If you go to the Namib Desert while traveling to Namibia, you won't miss Sossuvlei and its huge dunes. Big Daddy is one of the highest and also the more crowded. Ascents starts from the parking (accessible only with 4WD or, if you don't have, a shuttle).
The view from here is wonderful.
The most cheerful part is the descent to the Dead Vlei salar : 330m running on a 50° smooth sand slope...

Prefer ascension on the morning as it can be extremely hot past 10am.

( It's the altitude above the Dead Vlei as there is no precise map of this constant-changing region.)
