This is a must visit location. You must have a 4 wheel drive to get around to best locations. Take a picnic and drive along the tracks into the dunes. You'd expect sea over the other side of the dunes but its just more sand....More

Absolutely beautiful. We were up at 5:30a to "race down to Dune 45 to do the climb (OMG be in shape) to see the sun rise. Though spectacular, I would recommend going farther away from the crowds to Deadvlei, as there is a huge dune...More

We went on a guided trip from Hoodia Lodge. We were shown desert creatures then travelled past other groups to an area with no-one else around. Just us, we climbed a sand dune, ran down the other side and walked along a dry river bed...More

Campsite is not the prettiest due to dust and parking lot feel but the surrounding area is breathtaking! Pool is a good plus!

We had a great time in Sossusvlei and only got stuck once. The views are unforgettable. The drive can be hard, but it is part of the adventure

This is a must see. You feel like you are in outer space. There is an eerie feeling but beautiful as well. We really enjoyed our visit and would go again.

Be sure to carry water, sunscreen and a hat, even in the mornings it gets really hot. Although it's a popular spot, you should not miss it. We loved the color spectacle of the dunes.

Hi, no.. If you enjoy the desert you will love it
So, there's LOTS of reviews about how amazing this place is and what to do once you reach the park itself. What I'm curious on is how can I get there from Swakopmund and/or Windhoek? Me and a mate are part of a group tour (with Tucan) in May and get 2 nights in Swakopmund with the full day there free... is it feasible to visit the dunes in a day?
