Highlights of Namibia

Daan Viljoen Game Park

Scroll

Located around 20km from Windhoek in the Khomas Hochland mountains, the Daan Viljoen Game Park makes for a worthwhile day trip. There is a nature drive but also walking trails that wind through highland savannah for a chance to spot diverse game such as mountain zebra, eland, springbok wildebeest, gemsbok, kudu, red hartebeest, impala, steenbok and klipspringer as well as baboons and dassies (rock hyrax). The area is renowned for its birding, with around 200 species and several endemics to this area. Some birds of Daan Viljoen include the Damara rockjumber (or rockrunner), Montiero’s hornbill, Rüppel’s parrot and white-tailed shrike.

There is simple bungalow accommodation and a basic campsite at Daan Viljoen, based around a reservoir, but you may also visit from more comfortable accommodation options in Windhoek.
