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.

Good stop on returrn journey to Windhoek

Nice spacious rooms. Comfortable stay. The Quiver tree drive and walk was a highlight of our whole trip along with the dunes. Well worth doing although being confronted by a black cobra on the path certainly made for a heart stopping moment!

Communal meals with the family were enjoyable but a little strained for English speakers as the main language was German. Anyone with an equine interest would love it.

Family Guest Farm

Wish we'd had more time here as the walking opportunities looked very good.

Excellent bird watching. Good area for accessing the Namib. Really family run.

Evening meals shared at a big table including family and some staff and good varied home cooked food.

Handy stopover at Bullsport

Beautifully designed comfortable cabins on farm with excellent meals served by friendly staff and hosted by family.

We enjoyed some walks which were well signposted and in beautiful grassy countryside.

Bullsport guest farm

The farm was great, rooms were big and lovely. Meals were lovely and we ate outside with the owners at a communal table.

Very interesting people and glad we got to talk with them about the farm.

We took a tour to the top of quiver tree gorge and hiked down. The hike was harder than we expected and we likely should have been given a more reasonable expectation of the difficulty level.

Expert Africa comments

Bullsport Guest Farm thanked these travellers for taking the time to give their feedback. They were delighted to get an ‘excellent’ rating for most categories.

Bullsport were sorry to find out that the Quiver Tree Hike was harder than the guests had expected. They commented that it is difficult for them to judge the ability of some guests wishing to hike the trail, saying that with some it is very obvious that the hike won’t be suitable, then there are others who they think will enjoy the hike but struggle, whilst some that don’t initially look prepared for the hike come back relaxed and with a big smile. The team at Bullsport try to explain the hike as clearly as possible, and they do advise guests that if they feel the terrain is trickier than expected on the drive to the start, they are welcome to change their minds and return to the lodge. There’s also the option of a short ‘test’ hike to a nearby quiver tree at the edge of the gorge to try before the driver leaves the group to the main hike. Having said that, on the day these guests hiked their usual driver was unwell and so it’s possible that the replacement driver didn’t explain this option to them. Bullsport will ensure he passes on that message to future guests.

Two nights on a farm

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We enjoyed eating our meals with the owners and their other guests.

We learned so much about Namibia and Johanna and Ernst were kind enough to answer all our questions.

We had a very comfortable, family room - it had 2 bedrooms, although there were only two of us.

The meals were excellent. This is a remote location but that made it even more interesting.
