BüllsPort now offers its guests a special experience: a nature tour in a carriage. The tour leads through the dry riverbed of the Tsondab, with its riparian forest of acacia trees, and across the plains sparsely covered with bush, at the foot of the mighty Naukluft Mountains.
The chirping of the birds, the sound of the wind, no disturbing buzz of an engine, but instead the rhythmic rattling of hooves – this is enjoying the environment as nature intended, with a touch of nostalgia. If you are lucky, you will see kudu, baboons and springbok.
The two coach horses are a professional team: Gwain and Monty were trained by well-known horse expert Willem Bezuidenhout on a farm near Okahandja. For more than ten years, they were “working” together at weddings and other special occasions.
Horse lovers might even recognise Gwain and Monty. The two have been involved in several international film productions, including the TV movie “Whispers of the Desert” (German title: “Die Wüstenärztin”), the desert scenes of which were shot partly in Namibia.
