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.

  • Spectacular! And beautiful!! The view from the tallest dune (the Big Daddy) is amazing - it's quite a climb up - take your time. Be sure to NOT touch the trees - they'll get destroyed. And if you think you're just one person who couldn't cause harm, then you're one of thousands who contribute to the damage. Let's please collectively preserve the Deadvlei.
  • Beautiful (but quite windy) in the morning. One can easily go with their own 4x4, just lower the tire pressure. Otherwise the van is 180 Namibian Dollars per person and quite efficient. No need to go super early, it gets more impressive when the sun is out
