Very poor management

It's a working farm that relies on paying guests.

NB Offers mainly hiking and horses. The Quiver Tree hike is a real test and to be done very carefully but well worth it.

The facilities, kitchen staff and guides are great but if the owners, who were absent on our 2 nights, really want the communal supper to be enjoyable, they need to train their middle management to be able to converse.

The dogs, however, are very amusing and entertaining!

Expert Africa comments

We have passed the feedback to the owners Ernst and Johanna, and while delighted that they enjoyed the activities they were most apologetic about their dinner experience.

They explained that they are rarely both away at the same time when they have guests staying and that whenever possible they try to host guests themselves, however on this occasion it was unavoidable. They have now addressed the issues with the manager in question.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

At first sight a bit alarmed by the orange and lime green paintwork, but warm and welcoming service and comfortable rooms soon put paid to that. Really great to sit down to dinner with husband and wife owners and getting an insight into the challenges and joys of living in the area.

No real rain for seven years means farming has ground to a halt, although we did see a healthy herd of cattle which surprisingly were able to find nourishment in the mountains.

Excellent walk in the mountains with a very good guide. Bereft of wildlife however. Saw two rock eagles, skittish hyraxes, guinea fowl, squirrels

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.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

Took walks and one game drive with young man, Jonathon, who worked there but was actually raised on a nearby local farm. Great information about farming/ranching in Namibia.
Hiked the Quivertree Gorge Trail, over 5KM, also went horseback riding.

Food was good.

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!!!!!!
