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.

A little luxury at Etosha

This was the disappointment of our trip. The room and lodge were lovely, with fantastic tented accomodation and excellent food, but they were not running any activities and as it had started to rain we couldn't really saty around the pool.

We ended up driving back into Etosha for the day and evening. This let us see more animals and a different part of the park, but it may have been just as well to have stayed at the accomodation that side, inside the park.

Mushara Outpost review

The best experience of the trip. The manager was superb. Everything about this place was excellent plus. We liked the wart hogs and antelopes in the gardens.

One of the drivers changed one of our tyres when we had a puncture.

Warthogs on the lawn

Quite a different experience to other places we stayed.

Very stylish effect somewhat spolit by the warthog poo all over the lawns - though they clearly made some effort to clear it up you had to be careful when by the pool in bare feet - not quite in keeping with the image they were aiming for. The room was lovely (we were in 7) with a verandah perfect for sitting and watching the wildlife go by.

The staff were delightful and the food different and good.

watch out for the dik dik and warthogs

We made the mistake of turning up at Mushara Lodge (which comes first along the road from the park). Perhaps this could be pointed out as it was a quite a way along the private road before we reached the lodge.

Nice elegant dinner. Such a shame that breakfast at 6am was served outdoors on the terrace with the temperature about 10-11oC which literally froze me. The tea was already cold by the time it reached the table served in large wide cups - it would have been better to serve teapots. Needless to say I did not hang about. After 7am once the sun was up it might have been ok.
Sometimes hot was on left and sometimes right in Namibia.

Beautiful tent and elegant bathroom area.

Expert Africa comments

We’re really sorry that these travellers experienced yet another navigation issue finding the right lodge here – especially as such issues seem to have dogged their whole trip.

Marc Pampe, Mushara’s owner, was concerned by this, and commented that when arriving at any of the three entrances to the Mushara properties (Mushara Lodge / Mushara Bush Camp / Mushara Outpost), there’s a large sign board at the gate telling guests exactly where they are, and which entrance/road to use for each particular camp/lodge. We’re very sorry that somehow these travellers must have missed this, or not seen it.
