Eco Awards Namibia
Büllsport Lodge and Farm
Hiking, horse riding and mountain biking in the Naukluft mountains
BüllsPort Lodge & Farm offers its guests to explore the realm of mountain zebras and quiver trees in a completely natural way. On the 14 paths through the 43.4 km² private nature reserve, they leave nothing behind but their foot, hoof or tyre tracks.
The farm drive through the almost 56 km² farm area answers the question of how to keep sheep and horses sustainably on the edge of a desert. Farm operation and guest business finance the measures to maintain the nature reserve in the mountainous part of BüllsPort.
Sustainability is also the top priority when it comes to the guest business. The lodge was deliberately limited to 12 rooms. The two campsites, each with 2 pitches, accommodate a maximum of 10 guests each. It is not for nothing that Eco Awards Namibia has rated the many environmentally friendly measures with 4 out of 5 possible desert flowers since 2018.
In the hands of the Sauber family for decades, BüllsPort turned from a pure cattle and sheep farm to a guest farm with a horse stud in 1993. Meanwhile, guests enjoy the standard of a lodge. The approximately 45 m² rooms with bathroom and separate toilet have air conditioning and a small refrigerator, the lounge offers good and free WiFi.
However, the personal touch has remained: guests can meet their hosts over coffee and cake or during sundowner, and learn a lot about everyday life on a farm and life in Namibia.
Located 230 km from Windhoek, BüllsPort Lodge & Farm is the ideal multi-day stop, also at the beginning or end of a tour from Windhoek through southern Namibia. For travellers coming from South Africa, it is a good stop on the way to the Namibian coast, with a distance of about 280 km to Walvis Bay.
Sesriem is 110 km away. So the Sossusvlei can be visited in a day trip: departure after breakfast, lunch break in the shady Sesriem Canyon and exploration of Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei in the afternoon - when it is less busy!
