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.

Mushara Lodge review

We were made to feel very welcome here - not just by receptionists and management, but by all staff we met. The whole experience was sharp contrast with Waterberg Plateau Lodge.

We chose Mushara as a base for visiting Eastern Etosha, and for this it was excellently placed.

Rooms were well-equipped and very spacious - not luxurious but clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you could reasonably ask for - backed by the very positive attitude of staff, and good communal facilities (pool, sitting areas).

We would unhesitatingly stay there again, and would recommend it to even fussy friends.

Mushara Lodge review

After the rather basic food at Okaukuejo Restcamp it was lovely to have quality food and attentive service at this beautiful lodge just outside Etosha. You could stay here and visit the park.

We had stayed in the park so went to Tsumeb which was a small town with banks, shops and a few museums. Would recommend the lodge - lovely visit.

Ideally situated for East Etosha

The Lodge is ideally located a short drive from the eastern gate of Etosha and we spent a very pleasant 2 nights here. The staff were very friendly and welcoming throughout and both food and service was of a high standard.

Rooms were comfortable and apart from the bathroom in need of some updating, were stylish and modern. The Lodge does offer game drives into the park but we decided to self drive.
