• Image of the week: Fish River Canyon, Namibia

    Take a second look

    It’s a big, vast grand canyon. But it’s not THE Grand Canyon. Take a closer look and you’ll see this is Fish River Canyon in Namibia. Its enormous ravine runs 160km long and up to 27km wide, making it the second largest canyon in the world.

    You’ll feel like you’re standing on the edge of the earth, and in some ways, I guess, you are.
