A lovely camp with attentive staff. Great atmosphere and enjoyed watching the warthogs nibbling the grass on the lawns. Food excellent - perfect soufflet!

Mushara Bush Camp review

A friendly reception with good food. It was cold at night and blankets were provided at dinner! I took one to the tent for extra warmth at night.

We again drove ourselves around the Etosha waterholes seeing a great deal of wildlife including DikDik. A much better atmosphere than Okaukuejo.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The best lodge we stayed in.

Very beautiful, nice food, friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Perfect place if you travel with children.

Just a short drive to Etosha east gate.

Canvas luxury

Ideally positioned just outside Von Lidequist Gate Etosha a 10 min ride away.

Under canvas and very comfortable and some interesting animal noises through the night. The culprits arriived on the lawn the next morning keeling to feed in only the way warthogs do.

Another friendly welcome by the staff and among them another well rehearsed choir who entertained us around the evening camp fire and barbeque banquet.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Close to Etosha and good location for an overnight stay before visiting the park. The hotel grounds were pleasant but limited in where one could walk around the grounds, although we did see some wildlife there such as warthog and steenbok. We didn't use a guide for any trips but we spoke at length to one guide who seemed very ignorant.

Food reasonable and wine fairly priced. Rooms very comfortable (hot water bottles!); attentive staff.

Mushara- wonderful!

Our first Etosha camp (after which we went to Halali, Okaukeujo and Ongava) and it did not dissapoint. A beautiful place, great food and very friendly staff. We travelled as a couple and the presence of a young family did not bother us at all (the camp actively welcomes children- but they are kept well entertained with toys and their own play area). The room was lovely- four poster bed, a coffee/tea station stocked up with biscuits. A very relaxing place to come back to after our drives into Etosha.
The Eastern Etosha gate is less than 5 minutes drive away and its a great area to explore. Very different from other areas of Etosha. During our stay there we saw a leopard on the first day (in the morning) and on the second day, a leopard and her two cubs playing by the side of the road (in the evening). Very rare sightings which we were lucky to see.
We were advised that staying at Mushara would be more comfortable than staying at Namutoni (the government camp, within Etosha) and we were advised very well.

This camp was one of our favourite places in our whole trip and we are looking forward to returning!

Mushara Bush Camp review

Everything here was very good indeed. We loved the "bush-tents" which are well spaced out around the grounds for privacy.
The food and service was excellent - only let down by luke warm coffee at breakfast!

Excellent location for access to Etosha.

My only concern here would be that this lodge makes a point of being "child friendly" so visitors should expect more of a family atmosphere rather than peace and quiet. This wasn't a problem for us but anyone wanting total relaxation should be aware.

The scores below are comparative to the other places we stayed.

What they cannot show is the very high level of service the staff deliver, they are superb.

Mushara Bush Camp review

This camp was a great place to stay as a stop over, just outside Etosha. Very attractively designed accomodation, however let down by some tasty but cold food.
