Mushara Outpost review

Great food and attention to detail all round. Small lodge with very friendly staff in lovely setting. Luxurious bed and and bedding.

More formal atmosphere with other guests compared to other lodges we stayed at. 10km outside park but easily accessible on Tarmac road.

Would recommend.

Mushara Outpost review

A very warm welcome upon arrival. Overall I would say the service was attentive, professional, discrete, but lacked some individualism.

We felt like guest in their house but what a beautiful place it was. The main building was wonderfully decorated with obvious a lot of time and consideration given to the furnishings and decor. The lodge was absolutely spotless with so many little touches. The food was really good and served at exactly the right pace.

The individual rooms reflected the attention in detail in the main building. Because you are on stilts it does get very cold at night . The glass surround shower was unique! We did see quite a few birds and animals from our veranda we guessed they were on their way to the nearby waterhole (not allowed to visit during the evening unfortunately).

Perfect location for Etosha so we were able to get there for opening in the morning come home in the afternoon and return late afternoon til dusk. I would definitely recommend this 'outpost'.

Mushara Outpost review

The Outpost main building is European design and one could imagine Earnest Hemmingway enjoying a sundowner there.

The rooms were very nice, private, and quiet. Meals were delicious.

Fantastic

We were made to feel very special here and loved the privacy that the accommodation gave us. We especially liked the showers. the hot water bottles in our bed were a nice touch.

We didn't do any activities here and although tempted by the swimming pool we saw mosquito larvae and it wasn't as clean as we might have liked. Otherwise though it was a perfect place to stay and sitting around the fire in the evenings and watching the stars was lovely.

Excellent room and food.

Super, luxury accommodation. Lovely staff. V good food.

Regrettably our guided walk was poor - unable to answer questions re flora and fauna and an uninteresting trail.

Mushara Outpost review

The most beautiful accommodation we stayed in during the trip. Rooms are beautiful and main 'house' of the outpost is gorgeous.

Food was fabulous.

Mushara Outpost review

Where to start?
We loved the food (tough to make a choice since the standards were VERY high everywhere we went to but, if I'd have to make a pick, this would be my favorite place to eat from our whole stay).
We really had a good time at the communal table
We loved the style of the place (very tastefully decorated).
Excellent guide and super friendly staff.
We loved the sense of privacy of the place, with the added possibility of taking a drink next to the fireplace: an excellent way to share stories with fellow travellers and/or take in the beautifull Namibian night-sky.
The room was very cozy and the bed was a joy to sleep in.
Wonderful place and can't wait to go back.

Mushara Villa - not Outpost

We made a mistake booking a tent at Mushara Outpost - it was cramped and uncomfortable with no outlook. We contacted the owner, Marc Pampe, who quickly relocated us to one of the two villas at Mushara Lodge. This was wonderful and worth the extra cost.

Highlight here was an eland coming to drink at "our" garden waterhole. We found the drive from the Lodge to the main park long and uninteresting. Our guide here was a driver rather than a guide compared with other camps.

The ratings relate to the Villa, not to Outpost.
