"Great walks and location - Bullsport Farm"
Family are very welcoming and we loved the communal dinners (delicious - as were the afternoon teas..), with the chance to find out more about farming and horses in Namibia. Added bonus of the canine members of the family who are are welcoming too!
There are a number of well defined walks that are a perfect antidote to the first day of driving on Namibia's gravel roads!
Guided walk to the Quivertree Gorge was super - our guide spotted many animals and birds (Hartmann's zebra and black eagles) which we would never have seen.
Only issue was the map from Expert Africa indicated that the farm was located north on the road from Reheboth. It's just south ;-)" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
"Bullsport Guest Farm review"
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." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Traditional guesthouse, Bullsport"
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. " See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia
"Great Gorge walk at Bullsport"
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." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Good stop on returrn journey to Windhoek"
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." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia

"Bullsport guest farm"
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." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia
