Experience life on a Namibian Farm

We spent one night here on our way to Sossusvlei and it was well worth it. We were the only guests and were royally looked after by Jonathan & the staff.

We did the nature drive on the farm on which the guide was very personable and informative.

The accommodation was lovely as were the farm dogs.

I did the short Kudu Trail at sunrise which was beautiful on Jonathan's recommendation.

Lovely place to stop on the way to Sossusvlei

Our first night was spent at Bullsport, comfortable three hour drive from Windhoek airport.

Very good room, excellent dinner with the family and breakfast the next morning.

Room was better than we had expected, equal to some of the high end lodges, and the food was of very high quality. We had a very good nights rest after our long journey and were well refreshed, ready for the journey ahead.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

I appreciated the difference in being a guest at a farm, where you ate with the family, as opposed to having a lodge at one's disposal. I enjoyed the change, and the chance to take walks.

Interesting, too, to learn about the difficulties of farming in such a harsh landscape. Added an element of variety to my stays.

Feel home at Bullsport Guest Farm

Arriving there , we are suppriced by the nature around the lodge , nice view from the pool and garden. Owners and staff friendly and very helpfull by the choose off an activity. Rooms ( first day family room ( clean but older bathroom ), because they lost key off the original room nr 1 ? ) Second day room nr 1 ( superb ) For us no problem to change from room ( they did all the suitcases to the room , so we could start directly the activity in he early morning 6 o clock.

We have done the walking into the Canyon CuiverTree . Superb ! We asked lunch packet ( all you need is there ) . They bring us to the start point by 4X4 and recieved lots off information about the region ( viewpoints etc ) Thanks

Meals are taken with the owners all together at one table ( where member off the family in a way = nice for us if you are open for these ) As we are horse enthusiast we spend some time with them to talk about it .

Place to keep in mind .

price versus quality = OK

Bullsport Guest Farm review

A family run farm, we shared meals with the owner. The room was comfortable, the food OK. A very quiet place.

A small gripe - the soap/shampoo supplied were in single-portion plastic bags, almost impossible to tear open, especially when under the shower. Why doesn't she (Johanna) just supply a large bottle of soap/shampoo like every other lodge did?

The walking trails were excellent, particularly the Quiver Tree Gorge walk, which required a 2-1/2 hour land rover drive to the start point. The driver was very helpful.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

We enjoyed the evening meals with the Bullsport family and guests around a large table.

We opted to do a self-guided walk up to Bullsport Mountain, which was interesting.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Very friendly and inclusive - be prepared to share your mealtimes with the family and helpers and chat about anything.

It might not be for everyone! However it's a great way to get background on Namibia, the farm, the history, the game management etc. Room was excellent and service was good.

Food was basic and filling (largely game from the farm).

The Quiver tree walk was excellent. The horse riding was good.

A chance to stay on a working farm

The owners have been farming in the area for generations. Dinners are held in the dining room with guests and owners around a large table. The opportunity to chat with them during dinner about every day Namibian issues such as water shortages is something that a hotel stay would not provide, and helped us understand the country and the people far better.

Very impressed to see that a percentage of each night's accommodation charges is passed on to the local Nama community to help with education and training.

The Quiver Tree Gorge drive and walk was excellent - recommended.

Bullsport Guest Farm

We spent our last night in Namibia at Bullsport Guest Farm. This was a very good experience, as it was a very different type of place from any in which we had previously stayed.

We very much appreciated meeting the owners, farm managers and visiting foreign interns and sitting around the dinner table with them. The conversation was very interesting, as we were given another perspective on life in Namibia from people who have been living and farming there for many years.
