Yellow Satin Flower

Namibia

Yellow Satin Flowers (Grielum humifusum) have dark-green lobed leaves. Their cup-shaped flowers grow in flat sandy places along the banks of the Orange River and around the Fish River Canyon.

Duiker are fond of their roots, thick fleshy protein-rich food which are also a source of moisture as well as a food source. Flowering time is in the spring and the colours and time vary from region to region. They semi-frost hardy, require full sunshine and attract butterflies and bees.

Ai-Ais Resort

Fairly basic accommodation at the famous hot-springs near the southern end of the Fish River Canyon

Canyon Lodge

Probably the most popular lodge in the area. Friendly staff, interesting rooms and an emphasis on growing all local produce make for a wonderful stay

Canyon Roadhouse

The smaller sibling to the Canon Lodge & Village, this fun establishment boasts loads of character

Canyon Village

Supposedly laid out like an African village - this tends to be second choice to the Lodge but still offers good value

Fish River Lodge

On the opposite edge of the canyon to all the other lodges, Fish River Lodge offers a unique perspective, excellent service and stunning views

Hobas

Campsite close to the main viewpoint over the Fish River Canyon
