Feeling high while exploring the depths of the canyon

25. June 2018, inke - Gondwana Collection, Discover Namibia

“If you are looking for a smooth adventure - this is perfect. Not as tough as the big ‘real’ hike, and still a lovely experience.” What a positive feedback of a hiker, who recently participated in Gondwana’s Canyon Klipspringer Trail. Just imagine exploring the Fish River Canyon from as close as it gets, hiking in almost pristine nature with just a light backpack, dreaming at the campfire… Since April this year 140 hikers tackled the Canyon Klipspringer Trail in the northern parts of the second largest canyon in the world.

Their main focus is to help pets from low or no income households in areas where no veterinary services are available. At the beginning of June, Dr Ian Baines and his team visited the Eastern Zambezi Region. Gondwana supported their cause and invited them to stay at their lodges.

On the road: along the Canyon-Diamond Route

15. June 2018, inke - Tourism, Gondwana Collection

Sparkling stones, wild horses, sweeping desert vistas and old diamond-mining towns epitomise this section of Namibia... There’s mystery and intrigue to be had in Namibia’s south-western corner where diamonds were once so numerous that they were said to sparkle by the light of the moon. And, where champagne was cheaper than water. But, that doesn’t mean that you have to rush to get there. No siree. The canyon first needs its due respect.
