Description in other languages:   Sun Karros Daan Viljoen

Amongst the hills and the dam Sun Karros Daan Viljoen, a relaxed but stylish lodge just 20 km from Windhoek, lies in the Daan Viljoen Game Park, among the rugged hills of the Khomas Hochland.
Surrounding the bank of the Augeigas Dam, the lodge consists of stylish chalets, well equipped campsites with optional furbished meru tents (on request).

The grass-covered camping terrace snakes around the Dam with 12 sites and modern upmarket ablutions.
Campers who want to enjoy life under canvas without the need to put up a tent can book a furnished Meru-style tent (Pre-booking only.) The three ablution facilities are of the same standard as the main lodge bathrooms, making this one of the most popular camping destinations.
Out and about in Daan Viljoen Park: Daan Viljoen is a place that nature and wildlife lovers can explore, by means of self-guide, in safety on short game drive, walks and hikes. The 6.5 km game route requires a 4 x 4 vehicle. The 3 km Wag ‘n Bietjie Trail, leading down to The Stengel Dam, is an easy walk for the reasonably fit. The more energetic Rooibos Trail takes hikers along The Augeigas Dam to the eastern highlands is a good work out.
The Park has no large predators, but it is home to baboons, blue wildebeest, springbok, kudu, oryx, Hartmann mountain zebra, giraffe, eland and black-backed jackal. Smaller species include dassies, porcupines and yellow mongooses.
The Augeigas Dam, and pools around the Park, are magnets for birds, so Sun Karros Daan Viljoen is highly recommended for birdwatchers. Over 200 species have been sighted. Endemics species include Ruppell’s parrot, White-tailed shrike and Monteiro’s Hornbill, and there is also the possibility of adding a Damara Hornbill to a bird list.
Gate hours:
06:00 till 24:00 (earlier departures can be arranged with management day prior)
The game park is under management of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
