  • We have not gone all the way to the top, that took too long, but what a nice view over the Deadvlei and the rest of the valley here. It is hard to walk up because the big crowds also do not allow you to walk your own pace over the narrow ridge where you can walk through the whole Mulle sand.

  • Great and short hike on the arm of Big Daddy and the down "great" to The Deadvlei is hugely fun...

  • Great beautiful hike, and a fun unreal experience on the way down.
  • Incredible. Accessible to anyone with moderate fitness. Being a runner, I think the effort needed to climb to the top is comparable to a 15km run. Which of course doesn't mean that you can't do the dune if you don't run... because you likely can. Just don't follow the crowds starting to climb the ascent which is closest to the parking lot. Keep to the left instead and start the ascent some 0.5 km away. Saves you at least 20 mins and some efforts, too.
