Photography Tips

I waited for the group to pass me up to Bog Daddy to get a good sense of scale in my image. The early morning sun also helps bring more colors to your image.

Travel Information

Visiting Big Daddy Dunes in the Namib Desert, Namibia, offers a spectacular experience of one of the world's tallest dunes. Located within the Namib-Naukluft National Park, the Sesriem entrance is the gateway to the dunes.
The park gate at Sesriem is the main entry point to the dunes. It's typically open from sunrise to sunset, allowing visitors to experience the dunes in the best light conditions.
The entrance fee for Namib-Naukluft National Park is around NAD 100 per person per day for international visitors, and an additional vehicle fee may apply. A 4WD vehicle is highly recommended for visiting Big Daddy Dunes, especially for the last 5 kilometers after reaching the 2x4 parking area. From here, you can walk or use a shuttle service to get to the base of the dunes. Driving a 4WD ensures you can navigate the deep sand safely and enjoy a more flexible schedule. Exploring Big Daddy Dunes provides an unforgettable adventure with stunning views of the vast desert landscape and the surrounding Deadvlei clay pan.
