Nature can be truly awe-inspiring, especially when you are faced with a place so overwhelming, both in its size as its beauty as Fish River Canyon.

We reached Swakopmund on our CapeToVicFalls Adventure and, after two nights of camping in the cold desert, were excited about the comfort of a hotel and town.
