Whilst staying at the nearby Dead Valley Lodge, just inside the park gate at Sesriem, we visited the Sesriem canyon just before sunset. The scale of the canyon and the history of its creation are incredible - how the Tsauchab River carved a narrow 100 foot deep gorge out of the rock dating back 2,000,000 years. With our guide, we climbed down into the canyon and walked as far as it was possible before encountering fallen rocks, blocking the path inland. It was also interesting to learn about the last time the canyon flooded (2021 from memory) and trying to visualise the volume of water that must have forced its way through the canyon at the time, heading for Sossusvlei and the sea. Just incredible.

It was a bit of a hike going down into the canyon but if you are able bodied it shouldn't be a problem. It was shady at the bottom. We were told that this is one of the few places that holds water all year round. It was created by the Tsauchab river over millions of years. Our guide offered to take us for a walk down into the canyon which most did. Our guide found a Adwof pick snake, bitter bush (used as a flu remedy) link ringwood tree and lots of fantastic beetles running around. There was also a barn owl high up at the end of the canyon looking down at the tourists. One of the pools of water had a massive diving beetle which refused to come up for long enough to be photographed but was the size of small chicken egg. We made our way back up through the canyon and onto our wagon and in five minutes we were back at the Sossusvlei lodge.

A great walk through the canyon. While this is not the biggest canyon, it is well worth a visit. The rock formations as well as the creatures living in the canyon make for a good experience.

We went to the Sesriem Canyon as part of a guided tour from our hotel. While it can‘t make it up to the canyons in the US it is still quite nice and provides a stunning view as well as an area to cool off during a tour.

Make sure you are prepared. Hiking shoes, hats, sunblock and water. Also, walk slightly to the left of the car park to get to the path that takes you down into the canyon. We didn’t find it at first as we didn’t see any signs and ended up walking along the top first that has no access to the bottom of the canyon.
The walk is worth it so allow yourself a good 2 hours to walk and explore. The road to the canyon was awful, very corrugated, hopefully it has been graded since we were there.
