The south of Namibia is wide-open and arid, but it’s this very austerity that makes the region so fascinating. Arguably the country’s most spectacular geological phenomenon, the Fish River Canyon cuts an impressive 161 km long gorge into an otherwise flat landscape. From here, attractions are spread across great distances, the reward being the land’s peace and quiet. To the north, you’ll find the Kokerboom Forest with its quiver trees.
To the south, the hot springs of Ai Ais and the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park.
