Please be aware that the hike will include some rock climbing and clients are advised to be fit especially for the descend and ascend of the canyon.
Essentials to bring along on your hike:
Pack a smaller soft bag (if possible) with clothing to be used at the camp. The bag will be driven down by the back-up team.
You will need to have a small backpack for carrying water and lunch pack for each day. Guests will not be required to carry anything else.
Larger luggage will be kept safe at the lodge until your return. You will need sturdy worn-in hiking boots, bathing costume and warm clothing for winter nights. You will need to be fit and healthy to enjoy this unique adventure.
The first day’s hike is a steep, rocky descent that requires about three hours before you get to the bottom. From there it takes another 2 – 3 hours to cross the rocky plain to get to the first camp. The second and third days’ hikes follow the riverbed through thick sand interspersed with the occasional bouldered sections.
Type of clothing:
Temperatures can drop sharply after sunset, warm clothing is essential. We suggest you bring along outdoor safari clothing and strong, worn-in hiking boots for the hike itself. Your swimsuit is a must if you would like to swim and cool off in the rock pools along the Fish River.
The first and third camp is situated on the sandy banks of the river. The second and third day hike trails along the river's edge, allowing enough opportunity for swimming and breaking for lunch.
Accommodation/Camp – Tents will be pitched at each camp:
Comfortable tents and rustic showers at each camp adds to your hiking experience with Fish River Lodge. Take some much needed time to relax while our staff readies your meals. The camp chef will cater a full Continental and English breakfast in the mornings as well as a full three course dinner in the evenings.
There will be a bar with limited drinks of your choice and a sumptuous snack platter to nibble on before dinner while you enjoy the beautiful sunset over the pristine Fish River Canyon.
