Bullsport Guest Farm review

Very comfortable and spacious.
Good walking trails well marked. (we did not participate in any other 'activity')

Slightly non plussed at the 'additional charges' itemisation, even for 'afternoon tea/cake', which tended to spoil atmosphere.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Bullsport was ideal as a first stop as we drove straight from the airport. After a tiring journey It would have been nice to be greeted with a cold drink whilst listening to the arrival information (it was not the owners who met us on arrival).

We very much enjoyed being able to do some walking on our own. We feel that maybe the owners should consider charging a little more in order to pamper their guests (tea and coffee during the day and higher quality toiletries...) We were rested when we left and felt ready to discover Namibia.

Another nice welcome. Friendly personal service. Especially enjoyed "communal" dining with hosts and other guests. Enjoyed some of the many hiking trails.

Friendly Bullsport

We very much enjoyed our three nights here. Although the rooms are basic, they are clean and functional. The cost to stay here is also less that other lodges to reflect this. Ernst and Joanna are excellent hosts. We enjoyed their humour and warmth. This is an excellent location if you enjoy walking or horse riding, which is why we chose to stay for three nights. Ernst and Joanna will readily offer useful and informative advice on the area. The quiver trail is to be highly recommended as a good way to see the mountains, zebra and for an enjoyable walk.

The food is excellent and plentiful. Although it is a set menu, Joanna will do her best to accommodate something different. Sitting with other guests as well as our hosts at brekfast and for the evening meal allowed everyone to socialise and discuss their plans. We met some very interesting people and for us this meal time arrangement was a real strength of Bullsport.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

About the right distance to drive after an o/night flight, Bullsport is in many ways the ideal first stop-over in Namibia. The welcome from Johanna and Ernst is warm and friendly; the food probably the best we encountered; the opportunity to discuss Namibian history, farming and conservation, education, politics, etc., etc. with the family over and after dinner both a privilege and a sound briefing for the rest of the trip.

The game/farm drives with Ernst were interesting and instructive and the hike down Quivertree well worth while - even if a bit demanding for septuagenarians! Bullsport is also ideally situated for the Naucluft and we were able to sample Waterkloof en route to Kulala.

Accommodation was, as outlined, fairly basic but would, in normal circumstances, have been perfectly adequate. At minus 4 degrees, even with a butane heater going full blast we were not comfortable - and there was no heat at all in the bathrooms. Hot water bottles, which we met elsewhere, would have been some help! Likewise, temperature accentuated by a significant wind chill factor, the edge was very much taken off the latter stages of the afternoon and early stages of the morning drives.

We comment later on pre-tour kit advice, but inadequacy of cabins to cope with conditions which we were told were not abnormal pulls down our overall rating

Great self-guided walks at Bullsport

This is a family-run, German-speaking guest farm. Most of the other guests here were German. However, you still manage with English no problem.

Our room was simply furnished but clean. The food was good, with a convivial atmosphere in the evenings (you eat with the family). They have a huge area of land that includes part of the Namib Naukluft mountain range. What we appreciated most here was the walking trails, the family have gone to the trouble of making and mapping a variety of walking trails, all setting out from the guest farm. They also provide descriptions of these routes in various languages, including French. As keen walkers we were quite impressed. However, we found the markings on the trails were not always easy to follow so a little experience and good sense of direction is advisable, especially on the longer trails!

Needless to say, always make sure you're well back before dark. We visited the local caves on one of our walks and were convinced we found a couple of stone spearheads! We did the Quivertree gorge walk at this farm and it was truly spectacular. We saw Klipspringer, Rock Dassies and Baboons here, as well as of course the famous Quiver Trees. The whole gorge was just bursting with life and since this gorge is on the farm's property, we were the only people for miles around. What an experience!
