Mushara Excellence

A new camp for us and was the completion of our west to east transit of Etosha. It is well located near the Von Linquist Gate and you can even drive to it on tarmac. The tents are very good and the camp facilities are excellent.

We were welcomed by the manager Erasmus and his wife and over the three nights we stayed met some excellent staff who were a pleasure to talk to and who did everything they could to make us comfortable. Eating under the stars was superb and the food the best we had on the whole trip. With hindsight it might have paid us to have had a game drive at the camp to get local knowledge of the animals and best waterholes but having sole use of the car was beneficial in giving us maximum flexibility over what and how much we did.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The room was good, but quite small. They had every amenity including a make up mirror and a travel converter. Wifi at the lodge was excellent. Staff was really nice. Food was very very good. Joe says the best meal in Namibia- -- I vote for Okonjima and Mushara #2.

Very few people staying there. We got there about 3 since we left Etosha so early in the morning because of the last hotel. I had thought they had a water hole, but they didn't. We were comfortable reading in the lodge.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The camp was beautiful and the accommodation well appointed, with lots of attention to detail. Well managed, with friendly efficent staff. For example, we had two large chairs placed on the deck outside the tent, and a smaller one for our son.

Dinner was lovely (the wine was very nice) although we thought it was a bit odd (as it was billed as being a child friendly place) that if you didn't want the set menu for your child you needed to pay extra for a child's meal. It was a fairly challenging meal for a 5 year old - feta and beetroot tart, followed by oryx.

We didn't feel as if we were in the wild in Mushara. There was a fair bit of noise from car engines and people, and not so many birds or animals. We were staying at 4 of the national park camps inside Etosha after Mushara, so didn't go on the game drives or into Etosha during our stay at Mushara. If you only stayed outside Etosha, I think you'd miss out a bit - no being able to walk at night to the waterholes.

Expert Africa comments

Mushara's owner, Marc, responded swiftly to this, and apologized if there had been any misunderstanding with whoever served these travellers.

He clarified that Mushara definitely does not charge extra for a child's dinner, and the camp does offer the option of different meals for children.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Warm and friendly staff and a nice cosy feel to the lodge. Very close to the park gate so is a good alternative to using the park accomodation if you want some personalised service. You would however have to forgo the night viewing at the waterholes. Staff singing after dinner was again good fun.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The Mushara Bush Camp was a welcome stop after the drive through the Etosha Park. It looks like it is also a good base for visiting the northern-east part of Etosha.
The rooms or tents are lovely and have everything you need. We arrived in the late afternoon and so didn't do much. The dining area was beautifully decorated and the food and service were also excellent. There were some families with kids who were well entertained.

Mushara Bush Camp review

This was a lovely place to stay, however our door blew open with the high winds overnight and it was not possible to secure the door latch so that this did not continue to happen, so we had to keep waking up to push the hook fully back down into the catch. We were the only guests to experience this as I heard some other guests mention that their door also flew open over night!

Could I suggest that the management look to have a more reliable method to secure the door?

Mushara Bush Camp beautifully designed

What a lovely place to stay. So much thought has gone into the design of the complex.

Beautiful rooms, the best shower of the trip, and hot water bottles in the bed !

The lounge area is attractive, spacious and comfortable.

The staff were friendly and helpful and very proud of their hotel and the food was superb.

Mushara Bush Camp review

An ideal place to stay at the east end of the park. Beautiful place, and really nice service. Cold, but blankets and log fire provided in the restaurant!

Strongly recommend it as a stopover.

Wonderfully relaxing

Only 3 tents occupied and only 1, very well behaved, child. So we found it very quiet and relaxing but it may not be in the high season. If we returned to Etosha we would spend more time here.

We would particularly like to note that we found Victoria, who appeared to be in charge at the time, a very impressive hostess.
