This was an AMAZING experience to see the Sesriem Canyon with water. One can not believe your eyes that there can be water in such a dry desert. I was there in 2013, and it was dry. Now there is water in it. Again.....AMAZING.

Small canyon near Sesriem. Worth a quick visit if you are in the area and does not compare with Sossusvlei and rest of the national park. Don’t expect the Grand Canyon!

Would you believe when we were there in early March, there was water flowing thru the canyon which made it impossible for us to walk thru it?!?! It was still interesting to see the canyon from the ridge above but likely not nearly as interesting as walking thru it.

This Canyon is easy to visit and walk through. We were here in the early afternoon and it is too hot to walk here. Go here early morning or late afternoon. It's an easy hike and fun to walk through.

Must see when in the area. Not difficult to access. Not a time consuming visit. Strongly recommended.

I disagree with the reviewer below who said the canyon is well-hidden; it seemed pretty easy to find for us. There are signs on the road just out from Sossusvlei Reception (it's before you enter Sossusvlei), and there's a parking lot that's easy to see, and then there's a path that seemed quite easy to locate. From there, you can take the "beaten" path or just head out on your own and scramble around the rocks for a bit, then make your way down and actually into the canyon. Walking either direction is cool; one gets wider while the other gets considerably narrower and feels sort of like the Souk at Petra (though w/ much shorter canyon walls--and no Treasury and the like waiting at the end).

A nice little walk, and cool thing to see outside Soss. Worth the visit if you're in the area anyway.

The canyon is well hidden and you almost walk past it. It is not easy to find the entrance. It is not big and a nice walk.

Amazing experience and you dont want to leave the place. Just take your time and take a long walk, be carefull with your steps, it can be easy to hurt your foot but other than that, just be there.

It's no distance from the entrance to the Sossusvlei reserve so it's worth having a look at this. There is a bit of scrambling involved so probably not suitable for the less mobile.

This find canyon is great for an afternoon walk when the temperature has dropped a bit. The magnificent geological feature is amazing to see. Have a wonder down the canyon on your own time.
