Update on Fish River Canyon Hike


Windhoek, 26 April 2023 – Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) would like to inform all hikers that an assessment of Fish River Canyon was recently conducted by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. The assessment found that the water levels in the canyon are lower than expected due to the low rainfall season in the south of Namibia.


In light of this, NWR has decided to deploy water marshals in the canyon to assist hikers during the hiking season, which starts on 1 May 2023. These water marshals will ensure that hikers have access to safe drinking water and will monitor water usage to conserve this valuable resource.


Furthermore, hikers are advised to carry water purifying tablets during their hike to ensure that they have access to clean water at all times. This precautionary measure is essential, especially in light of the low water levels in the canyon.”


NWR remains committed to ensuring that all hikers have a safe and enjoyable experience at Fish River Canyon. We encourage hikers to adhere to all safety protocols and to respect the environment during their hike.
