Büllsport Guestfarm Gallery
Something a little different to the normal Namib Desert lodge options that we offer on Uyaphi.com, an option that offers loads of activities all the while being very reasonably priced and within reach of Sossusvlei and Sesriem.
Accommodation and facilities are more farm-stay than a semi-luxury lodge (obviously as it is a farm-stay), but I was really impressed with the size of the rooms, the hospitality and the location.
Activities are more for the adventurous with horse riding, walking, hiking, mountain biking options available. We took the lazy way out and partook in a 4x4 afternoon adventure to see Rock Arch, and WOW, the views, the 4x4'ing, the short walk, just brilliant and a perfect way to end the day.
Believe it or not, BüllsPort had the fastest WiFi of any of the establishments we stayed at in Namibia so far. And yes, I do test WiFi signals - I am a nerd :)
Can we recommend a stay at Büllsport Guestfarm? Yes, yes, and yes, especially if you are on a budget and want that something different to what most other lodges offer in the area.

All photographs have been taken by us here at Uyaphi.com with the sole purpose of showcasing the lodge and reserve from our point of view.

The Road To Sossusvlei
Once one navigates the main Sesriem entrance gates and enters the national park a pleasant surprise awaits, a tarred road (yes, a tarred road) that extends all the way through to the main parking area near Sossusvlei.
Cape Town To The Kunene River
In November and December of last year (2019), we loaded our Jeep and headed north out of Cape Town, destination Namibia and the Kunene River, her border with Angola.
A couple of thousand kilometres later, we returned, this time, more in love with country than ever.
Windhoek Oktoberfest 2021
On the 25th and 26th of October, the Sports Klub Windhoek will host the 55th edition of the Oktoberfest. Over 5000 people are expected to attend (compared to 1000 in 2010).
Adding a certain local flavour will be the Namibian band Famaz Attak, and there will be long-established activities and games like archery and tree trunk sawing.
Top 5 restaurants in Windhoek
Continuing our series of dining in Africa, we look at Windhoek. More and more visitors are becoming aware of the unique attractions that this country as a safari destination has to offer.
Nowhere is too far to travel in this small (and clean) city of 330,000 but be warned when you go out to eat, vegetarianism is not common!
Best Places To Go In Namibia
The Uyaphi team has compiled a list of the "Best Places to go" which most safari itineraries would include. A different destination from most African safari destinations.
Instead of lush green forests or open savannas, the primary attraction being vast, open deserts interspersed with canyons, mountain ranges, and oasis.
Living With The Himba
In May 2012, we arranged for Uyaphi.Com client Ken Vine from Devon in England to stay with the traditional Himba people in two remote villages in the middle of Kaokoland.
He lived, slept, ate, conversed and photographed these Himba villagers.
