First of all, you will need your own 4x4 or pay $10 per person round trip to get out to the Deadvlei and Big Daddy Dunes. There are frequent shuttles at the end of the road. No reservations or prepayment necessary. They depart and return on an as needed basis. The same shuttle also goes to Soussuvlei. We did not arrive at sunrise but did not feel like this impacted our experience.
We spent about 1 1/2 hours there. We didn't climb all the way to Big Daddy, but got 3/4 of the way there, and ran down. Nice vistas.
We booked two days in our campsite, but after spending 1/2 a day in the area inside the national park, we felt this was enough. It was very windy and hot in October.
