Mushara Bush Camp review

Mushara was probably our kids favourite place and it certainly excelled in all areas. The setting and camp are beautiful and it seems much more luxurious than some descriptions we had read before travelling.

The outdoor spaces and pool are beautiful and the camp exudes a sense of peace and tranquility. All staff were exceptionally friendly and very good with kids particularly Viktoria who spent time doing sand art with our kids. The food was probably the best we had on the trip. The warthogs hanging out on the lawn were a great bonus for us on our return from a trip to Etosha.

Only minor negative was that the game drive was a little disappointing but this probably reflects that having spent 2 days driving around Etosha ourselves we had come to realise you don't need a guide to see the wildlife

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

Really enjoyed it here. Reception/restaurant area lovely. Food great.

Friendly service and nice touches such as homemade biscuits in tents as well as tea/coffee and hot water bottles. Very clean. A great stopover or base to enter Etosha from the east gate (although not in the park so wouldn't have the night waterhole experience).

Other than Okaukuejo, some of the best game we saw was at the east Etosha waterholes as we drove through.

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!
