Ranked as the largest canyon in Africa, the Fish River Canyon is located in the II Karas region, south of Namibia, and is considered the second most-visited tourist attraction site in Namibia. The canyon is about 100 miles long and 27 kilometers wide. Some locations are estimated to be 550 meters deep, offering amazing sceneries for holiday photography.

The Fish River Canyon is made up of an upper canyon, where river erosion was inhibited by hard gneiss bedrocks, and a lower canyon formed after erosion had finally worn through the gneisses.
