Mushara Bush Camp review
Excellent camp - beautiful pool and restaurant, very child friendly but lots of adults on their own too. The food was the best we had in Namibia. The game on this side of Etosha was fantastic - we saw lions every time we went out, a leopard, a cheetah, a pack of spotted hyenas, herds of elephants. It couldn't have been a better experience.
We especially loved the buffet meal outside.
Room/tents were great - our only comment - it was very hot and the fans in the tents were ineffectual - they really need ceiling fans.
Stylish and convenient access to Etosha
This camp is set in the bush without open views. It is 10Km from the Von Lindequist gate on the eastern edge of Etosha, so access to the waterholes is good.
There is a beautifully constructed, thatched central area with an elegant décor. The grassed area in front was a favourite grazing area for local wart hogs. One evening, dinner was served at the lantern lit Boma.
The accommodation is well spaced. We were in number 8 (of 16). It was about 200m from the lodge.
Mushara Bush Camp was luxurious
High standard accommodation and welcoming friendly staff.
An excellent early morning game drive into Etosha with a very knowledgeable guide was the highlight.
It had become extremely hot (40C+) by this time and we were very grateful for the air conditioning in our tent - too hot to sit out by the pool in the afternoon
Mushara Bush Camp
Absolutely perfect for exploring the eastern end of Etosha. Situated just outside of the park gates.
Their outdoor BBQ is a real treat.
Smile once in a while it could catch on
only stayed one night good breakfast poor dinner
All the staff seemed to be under strict orders to be as grumpy as they could be if that was the case you can let them know they all passed with flying colours
Mushara Bush Camp review
An interesting one this. Somewhat disconcerted that there was nowhere to lock anything away (even the room) other than a small safe. As we had some fairly expensive camera equipment with us that meant we had to carry everything around with us (even to the restaurant). Maybe worth mentioning that aspect. Maybe that is the situation with all canvas camps.
The central area and restaurant were excellent and the staff were very good, helpful and friendly.
Warthog heaven at Mushara
Having been guided through Etosha for a day and a half at the previous location and even though we had driven through Etosha to get to Mushara we decide to drive ourselves into Etosha this time. Consequently we are unable to comment on the guide services here.
However the rooms and central area were wonderful. The lawn outside the restaurant area was a popular spot for warthogs and any time there were competing males together the lawn got chewed up and repair by the gardener a regular task.
Authentic, down to earth camp
Loved the relaxed nature of the camp. The rooms were more basic, but lovely, characterful and clean.
The setting was authentic as it was not manicured but attractive in a natural setting.
Staff were very good and the singing was lovely. We took a morning walk with a guide for some exercise. It was a slow walk but he gave us a lot of information about the tree and plant life.
Mushara was a pleasant surprise, lovely soft, light airy tented accommodation.
Once again ideally situated for Etosha.
Just a great lodge close to Etosha
The best lodge of our trip. Located just 15 minutes from the east gate of Etosha this is a private lodge set in in bush/woodland which could easily pass as a nature reserve. The main reception\dining area is set under a architecturally striking timber built thatched roof. This covers an open fronted building which houses the dining area, bar, reception area and a small curio shop which sells some quality items at a reasonable price.
The tents\chalets are set in the bush at a little distance from the main reception area. These are well designed private, spacious and modern with integral showers and toilets. There are charging points and a kettle and tea making facilities. There is a safe and even an air horn in case of an emergency, which include insects you don't like apparently!
The food and service in the restaurant was excellent and you can even get a decent vegetarian option. The staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful and the whole place is kept spic and span. After dinner we were entertained by the staff choir which was was of an incredibly high standard.
Unfortunately we did not have chance to go on one of the morning walks due to illness and the lack of a guide. There is nothing to fault here.
