What a dune. I've climbed dudes before, but never one this huge. Good exercise. I took my time on the climb and didn't get winded or fatigued. I brought bottled water with me. Great view from the top. There were a fewer other people in various stages of the climb and descent. I was here in the morning.

We climbed Dune 7 one Saturday morning to the top - was quite a climb but easier than Big Daddy. Stunning sights from the top. Tips: go in the morning when the sand is cool and you can climb barefoot. There is also no wind in the mornings, but it does pick up in the afternoon. We climbed around 9am and had the dune to ourselves for a while. Run down and go to Dune 7 Adventures for sand boarding and quad biking - amazing!

A spectacular, beautiful dune, the highest on earth: 383m (1 256 ft)! Experience it on your own! Drive there alone or with family, it is only 13km from Walvisbaai. If you want to, pack water and a picnic basket, climb it at your own pace or just enjoy the view at the bottom. Once in a lifetime experience!

Amazing experience. The climb can be a bit tough, we are quite fit and still had a bit of a struggle but it only took about 20 minutes. When you reach the top you will definitely realise it's worth the climb! Perfect spot for photographs! Getting down is the easy part and only takes about 5 minutes.
Don't even try to use the bathrooms, it's absolutely horrid! Rather go to the restaurant and ask to use the theirs.

Quad biking over and through the majestic sands in the desert, what a perfect way to end the day. Our guide was brilliant and quads in good condition. Nice friendly people and great fotos to be taken. A few surprises along the way by our guide but won't let them out. Go do it yourself

Lovely clean sand moving if windy (nor when we visited). Quite a climb and worth a visit. We visited in Jan 2019.

Well this was not like anything I had ever experienced before. The dunes in this area are magnificent and the tourists love to climb them. Views from the top are great. It's a wild landscape.

Unless you chat to locals, there is no indication of which is the best way to tackle this monster of a sand dune. We hit the dune at about 5am and tackled it from the left side. It took us a slow hour and half to get up and we were well in time to watch the sun rise which was our goal. I think this was a prime time rather than the heat of the day which also makes the sand slippery and hot. A small gift shop selling Dune 7 merchandise would do well. Got a tick on my bucket list but I won't be doing that again LOL.
