Bullsport Guest Farm review

Because of our flight delay we were only able to stay at Bullsport for one night, but actually that proved to be enough. It is a useful stop off on what otherwise would have been a long drive to our next destination. Because our visit was curtailed we were very kindly offered an afternoon trip to the Quiver Tree Gorge for just the 2 of us. We were driven there and escorted by our excellent guide David, and felt we learnt so much more than if we had done the hike on our own, which is what usually happens. He pointed out so many interesting features regarding plant life, geology, animals and birds.

The accommodation at Bullsport is quite simple, but spacious and comfortable. The meals were fine but they have a system of allotting you tables which wasn't explained and we kept getting moved around.

Lovely family atmosphere at Bullsport

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Bullsport.

We particularly enjoyed the family atmosphere where we were greeted by Jonathon and his dad who also joined us for our evening meal.

We didn't take part in any of the organised activities but enjoyed walking along the well sign posted trails around the estate and enjoyed the views as well, as seeing some "plains game" on the way.

Good walking base

We only had 1 night here but would have liked 2.

Well ordered farm with a small swimming pool and large lounge area in the farmhouse to si read, drink, wifi etc. The owners were friendly, lovely dinner outside that included zebra and helpful staff.

Several self guided walks and we did one after breakfast before leaving. Horse riding options, even for beginners, that I would try if we returned

Very homely and welcoming stay

This was a very homely and relaxed place to stop at. On both evenings we sat outside for dinner with our hosts and enjoyed excellent food and company.

We walked one of their trails on our own in the morning and in the afternoon we were taken to Quiver Gorge and walked about half of the way up with a one of the staff. This was not on their list of activities but when we said that we didn't want to do the whole of the trail from the top the owners offered to do this for us. The Quiver trees, Baobabs and other sights in the gorge were stunning.

Homely farm for a short stay

We loved the location of Bullsport Guest Farm and managed to do some walking in the beautiful surroundings during our short stay (they provide information about guided walks from the farm).

Our room was spacious, clean and quite basic, providing everything we needed for just one night. We enjoyed the communal meal in the evening, when the owners and their team joined us and were able to give us an insight into what it is like to live and work near the Naukluft Mountains.

We would certainly recommend Bullsport Guest Farm for a short stay, especially if you like walking or horse riding.

Fascinating window into a working farm

We really enjoyed the farm drive and the chance to learn about the practical and political issues involved with running a large farm in very challenging conditions. Our visit gave us insights into the difficulties of raising stock in a very arid area. It provided a very good introduction to Namibia.

I also enjoyed the chance to wander by myself over the farm along the suggested trails, looking at birds. We liked the chance to meet interesting people at dinner and enjoyed the food.

The room was simple, the bed very comfortable.

It made a very good stopping off point on our way from Windhoek to Sesriem.

Great walks and location - Bullsport Farm

Beautiful location at the foot of the Naukluft mountains. Very large, very comfortable and well designed rooms.

Family are very welcoming and we loved the communal dinners (delicious - as were the afternoon teas..), with the chance to find out more about farming and horses in Namibia. Added bonus of the canine members of the family who are are welcoming too!

There are a number of well defined walks that are a perfect antidote to the first day of driving on Namibia's gravel roads!

Guided walk to the Quivertree Gorge was super - our guide spotted many animals and birds (Hartmann's zebra and black eagles) which we would never have seen.

Only issue was the map from Expert Africa indicated that the farm was located north on the road from Reheboth. It's just south ;-)

Bullsport Guest Farm review

We enjoyed our time at Bullsport. The accomodations were clean and fine. The food was fine as well -- better than what we had at the govt lodges and twyfelfontain but not as good as that in most of the other private lodges.

We enjoyed an afternoon hike in the hills behind Bullsport and had a great hike the following day on the 10 km Olive trails in Naukluft park. Johanna is a character and a great host. She gave us some good leads and advice. They run a bit of tight ship there - there was only one dispenser of liquid soap that we had to keep moving between the shower room and toilet room, and when we asked for a bar of soap they steered us to the farm store (which was closed).

We were also asked about the length of the shower time in our kids room -- they had taken a series of showers in a row. Anyway, these were minor points that did not undercut a satisfying stay. I would just note that if you're not a horse rider, there isn't a lot to do on the farm. As with other pools during our stay, the one here wasn't heated and too cold in August for more than a very quick dip.

Because of the drought over the past several years there was also almost no wildlife. Hiking is the only real option, and for us that worked well because our family enjoys hiking.

Traditional guesthouse, Bullsport

We had a lovely walk on our own from Bullsport accompanied by two of their dogs!

The staff at Bullsport was friendly but in comparison to both Hoodia and Corona, the accommodation, and the food were quite basic. It had a very German feel to it.

Great Gorge walk at Bullsport

The staff and dogs were very friendly, we were glad to be able to walk on arrival as the journey had been a long time in the car. The next day we took the Gorge trip and had a very exciting ride to the plateau and a 3hour walk by our selves through the gorge.

The accommodation was homely, the room was quite basic but large. The communal lounge was comfortable and the jack russells were great fun to watch playing.

The communal dinner was very good.
