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.

Bullsport Guest Farm review

We loved our four-day stay at Bullsport, and while I've marked Food and Activities below as good, I would say they were very good.

Johanna, Ernst and Jonathan were incredibly welcoming, they couldn't do enough for you and we very much appreciated their local knowledge and entertaining stories re life in Namibia and the challenges they face living on a farm. The location is stunning, and we loved going for walks on their land in the afternoon, and especially the hike through Quiver Tree Gorge. Horse-riding was also fun and my son loved all the dogs. Rooms were comfortable and very clean and service overall was excellent.

We hope to return one day.

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.

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

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.

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.
