Mushara Bush Camp review

Outstanding lodge, beautifully decorated.

Fantastic rooms, very secluded and beautifully appointed rooms. Excellent food, surroundings attention to detail, like unexpectedly finding hot water bottles in the bed after dinner. Good swimming pool. Vegetarians well catered for.

Another camp that shouldn't be missed.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Reception, lounge, dining area is stunning. The largest open sided thatched building that we have ever seen.
Makes for a very dramatic place to eat and chat.

Tent was beautiful and very well laid out with many individual touches and thoughtful additions.
Even though the verandha was small it was nice to sit out and hear the birds and animals, or as George can testify, see, as a family of warthogs trotted past him.

Staff were superb and a credit to the owners.

Mushara Bush Camp review

We have no hesitation in recommending Mushara Bush camp. Based a short distance from the eastern gate of the Etosha Park it is well located.

The permanent tents can only be described as luxurious with fantastic large double beds and a lovely shower room at the back. They have the feel of a lodge rather than a tent although it can get a bit cold at night and first thing in the morning. Set in a secluded wood with wildlife close by, Springboks coming right up to the entrance, it was one of the favourite places of our holiday.

The food and service was amazing. The food was the best of the holiday, the vegetarians had a wide choice (it is recommended that you remind them of any dietary requests when arriving as they cook to order). The staff made a real effort, we had a barbeque outside surrounding by a big open fire on the first night and all the staff joined in when singing traditional Namibian songs on the other night.

Our one small criticism is that we although had lodges 8 and 9, they were a long way apart compared to other lodges which were opposite each other. Our children are reasonably hardy and old enough (13 and 15) to stay in their own tent but felt uncomfortable on the first night so we had an adult and child in each tent. It maybe worth emphasising at the booking that you would like to be as close together as possible.

Mushara Bush Camp review

We loved this place - the tented feeling and the care with which it was run.

The main communal area was a highlight, with welcoming fires and great food, and the tented rooms a delight. Lovely touches such as finding hot water bottles in our beds at night.

Mushara Bush Camp review

A delightful camp. The main building is attractive and open but has tented sides pulled down for evening in winter, which makes it cosy, especially with blankets to put over knees. Food is very good.

Staff are welcoming. Warthogs are often on the lawn and dik-diks can be seen in the grounds.

In winter, the tents can be rather cold at night so a morning shower can be bracing! The beds however are warm and comfortable, with hot water bottles put in before bed.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Only 10 minutes from the Von Linquist Gate. We stayed here as Expert Africa had recently visited Namutomi Camp where we had originally booked and found there to be issues. Following their concerns for our comfort and safety, we were moved to Mushara, less than 2 weeks prior to travelling.

This appears to have been a very good decision - we did pop in to Namutomi to look around and found a real mess of a building site. Mushara was very pleasant - wonderful staff (Vicktoria looked after us extremely well from arrival to check out the next morning), excellent food and good rooms. We would certainly recommend this as a good place to stay on the east side of Etosha.

Mushara Bush Camp

This was just an overnight stop but very pleasant. We were as usual a long way from reception and dinner. Still not a problem.

Dinner was excellent and staff lovely. We had hot water bottles in the beds! A rare treat as it was very cold at night.

Good camp, but away from park gate

Excellent decor in the main area and chalets were clean and well maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff.

For wildlife photographers it would be better to stay within the park as you will get additional viewing time at sunrise and sunset.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The comfiest bed I have ever slept in! Situated just outside the Von Lindequist gate on the eastern side of Etosha this place was a delight.

The attention to detail, second to none. When we returned from the evening meal we found our bush tent all set up for the night and they had even put hot water bottles in the bed to warm them up. The tents were very clean and equipped with everything you needed and more, including tea and shortbread biscuits!!

We only stayed here as Namutoni was under restoration, but it was truly lovely and very relaxing after a long days drive. Evening drinks were very reasonably priced here. A delight!
