If you happen to be in Walvis Bay then you should definitely visit Dune 7. Whether or not it's the highest dune in the World (probably not) or in Namibia (perhaps) isn't really relevant. It's still good fun to either climb up the dune (which...More

Don’t be fooled... it’s high!! It’s a climb but it only took about 20 min with regular stops , especially the steeper bit towards the top. Carry water with. Thoroughly enjoyable for both young and old.

This is a great for First timers, every time we go the challenge is always the climb. It feels easy at first but three quarters of the way up you start pondering if you should just go back down. However when you reach the top...More

Just getting to Dune 7, the highest desert sand dune in the world, is an experience not to be missed. The Namibian landscape looks like nothing else I have ever seen: barren, desolate and breathtakingly beautiful, it is reminiscent of photos of the Martian landscape....More

Hi yes you can drive there yourself. There is no need for a 4x4 as it can be reached by a sedan car as well. There is place for 4x4 driving if you wish to do so.

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!
