We spent an hour exploring the dunes with a guide. Unfortunately the guide was very controlling and didn't allow us to really enjoy the experience.

during our stay in walvisbay we visisted dune 7. It was very hot and the climb up the dune was very steep. Down at the parking lot you find a lot of rubish. If you go to Sossusvlei skip this dune.

This dune is free to visit and is best in the morning (we came at 08:30 and we're the only ones there). The walk up is pretty easy and the views are gorgeous. Coming down is obviously the exciting part 😂

Climbing up dune 7, the highest dune in the area, is a great experience that gets your heart pumping and rewards you with magnificent views. The only thing that leaves a sad aftertaste is the abundance of litter everywhere! There should be dustbins and signs...More

This is the best dune to climb, you can go up the long side and rest in the shade of a small palm tree about a third of the way up. The weather is moderate (mid 20's), not the mid 30's plus of Sossusvlei area....More

If you like adventures; I recommend that you walk to the top and then come down as fast as you can.....it is an amazing experience among other activities that you can book in the area. Great place for families with kids.

Tall sand dune - incredible views once you get up there. Be prepared for flying sand. Best to go just before sunset or early in the morning when sand is not burning

It is an absolutely amazing experience to sand board or "boogy board' down that dune at enormous speed and fun! To 'boogy board' - buy a piece of hard board the size of a boogy board (at a hard ware store in town), rub the...More

I want to visit Dune 7 from the cruise port on a Sunday in April 2016. Are there taxis available from the cruise port or nearby?

Yes, there will be plenty of taxis. As a tip, the further you go down the taxi line/away from the ship, the cheaper they are willing to go (usually). I'd also recommend negotiating a rate in advance. Hope you have fun!

Try a taxi. Distance is not far. If there for the day, hire a car.
