Dana Viljoen was a pleasure , the private sites well managed and maintained , the front desk staff were pleasant and efficient with the exception of an old lady who seemed to be a forced appointment , such a nice place and atmosphere . Well worth... More

Revamped to 5 star status, a great room (if not the best) with game on your porch, great walks, a stunning pool, Draught on tap, and the obvious choice if you have to stay over in Windhoek. No crime! Safe! Small enough to make you feel at home and the best best campsite facility in Namibia!

We came for a lunch where we heard on the radio that this is the place to try! We were only approached after half an hour where we were seated. The drinks took forever and when we placed our food order, after 45min the waiter came and said she lost our food order. We re ordered and waited another hour... More

We selected Daan Viljoen for our mid-year departmental lunch. The drive is relatively near to Windhoek and is ideal to be out of the big city but near enough to sleep at home. Our arrival at the reception was a bit uncomfortable. The lady at reception who was taking our details seemed to be in her own world, was constantly... More

We decided to go out for lunch away from the city, to be in the middle of Nature, but what a disappointment when after paying 225$ per person we thought, well why did we come here? To be honest I was the one who instigated the visit to Daan Viljoen as last year I did a 24 hour mTb relay... More

I went there on Sunday and I was informed at the gate that it was a buffet and its price. When I got there there was no chicken, because it has finished. Food is not supposed to finish in a buffet. It was a buffet with salads and then rice, veggies that were supposed to be cooked but instead they... More

I took a group of 20 people to this game reserve to see wildlife and for lunch. Everyone raved about the lunch. We had people from about 10 different countries who all said that the food was tasty and of excellent quality. We were the only customers and had great service from 3 waitresses. The curries were especially good and... More

We visited The Boma Restaurant 4 times since July 14. We enjoy the outdoors and therefore enjoy an outing to Daan Viljoen. We did the hiking trail a few times, well maintained and a pleasant activity. The 6.5km "game drive" is also alway rewarding. We can unfortunately not say the same about the restaurant, the service and quality of the... More

The refurbishing of Daan Viljoen was well done. The restaurant provides a nice relaxed atmosphere, with average to good food. It's a nice outing for the family to get out of town and away to a bit of nature. The service is good; and the prices for the meals are acceptable for Windhoek-area.
