Daan Viljoen Game Reserve
The park and resort is open throughout the year from sunrise to sunset. One of Daan Viljoen's great attractions is that visitors are allowed to walk around the park (unlike Etosha and several other Namibian game parks where you are confined to your vehicle) and there are 2 well marked hiking trails. Mountain biking is also allowed and the park is a popular spot for Windhoek's mountian biking fraternity. There is also a small route for those wishing to do some game viewing from the comfort of their vehicles. Booking in advance, especially in the Namibian holiday season, is advised as residents from the capital city use Daan Viljoen as a welcome break and weekend retreat. Overnight visitors with reserved accommodation may enter up to midnight.
Facilities include a reception complete with an Internet café and Wi-Fi connection. Meals are served in both the Kraal Restaurant and the restaurant at the swimming pool. Both dining areas are wheelchair friendly. Food can be ordered from the 'a la carte' menus. Relax at the restaurant pool-side patio lounges and cool off in either the adult or children's swimming pools. Safe parking, 24hr security, a laundry and room service are provided and a cot, baby beds and high chair are available for families with younger children.
The kiosk, which resembles on old farmhouse, enables guests to stock up for their visit or for their onward journey through Namibia. Beer, wine, ice, fire wood, meat and groceries can be purchased. There are 2 conference centres (30 delegates per room) and 1 of them doubles up as a function room. Up to 300 guests can enjoy that wedding, birthday or anniversary at Daan Viljoen.
