Particulatly well set-up for families

Of all the places we stayed, this was probably our least favourite. This is more a positive reflection on the other lodges rather than a negative assessment of Mushara. The two main things we missed were (1) a view, as we had been hugely spoilt in all of the other places we stayed and (2) qthe level of warmth and service we experienced in other lodges - particularly on check-in. The staff were not unfriendly, but were a little stand-offish and less effusive than elsewhere.

The lodge and the tented rooms are all very stylishly decorated and thoughtfully equipped. However the tent got very hot during our stay (November) which did not make for a comfortable night's sleep, even with the fan that was provided. I would imagine the rooms would have been a lot more comfortable between May - September.

We found the guided game drive into Etosha a bit disappointing compared to other game drives elsewhere as the guide did not seem very engaged or interested in telling us about the wildlife and seemed to prefer chatting with his friends on the radio. Also, due to the distance of the lodge from Namutoni, we lost some time getting to/from the park.

Mushara Bush Camp review

This is a newish camp with an impressive open reception, lounge, dining area and smart, if a little small, well equipped tents.

We only stayed one night and the camp was full which is perhaps why service at dinner was a bit slow but the quality of the food and enthusiastic staff singing and dancing made it well worth the wait.

Mushara Bush Camp review

During our stay we had dinner in the open air. The atmosphere was great till it suddenly started raining and lightning. The staff obviously wasn't prepared. But they improvised so that we, partly could continue our dinner in the main lodge.

Our advise: keep on serving dinner in the open air, unless rain is expected.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The tents have been upgraded since our last time here (2011) and there's a lot more room in the tents.

The atmosphere in the camp is really great.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Mushara made a good base just outside of Etosha. We had a lovely evening meal in the boma.

Also took a guided trip back into Etosha which we enjoyed.

Room was clean and fresh.

An enjoyable luxury camp

Our tent was simple but very comfortable, the central facilities were very attractive and the food was very good - both in the dining area and the boma.

Unfortunately we could not take advantage of the luxury facilities as we left each morning at 6.45am to go to Etosha and only returned after dark.

Lovely camp!

Mushara Bush Camp was a wonderful place to spend two nights or even more if time allows.

It is the height of comfort and they have thought of every detail to make for a fantastic stay. We had a lovely supper in the Boma and the food was delicious. The custom made ensuite tents are very well appointed and convenient with a very comfortable bed.

We had a very enjoyable stay.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Friendly welcome, good service, well designed, comfortable tents, good food. We arrived around 5pm and left before eight the next morning so can’t really comment further.

Activities were available and the staff were keen to explain them to us, but we had no time.

Great feel to the place

Lovely staff, great atmosphere and possibly one evening meal that was the best of our trip! We also dined underneath the stars in the Boma. We would recommend Mushara to anyone and particularly those taking younger children.

Room was a tent plus walled rear area accommodating the WC and shower. Another place where hot water bottles were put in our beds!

Warthogs on the lawn - what more could you ask for!

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.
