Obviously, the next day you’ll discover the Fish River Canyon, from whose top you will have a majestic view of this extraordinary natural phenomenon.

Once you reach the capital Windhoek, you will spend the night in hotel again. The next day, after delivering the off-road vehicle, we will say goodbye to the International Airport for the return flight.
