Fish River Canyon: the lat­est

go! - - Upfront | Letters -

I hiked the Fish River Canyon in May last year. What I en­joy about the trail is that you don’t have a set des­ti­na­tion that you have to reach each day – you just hike un­til you find a good spot to camp. The camp­site at Hobas near the start of the trail has been ren­o­vated – there’s now a restau­rant and a swim­ming pool. Ai-Ais, the end point, is also busy be­ing spruced up. (Dur­ing our visit it looked like a con­struc­tion site, but it should be great in time.) We used a shut­tle from Ai-Ais to get to Hobas at the start, but I wouldn’t rec­om­mend it. The driver of our minibus was very reck­less. CAREL BOTHA, Pre­to­ria
