Quad biking into the sunset
Apr 2021 • Friends
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

Dune 7 a surprise
May 2019
Lovely clean sand moving if windy (nor when we visited). Quite a climb and worth a visit. We visited in Jan 2019.

Extraordinary Experience
Jan 2020
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.

I made it!

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.

Climbing Dune 7
Jan 2020
Be prepared to get lots of sand in your shoes. If it is not too hot, maybe go barefoot and you will have better traction climbing the dune.

Amazing views...with a good work out

A really great and easily accessible place.
The dune is deceivingly high...and 'climbing' up the dune...is not for the faint hearted...but well worth the 10-15 min cardiac workout 😅

Climbing dune 7 is always a thrilling experience
Dec 2019
Please do not climb Dune 7 between 11,30 and 16.00, because the dune sand is very hot and it is difficult to climb

Dune 7 Walvis Bay Namibia
Dec 2019 • Family
The Dune 7 in Walvis Bay , Namibia is a wonder. The expansive swathed of high sand dunes just adjacent and parallel to the Atlantic Ocean coastline is a convergrnce of two extremes -the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert. The two ecosystems create a cool environment under an otherwise scorching desert sun. Climbing the dune to the peak is no mean task, but watching 7 year olds do it clearly is an inspiration to try, soldier on and conquer .. I did. I met friends from Iceland at the peak. Yes, people from Iceland at the peak of a Namib desert dune! It was an experience to behold. There is no need at all to use any travel agent for this adventure. The Dune 7 is straight forward. Drive yourself there or simply take taxi. No fee is charged at the site .. Namibian Govt is clearly leaving money on the table. However next to the Dune 7 is the Dune 7 adventure.The only facility at the site where one can enjoy very good meals and cold drinks, catch up with friends via free WiFi.. take a shower , do quad bike rides to the expansive desert and the dunes. This is no doubt , the Namibia's ' great pyramids'.

Beautiful view

Challenging with views worth the climb.
Very clean local attraction.

I wouldn’t go if I’m on a solo travel. There’s no security.

Awe inspiring
Jan 2019
This was my first visit to a real desert. The different shades of sand was fascinating as was watching all the able-bodied climb the dune. We had a lovely picnic thanks to Red Dune Safaris. I knocked 1 star off for the toilet facilities which were awful. Our guide persuaded the bar manager to let us use their toilets instead. We were treated to dancing and singing by ladies from a Namibian tribe before we left. They really added to the atmosphere and made our day complete.
