THE LODGE

Sun Karros Daan Viljoen was built with an explorer's passion for the great outdoors and a jet-setter's love for peace and tranquility, lazy days whilst having all the creature comforts at their disposal.

Daan Viljoen is a place that nature and wildlife lovers can explore safely on short game drives, 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 adults. The more challenging Rooibos Trail takes hikers along The Augeigas Dam to the eastern highlands.

The Park has no large predators, but 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 as well as the pools around the Park are bird magnets, making Sun Karros Daan Viljoen highly appealing to birdwatchers. Over 200? 300? Sighted species have been recorded. Endemic species include Ruppell’s parrot, White-tailed shrike, Monteiro’s Hornbill, and sometimes also the Damara Hornbill.
