The Fish River Canyon is located in southern Namibia, West Africa. As the second largest canyon in the world, it’s a very popular destination among tourists. Although dry with only a small series of pools for most of the year, late summer flooding breathes new life into the 404 mile Fish River. Spectacular panoramic views await visitors of the Fish River Canyon, particularly at Hell’s Bend, a scenic overlook named after a horseshoe-shaped bend in the river.

I was watching a short Youtube Documentary Series recently which touched on Hell’s Bend and I became fascinated with it. These pictures are fantastic! Did you take them yourself? I was playing around with the map. I love that you included that here. I would love to go see Fish River Canyon in person some day 🙂
