"Children working for heritage"


Date: 20.08 - 03.09. 2005
Site:  Gaap and Fishriver canyon
Biome:   Nama Karoo
Special Features:

Following the break-up of Gondwanaland some 130 Million years ago major continental uplift resulted in the deep incision of the river to its present day level and exposing impressively the different geological features.

Although the canyon falls within the Nama Karoo biome, patches of Succulent Karoo result in a very diverse Flora and Fauna which, along with the endemics, makes it an important and very interesting ecosystem.
