Great walks at Bullsport Guest Farm

Great spacious, well -equiped chalets in the grounds of this working farm. Meals are taken with the family around the communal dining table. The evening meal we had was pasta with small meatballs (I hate to imagine how big "large meatballs" would be as the small were fist-sized!), which was very tasty. Staff and owners were very friendly and efficient and happy to offer advise and pass on information about farming and running a business in Namibia.

They offer guided or self -guided walks on their farm, we were only staying one night on our way to the Namib but did manage a short walk on the morning we left, lots of amazing birds and the gardens are attractive especially the cactus area.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Six recently completed rooms have not received the mention they deserve. They are imaginatively designed, spacious and airy with private porch; bed-sitting room; extensive luggage stowage area; dressing area; huge bath with double-sinks and an open walk-in shower sufficient for three to four adults (we imagine).

Oh, yes. After a dusty 5-hour hike, the cold swimming pool is sublime.

A real farm, with excellent hiking

The new rooms are lovely---very spacious and well-appointed (with superb reading lights!). The "homestay" atmosphere, with the family-style meals in which the hosts take part, was quite pleasant. The walking in the Naukluft Mountains and on the farm was very enjoyable.

For a group making a clockwise loop trip beginning in Windhoek, I might suggest this as a good first stop.

a working farm with excellent facilities

A very welcoming place with fantastic scenery and walks. We opted to go on the Quiver Tree gorge walk which included a scenic game drive. We were shown great views and lots of animals. Strongly recommend to others.

The food was in the main dining room and the hosts ate with us. Excellent food.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

A good place to stay with lovely home cooking in the evenings. The walking and horse riding options were good especially the Olive Tree Walk.

We did have some concerns as the pool was not as clean as other places and we did witness one of the dogs doing its 'business' near the pool, not very savoury!

Expert Africa comments

Johanna and Ernst, the owners of Bullsport, take great pride in their property and have responded very proactively to this feedback. They were delighted to hear that these travellers enjoyed the food and activities here but were sorry that a couple of points slightly marred their stay. They have apologized for the pool looking dirty and that the dogs were roaming near the pool. Unfortunately, due recent to high winds, a lot of dust had got into the pool – this has now been cleaned and the pool returns to being blue. Johanna and Ernst have also informed us that they have now finished their own private garden which is fenced in, so the dogs run around in there as opposed to on the lawn by the pool.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

A real working farm with guest facilities as one of the income streams.

Rooms designed with a lot of concrete for fittings and furniture which works well both in appearance and function. Building works during our stay caused only minimal inconvenience.

Food pretty good with a germanic/african feel, such as zebra goulash! Owners helpful and pleasant but staff not the most forthcoming.

Some excellent walking, both guided and using maps provided by the ranch. Horseriding involved good, well schooled animals and interesting routes.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Our hosts were fantastic and made us very welcome. It was nice that they ate with the guests as we got to know them and they were very good at getting people to mix together.

We had one of the new rooms that were completed this year and it had very comfortable beds with great duvets. Spacious rooms, sofa and 2 armchairs, a huge bathroom and a long, wide shelf to put bags on, if only all places had that. Very tastefully finished with a very nice colour scheme. The best we stayed in in Namibia.

We did a 4 hour walk on their property called the Quiver Tree Walk. The map and instructions we were given were very clear and easy to follow. It was most enjoyable.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

A lovely place to start with, perfect distance from Windhoek to travel on day one after the overnight flight.

Very cold and we needed the heaters but were fine once in bed. We were so excited to find zebra on the dinner menu. The biggest surprise was that it was pitch black by 6pm! Yes we should have realised as it was winter.

The next day we did the self guided zebra walk which was enjoyed by all before leaving the next day, we saw plenty of zebra and baboons. We would have been quite happy to have spent a 2nd night there.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Location in the mountains made it an excellent base for walks even though we only managed the shorter ones. Just a few minutes from the farm ensured you were in a peaceful wilderness with amazing views and some close encounters with birds and animals. Horse riding also added to the experience - lovely well trained horses and a very knowledgeable guide.

The nights were very cold when we were there and we really appreciated the heaters in the lovely new rooms - beautifully designed and with loads of space.

It was lovely to start our trip as part of a family on the farm and find out about Namibia and the life there - Johanna had an amazing ability to mix people of different nationalities around her dinner table and manage to keep the conversations flowing in several languages! Excellent food and lovely cakes every afternoon.

Thanks too for the prompt and helpful puncture repair - in the end it was the only one of the trip but to know they could be fixed so easily made us feel more secure as we battled the roads in our 'bus' - not a good substitute for a 4x4 on those roads.
