  • We stayed there 2 nights. A magical place, extraordinary, exceptional, amazing ... I loved it. Alone in the world in the dunes. The visit of the cape foxes in the evening at dinner, the awakening with the steenbock and oryx in the dunes. I recommend this place to all nature lovers.

  • Pure adventure! The first 60 km after the park entrance are already surprising, as always orange desert, swap pings. Exciting it will be on the last kilometers to the 4x4 parking lot with your own SUV - blos not get stuck, was our motto. You also have to go to the dune and take water with you!!!! It's exhausting, especially a spot on a transition you run down more than you get up, but it's worth it. The reward is then the run down the 320m high dune - what a fun. At the end, you take off your shoes, let the sand run out and walk back across the Vlei to the parking lot. Please do not send toddlers to the dune.
