place to eat beans on toast for breakfast too! It wasn't too long a drive to get to our final destination for the day, the Orange River, on our final journey in Chui, the big yellow truck. The rock formations on the hills and mountains was more impressive than before although we were very surprised to come around a corner and find huge vineyards in the midd of the dusty desert. We had to do the third and final truck clean in the heat of the afternoon but could at least cool off in the pool afterwards. A bit of a treat to be camping on grass after many nights sleeping on sand, dust and stones (it's the small things!).Read more

    Canyon looks fantastic - very impressive. The vineyard looks even more attractive! Cleaning out the truck in heat of day looks somewhat less attractive...

    The gorge, the river and the vineyard all look fantastic. Cleaning out the truck is just getting you used to work for when your travels are over and you are back to everyday life!!! Enjoy the last few days of your trip, love xxxx

    Great photos, very surprising to find a vineyard there. Is that suntan you 2 are wearing, or rust & dirt ??? Looking good, ready to return to the cooler, wetter weather back here, autumn has certainly arrived ! Enjoy your last few days xxx
