Our new Rim to River Hiking Trail is a dream come true for hikers wanting to experience one of the world’s most popular hiking destinations – the Fish River Canyon – but with the added comfort of slack packing. This trail immerses you directly into the dramatic landscape from the rim of the canyon - down to the Fish River below and back up to the rim again.
An experienced guide will point out the intriguing desert adapted Quiver tree standing solitary against a fascinating 500 million year-old geological back drop. Or you might want to stop and watch a herd of the rare Hartman’s Zebra as they disappear into a side canyon with black eagles soaring above? On hot days you can cool off in permanent rock pools and swim between the rock faces whilst a Pied Kingfisher watches from a ledge above.
Camp Eternity and Camp Edge are as evocative as their names suggest. Carefully designed stone gabion shelters merge with the landscape, yet stand sentinel over the canyon and beyond – a mesmerising palette of purples, oranges and terracotta. Meals are served under a billion stars and when you retire to the comfort of your tent – nature’s elements, either harsh or heavenly, are close by and will share the night with you.
