Gondwana Canyon Park in Namibia

The Nama Karoo has yellow flowers of quiver trees which against the blue sky at the second largest canyon in the world. The quiver tree is a typical stem succulent of the Nama Karoo, and on the vast plains of Gondwana Canyon Park, several clusters can be found.

With an area of 1,120 km² and the first tract of land acquired in 1995, this park is the largest and oldest nature reserve of the Gondwana Desert Collection. Visitors to this area of Namibia can watch springbok, gemsbok, hartebeest, ostrich and mountain zebras.

Fish River Canyon

Its dimensions are enormous: 161 km long, up to 26 km wide and 505 meters deep. The Fish River Canyon is seen as the largest canyon in Africa and second largest canyon on earth - after the Grand Canyon in the US.

Just as impressive is the period during which it was formed: 340 million years ago a fault with a width of 21 km appeared and the river meandered through it in wide loops. When the ancient continent of Gondwana disintegrated 120 million years ago, the Fish River started to dig deep into the ground and create its system of gorges.
