Create an itinerary including Deadvlei
See some of the highest sand dunes in the world at Deadvlei, one of the most arid yet remarkably picturesque landscapes on the continent. As you reach the barren clay pan, notice that only a few skeletons of trees stand above the dry earth, while only a few species of plants survive off the dawn mist and extremely rare rainfalls. During your visit, wear a hat or sunscreen and always carry extra water. Add Deadvlei and other attractions to your Namib-Naukluft Park trip itinerary using our Namib-Naukluft Park trip itinerary builder tool.

  • Deadvlei is simply amazing. Get there as early as possible so that you have a chance to climb the dune(s) of your choice before the sun kills you. It was only 104° Fahrenheit when we were there, so we got out with only severe dehydration. Take a lot of water and be prepared to walk a lot. It's worth it.
  • Out of this world! Better go the latest possible, check a sunlight app for photos. Be careful to leave the gates on time.
