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.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Well designed camp in good location. Very promising outdoor dining experience somewhat disrupted by first rain of the year.

Good rooms but could do with a fridge.

Mushara Bush Camp review

We really loved this place. We had no idea what a bush camp was - but they are luxury tent structures in a bush setting.

The site was beautifully lit and the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent with a barbecue set up outside the second night. really convenient to go back into the east side of Etosha

Mushara Bush Camp review

We loved this lodge - friendly and attentive. Nice pool. Lovely clean rooms with nice showers.

Hot water bottles in bed by the time we arrived back from dinner- what a treat ! Would be fine if using as a base to visit Etosha but otherwise is probably a one-night stopover place.

Real bush experience.

Great place just a few kilometres outside Etosha.

We were allocated Tent 13, which was a LONG walk back to reception! However it was right out in the bush and very private, so it had its advantages! Animals were around the tent during the night (hope they were deer!).

Meal outside round fire on night one (chilly)
Meal inside on night two (much warmer)

Very helpful staff.
