“fantastic place for camping”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

The camp site is fantastic, very well equipped and great facilities. We did the hikes which were nice and well marked. The staff is very friendly. We were suprised to find such a place so close to Windhoek airport, it was very convenient as a last night before flying home.

Reviewed 16 September 2013

We have just spent 2 nights camping at the Daan Viljoen Park near Windhoek (1/2 an hour's drive), run by Sun Karros. The camp site has been very nicely redone, with 12 grass sites with palm trees, each with its own braai with swing grid, hand basin with cold water set into a stone working slab, lights and power point (and baboon safe rubbish bin!) There are three new ablution blocks, showers for men and ladies at each end of the camp site and a toilet block in the middle. We would have liked to have at least one toilet in each of the shower blocks. They are beautifully appointed, even rain shower heads, and spotlessly clean. We found all staff, both at the Park reception and the cleaning staff at the camp site very friendly and helpful. If you do not have your own tent, it is possible to have a luxury tent erected, containing a proper bed with linen.

We drove the 6,5 km bush road one morning and saw a large variety of game, including giraffe, eland, zebra, oryx, hartebees & wildebees.

The camp site is close to the swimming pool, which is also beautifully clean, next to the Boma restaurant and a kiosk.

It was a great surprise for us to find so fantastic place to see wild life near Windhoek. Great facilities and fabulous restaurant.
I recommend it to everybody!
The only problem was the incredible cold that we suffered during the night that we spent there.

Wow thank you we are so grateful for the time you spend supplying feedback. Our lodge team really enjoyed your post. Our Namibian winters are harsh especially on camping safaris as desert and semi deserts can be unbearably cold al over the world. But we are happy that you had an overall heart warming stay and hope to see you back soon.

Came to Daan Viljoen to facilitate a two day workshop with a client. Stayed three nights is a chalet
which I found very comfortable. The staff are very firendly and the chef was happy to make me custom vegetarian meals. The facilitation rooms are fantastic and I would recommend this as a venue for corporate breakaways. I even got to see a number of animals on my visit including garaffe .
