Hiking season kicks off at Fish River Canyon

The Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism, in collaboration with Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR), have announced that there is sufficient water in the Fish River Canyon for the upcoming hiking season in May.

NWR spokesperson Nelson Ashipala said this in a press release on Friday.

“We are pleased to announce that, following a thorough appraisal of water resources in Fish River Canyon, there is sufficient water available for the upcoming hiking season.

“This means hikers can look forward to a rewarding experience,” he said.

Ashipala said water marshals will be stationed at strategic points along the hiking routes, including King Palace and Bushy Corner, to ensure the safety and well-being of all hikers.

“These marshals are part of our commitment to providing a secure and enjoyable hiking environment,” he said.

NWR will also launch a new Responsible Hiking Campaign, starting next week.

“Our social media channels will feature valuable tips on hiking preparation, safety and environmental responsibility,” said Ashipala, adding that these tips are designed to enhance the hiking experience, while preserving the natural beauty of the environment.

“We encourage all interested hikers to stay tuned to our social media platforms and to prepare themselves for a memorable adventure in one of Namibia’s most breathtaking landscapes,” he said.
