A genuinely unique stay at Bullsport.

Loved the location of Bullsport Farm and the genuine feeling of staying on a farm. The horses were beautifully looked after and we enjoyed seeing them in the riding school just in front of the dining area. We also enjoyed our 2 hour hack through the local countryside.

They were good at making the guests mingle and offered lots of activities. As well as the riding we loved the trip to the gorge, which really offered beautiful and varied views all along the walk. We also had a lovely guide who drove us up there and gave us some information about the local wild life.

A very different place to stay. Highly recommended if you want an authentic experience.

Bullsport Guest Farm

Due to problems with our flight, our two night stay was reduced to one night. To be honest, we weren't really sorry. We arrived at 14:45. There was no one around, but eventually we were booked in.

Accommodation was refreshingly cool and comfortable. If you are not into horse riding or energetic walks in hot weather, it's a good place to just chill out and bird watch.

We were made very welcome by Johanna and Ernst at dinner and breakfast where the food was good.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

We wanted to understand the challenges of farming in arid conditions and because both owners and family all sat with guests at diner and breakfast we were able to listen to their commentary of their lives. we felt very welcome on this farm and were able to walk freely over the huge territory they own.

Cake and tea is set out at 16:00 hrs and the backdrop of their mountains and the veld was fantastic.

A wonderful drive and walk down the Naukluft Valley which is a must for any visitor. so much to see with wonderful animals and birds and plants.

Perhaps the only comment was that the food was just OK. But it was the same food that everyone was eating and I loved being all together at the table, but we would certainly return.

Only go for lovely gorge walk

Sadly the owners have lost their sparkle since our previous visit. Employee relations also appeared strained.

The 3hr gorge walk remains spectacular. Only natural flowing water seen in Namibia. Klipspringer and baboon, and leopard tracks.

Good stopover location

A great location as a stopover between Windhoek and the coast - one night is probably enough and the horse riding is recommended.

Food is communally served and home style cooking is provided. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and set in a genuinely desert environment with no neighbours for miles around.

We found the owners exceptionally helpful and friendly, and would recommend Bullsport to anyone looking to break up their journey.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Great for a night but could have happily had another - nice walks. Strongly recommend the quiver tree gorge.

We drove up from the bottom in our own car and spent a couple of hours walking up and down again.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Again very helpful staff. Nice to be able to mix with the owners at meal times (even invited us into their own home to watch the football) Had a good trip up into the mountains followed by a rather long and difficult walk back. Definitely worth breaking the journey for a couple of nights.

Wonderful family operation

In some ways this was our favourite place, small, friendly and somewhere where we could learn more about life in Namibia. We eat with the family and other guests and were involved in the discussion of the days activities on the farm and the current problems they are suffering with the long dry spell they are suffering.

On the afternoon of arrival we went for a short walk round the farm and the next day their guide took us higher into the mountains next to the Naukluft Park where we saw Kudu, Zebra, Klipspringer snake eagle and the local Quiver Trees.

After a couple of hours we were dropped off at the top of Quiver Tree Canyon which we were able to descend on foot to be met at the bottom for a short drive back to the lodge. Here we saw our first Rock Dassies and a large bird called a Hamerkop.

Wonderful experience

We loved the whole experience. Being made so welcome by the family and to learn so much about the country was very special.

We enjoyed eating around the table with the family. We enjoyed the opportunity to walk in the mountains and the gorge.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

This was a delightful first stop on our journey.

Ernst and his family were very welcoming and we had a lovely first night sitting around the fire pit chatting with the other guests.

Sharing meals was a great opportunity to hear about Namibia from people that farm and live there. How tough it has been living with drought.
