Dead Valley was one of the highlights of this park. Best views are obviously obtain from the top but be sure to take the easy route as climbing straight up the dune at 16:00 left us with burning feet!

I hiked in from Big Daddy Dune and walked out through the normal path. Photos are best early in the day when it is less crowded and some fantastic shots are to be had closer to the edge of the trees. Note also great views...More

You go to the starting place with 4x4's. There are just a couple of them, so sometimes you have to wait a while before there's place on one for you. When you get there you can choose: walk over a dune or go around. In...More

We went on an overcast day to see Deadvlei, so it wasn't too hot. The contrast between Deadvlei and the surrounding red sand dunes was stunning. It didn't seem real! It was beautiful and I highly recommend making the short trek!

TAKE LOTS OF WATER!! Although it's not far, a mile or so from the parking area, Deadvlei is HOT, over 30C at 9a.m. and 40C by the time we returned before noon. We climbed Big Daddy and came down the dune into the far end...More

I had the privilege of visiting both after a dune climb and first thing in the morning. The different lighting offered different picture opportunities. There is no words to describe the beauty and isolation of deadvlei, where dead trees have been preserved by dry air...More

Awesome trip out to Dead Vlei. While we had our own car we opted for the bus into the area where you walk in to the Dead Vlei. The drive through the sand it not easy - we got in about 50 metres and went...More

I agree with the other posters - hire a car or join tour group. I dont suggest the former if you are not used to driving those roads. If you get stuck or get a puncture, you can be stranded for hours without any help. I... More

There isn't a guide as such. You arrive at the first car park and take a Jeep with a driver the 10 mins through sand to the car park closer to Deadvlei - then you are left on your own !
