Sossusvlei/ Dead Pan/ Big Daddy Dune – can we drive ourselves?

Let’s start by explaining that to reach these highlights, once entering the Sesriem Gate, you will have to drive roughly 60km on tarred roads inside the park. It’s only the last 4-5 kilometres into the dunes that requires driving in really heavy sand for which you will need a 4x4.  If you are confident in driving in deep sand, by 4-wheel-drive, then by all means go ahead, if not, you can leave your car safely in the parking area and take the shuttle in and back again. Walking is an option too if you're up for it. It's quite a stroll. Alternatively, why not make the most of your experience and join a guided Sossusvlei excursion with the lodge. Not only will you not have to worry about getting stuck in any sand, but you’ll also receive first-hand knowledge from the guide, peace of mind on where to go and you’ll be shown the best places you don’t want to miss.
