Beautiful accommodation

My daughter and mines favourite accommodation , beautiful and tranquil interiors although we sneakily looked at their other lodge down the road and would probably like to try there next time !

Evening meals were lovely and set in beautiful style and atmosphere , very small numbers compared to the larger places we had stayed .
Kids loved swimming here , and great access to the park . Staff very helpful and professional although perhaps a little reserved , we would have easily stayed here an extra night .

Mushara Bush Camp review

An interesting experience but not my favourite accommodation, I think I am too old to really appreciate tents and it was much more like camping than I expected. A long walk to our tent from the restaurant. This camp would probably be more appreciated by people with children.

Having said that the staff were delightful, the swimming pool lovely, and the main restaurant area and camp fire in the evening was really good. The food here was also excellent, as was the service. The wart hog lawnmowers were a huge success and loved by everyone.

Boutique meets bush

This camp is conveniently located about 10 minutes drive from the entrance to Etosha. Although presented as a bush camp, it actually had the feel and atmosphere of a boutique hotel, complete with colour coordinated mosquito nets in our tents.

The tents themselves were exceptionally well-appointed and the main buildings were beautifully designed. The place lacked a little in warmth however, with the staff appearing to be slightly hassled and over-stretched. Consequently, the service at the restaurant and barbecue was rather slow. It was nice being surrounded by bush and the tents were very well spaced apart for privacy.

Mushara bush camp

I loved the location of the tents at the bush camp, it was great being back in the trees. We had kudu and impala come right by our tent. Even though we had other tents nearby it felt like were alone.

The staff were not outgoingly friendly but once we talked to them they would become more outgoing and friendly. Again, we were used to the staff the Wolwedans who had completely spoiled us. It would have been nice for the staff to give us a smile and say hello without us having to say it first.

The food was excellent and it was nice having dinner/BBQ one night in the courtyard.

The only negative experience (more like a minor annoyance) had had nothing to do with the staff or the camp, it was a family with ill-behaved small children. While we were trying to enough a quite dinner, the kids were running all over the dining room and screaming. There is nothing anyone could have done about this (except maybe better parenting!). I didn't expect to have such small children at a camp that seemed more adult then family-like.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Tents are quite hot. Great swimming pool. Very tasteful furniture in the communal area.
Not the best guide, but adequate.

Checking out took a long time because the CC terminal was not working even after many attempts. Eventually we had to drive to their sister camp, the Outpost to pay. Even here we had to pay with a different card.

A lovely stay outside the park

Mushara was again a repeat request, and is lovely. We had a lovely welcome as repeat guests.

The staff are superb, service excellent.

Food very good, we had 2 alfresco dinners & 1 in the beautiful dining room.

Rooms are lovely.

We did 2 guided safari's, and were lucky to see lots of animals. The guide was very knowledgeable.

Ensure that the flaps are done up tight!

The main part of the camp is lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The staff bought out a birthday cake for a guest and entertained us all with their singing-very talented.
vegetarians; a nice meal the first night and they catered for us on the second night when there was a BBQ. The tables were laid out in a clearing and the area looked good with lanterns on all the tables.

The first night was very cold and windy and I could feel the draughts coming into the tent. All the canvas flaps were making a tremendous noise in the wind and I thought that the tent would disappear over our heads!
There is a mesh window on the wall of the shower and I decided it was too cold to go in there! The second night was less windy and we went around the outside of the tent to ensure that the flaps that we could reach were zipped up tight.

I appreciate that the wild life can't be controlled but the ants were everywhere-including in the shower. Don't take any food into the tent.

We enjoyed the game drive that we took into Etosha from the camp and had a very beautiful sun set behind us as we returned to the camp.
