The dunes are great to see and challenge oneself with climbing. Best to climb when it's not too hot as the sand burns. But overall fun to do.

Dune 7 is a must-visit if you are in the Swakopmund-Walvis Bay area as it is an iconic and beautiful natural wonder to behold. The climb itself isn't too strenuous if you take it slow and start at the longer side from the left of the Dune. It is definitely worth it when you reach the top and are able to take in the amazing views of the surrounding area. It is good to note that there is an entrance fee now for all visitors, even if they don't plan on climbing the dune. When I visited, the fee was N$ 100 per person for those from SADC countries, but I have to say it has contributed to the overall safety of the area. If you aren't planning on climbing the Dune you can still take in it's beauty from the parking area outside the gate. I was however disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the area. The area at ground level of the Dune was dirty with lots of small litter spread around, and the bathrooms were dirty as well. The staff were also very lacklustre. They weren't very helpful or friendly and gave the impression that they didn't really want to be there. Given that an entrance fee is now being charged, I think the staff could do a better job of keeping the area clean. Overall, I would have given Dune 7 a 3 out of 5, however I always enjoy visiting and climbing it and definitely think it is still a must visit.

Take water and sunscreen and take your time to walk up the dune, it just has to be done when you visit Namibia. Nice view from the top as well.

You can get up the dune quickly along a variety of routes. The views at the top are stunning and you can walk along the ridge at the top. Well worth doing.

The world's 7th largest sand dune. Surrounded by a sand sea between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

Awesome sight looking down from the dune at the sand sea desert. A genuinely unique experience. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We did a tour and the dune was so far away that you couldn't really enjoy. When they show you pictures, it looks like you are right there. No!!

Great place to hang out during the hot days. The top of the dunes is cooler and the view from there is worth the effort!
