Beautiful setting

We didn't expect Bullsport to be as pleasant, relaxed and comfortable as it was. Our luxury room was great - simple, but spacious, with comfortable bed, nice bathroom and shower.

The estate itself and the surrounding countryside are beautiful and interesting. I managed to fit in a 2.5 hour horse ride in the morning of departure which I loved. Their horses are lovely and they also have a few very friendly old dogs around.

Although we personally don't like communal dining and were very tired that evening, it was not unpleasant and the food was good. We were glad we could serve ourselves so that we can have the right size portions (in our case small). Staff were pleasant.

I wish we stayed for more than one night as there are great walks in the vicinity.

A great place to say

Good to stay on a working farm and to talk with the owners.

Enjoyed the drive into the mountains and the hike down the gorge.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

This was the highlight of the trip though 3 nights was sufficient.

The activities were interesting, the rooms comfortable and everything was well organised.

Very good value.

Bullsport Guest Farm

Excellent location for walks and many on offer with the Farm.

Meals were excellent with the added bonus of one large communal table eating with the owners giving the ability to learn about their life in Namibia, problems of living in a remote area and being a fabulous way of getting guests to intermingle!!!

Excellent food, friendly staff, spacious accommodation.......and oh those night skies with all those stars!!!!!!

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Lovely introduction to Namibia as it was our first stop out of Windhoek.

Simple but comfortable accommodation. Very friendly owners and helpers. Great home cooked food.
We saw the mountain zebra on one of our walks but only through binoculars.

Our stay wasn't long enough to do any of the guided activities. We did borrow mountain bikes to ride round one of the flat trails which were all well marked.

Friendly family orientated farm stay

As a first drive using gravel roads Bullsport was about the right distance to travel from Windhoek.

It was nice to dine with fellow travellers and our hosts in the evening. The was no choice of menu but what was served was substantial so if the salad was no to ones liking there was more soup.
There was an honesty system on the bar which was a nice touch, everyone had a numbered notebook that corresponded to the number of their accommodation which they logged their alcohol consumption in so the bill could be prepared on leaving day.

There were a number of walks/trails accessible from the farm and a file contained copies of the routes and details of how long and strenuous they were, which could be taken out on each walk. Wildlife was not abundant and as it is classed as bushmeat so any wildlife spots were rare and brief.

On returning to the farm we were inevitably greeted by one or more of the four jack russell dogs which made you feel like part of the family. The pool despite being cool was welcome in the heat

Expert Africa comments

We are delighted that these travellers enjoyed their stay at Bullsport and that they were able to feel like one of the family - the ability to get to know your hosts has long been one of the draws here.

However, to put the low wildlife densities in context - the Naukluft Mountains have been gripped by drought for the last 5 years. As a result Bullsport has been forced to sell almost all of its livestock to protect what little vegetation is left and give the resident wildlife the best chance of survival but despite this, animal numbers have declined. This said, the landscapes remain stunning, and we’ve always through of the walking and hosting as the main draws here. So it’s best to view any wildlife as a nice bonus.
