Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

The reserve is 40,000 hectares of sun-drenched, grass-covered, acacia-dotted hills typical of Namibia's central highlands and, a hop and skip from the country's capital, just aching to be explored.

Sun Karros is a small, comfortable safari lodge in the Daan Viljoen Game Reserve on the edge of a small dam in the Khomas Hochland mountains. Accommodation is in 19 enormous chalets, built in the rondavel style of a traditional hut and coated with the warm colours of Africa.

Air conditioned with en suite bathrooms, private balconies overlooking the dam, satellite TV, mini-bar and luxury beds, the chalets offer the perfect start or end to your African holiday - either to revive the spirits after a long flight or to come down gently out of the glory of the African bush.

The reserve has no dangerous animals so you can stretch your legs at will on several hiking trails that take in the wonderful views, the evocative smells and the great big Namibian skies. Wildlife you're likely to see include giraffe, eland, Hartmann's mountain zebra, kudu, gemsbok, blue wildebeest, klipspringer, baboons and black-backed jackal. Of the 200-plus bird species on record, Namibian endemics include Ruppell's parrot, white- tailed shrike, Monteiro's hornbill and Damara Hornbill if you're very lucky.

The main lodge has a restaurant, bar and swimming pool as well as a curio shop for those last-minute gifts to take home as evidence of your Amazing Namibian Adventure.
