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.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

We really enjoyed our three night stay here and felt it was a privilege to be part of a family concern giving us an insight into different aspects of Namibian life/culture/historical context.

We listened enthralled by Ernst Sauber talking about the problems the farm encounters - foot and mouth/draught/conservation/leopard attacks etc.and of course the future of Namibia in general

The only disappointment was that Katrina could not go on a Horseriding trail as the horses had been moved away from the farm and Johanna Sauber was away for a couple of days Just bad luck !. Johanna was extremely apologetic.

Probably best to let them know in advance if keen to ride

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.
