A warm welcome at Mushara Lodge
We had a warm welcome from Erica who greeted us when we arrived and served dinner in the restaurant on our first night.
We were very happy with our rooms. I have an irrational fear of spiders and I was a bit worried about staying in a lodge with a thatched roof - but I didn't see a single one!
The food was good.
We saw kudu and impala wandering around in the grounds outside our lodge, which was lovely. This was a relaxing and comfortable base from which to explore the eastern end of Etosha.
A little luxury
Very comfortable lodge, very spacious and lovely grounds for relaxing.
Meals were excellent and all staff very friendly and efficient. an easy drive into Etosha.
Mushara Lodge review
This was very personal and luxurious, and we spent some of one day just sitting on our verandah relaxing it was so quiet.
The food was very good as was the service, and the wildlife often wander into the area - warthogs join residents by the pool and a small deer was found gazing into my bathroom window one day!
We went on one of the drives with Imelda one of their guides. She found us more wildlife and taught us more about Etosha in all the time we had driven through the park.
The drives are good value - cheaper than those in Etosha and include your entrance fee.
We had a lovely stay at Mushara Lodge, relaxing by the pool in the gardens on our day of arrival and then taking 2 good game drives the next day.
On both evenings the food was excellent and the atmosphere intimate and romantic!!
Mushara Lodge review
Mushara was one of the best that we stayed at... except for the BIG spider in the bathroom.
Accomodation was very good, the public building really spacious and very friendly staff.
The evening dinner out on the terrace great
A bit of luxury
We were made very welcome, everything was explained and then we were taken to our chalet. Our room was very spacious with a veranda to sit out on in comfort at the end of the day. Facilities included a mini bar and tea making facilities with little biscuits.
The evening meals were very good and the breakfast was again excellent with good choice. The only problem was that the clocks had gone forward and we didn't realise which meant we were late to dinner and breakfast, but they didn't mind and just laughed it off (lovely natured staff).
There was a wonderful swimming pool (and we did indulge here), nice sun loungers, sun shades and towels provided, wart hogs on the lawn, ground squirrels running around and Kudus roaming around. Super stay.
Mushara Lodge review
This was conveniently located just outside the east gate of Etosha. When we saw our "room" we couldn't believe it! We had a whole house with two separate bedrooms, three bathrooms and an enormous lounge all to ourselves!
The staff here were all very friendly and welcoming, although meal service was rather slow and the English Christmas carols accompanying supper were a little out of place!.
We enjoyed the pool and it was nice to have warthogs and kudu wandering round the garden.
Lovely quiet relaxing place.
Just outside the east of Etosha, we were here for two nights. We just relaxed having had our fill of game drives by now inc. having self-driven through Etosha. A lovely place in the woods really, well into its own reserve, attractive semi-wild gardens and good sized swimming pool.
Surprised to find a mother and two young warthogs cropping the lawn for an hour or more just next to the main verandah where we ate. An abundance of small squirrels consider the grounds are as much for them as for the guests. Friendly staff who performed some local songs at the end of dinner. Large ensuite bedrooms.
A very luxurious, professionally run lodge
We always look forward to returning to Mushara! Beautifully located just outside Etosha, it is very luxurious with excellent facilities.
Marc was his usual very helpful self and offered us the free services of one of his trainee guides in the park.
Fine dining at Mushara Lodge
This is a wonderful lodge in all respects.
The staff are extremely professional and courteous and the whole place exudes comfort and luxury. We were fortunate to meet a lovely English couple who were staying the same time as us and we had two excellent dinners in their company.
The food was the best we had throughout our trip with imaginative, tasty meals.
