- Fishing (catch and release)
The most common fish in the Orange River are yellowfish, mudfish and catfish. Enthusiasts visit specifically for the Large-mouthed Yellowfish – a record weight is always a possibility. The fishing will reward both the dedicated and the casual holiday angler. Fish from the slipway near your camp site or paddle to the nearest rapid where 3 – 4 kg yellowfish and monster catfish are not uncommon. If you do not have a rod, hand line, hooks and sinkers can be purchased on site.
San petroglyphs are a 10-minute walk from the camp site.
- The Fish River Canyon & Ai-Ais
The spectacular Fish River Canyon is the largest canyon in Africa and the 5th largest in the world. Two hundred kilometres from Amanzi River Camp, this remarkable attraction can be visited as part of a day excursion and a visit to Ai-Ais hot water springs can also be included.
Bring your mountain bike along and enjoy the routes in the nearby Tandjieskoppe.
