"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 16 Jan 2024
"Great location - near enough to the park gate without being one of the large park camps.

Nice pool and lovely to watch weavers darting back and forth above.

No sign/ board at all after the gates, so we did wonder if we were in the right place! In some ways this was nice, but slightly confusing.

Food and room were great. Nice to hear lion and hyena at night." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

Accommodation gave the impression of being part of nature when you opened up the flaps of the tent/house." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

2 nights Arrived 10 Sep 2023
"Not as luxurious as Etosha but a more authentic experience, the room and facilities were good, and the staff so friendly.

Everything worked and it was great chatting to other guests at the pool or by the campfire. We didn’t go out on an excursion here as we had just driven through Etosha park and seen all the wildlife as detailed on the previous page.

There was a small watering hole and a family of Warthogs were a treat to watch. At night you could hear the wildlife going past my tented room.

The food here was fresh and delicious with a lovely banquet laid out under the stars. Fabulous." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 25 Jul 2023
"We really liked the family tent here. Very cosy and comfortable. Food was excellent here as well, even though the first night it took very long before it was served. The marshmellows on our second night were a highlight for our kids.

There was one issue - not really any fault of Mushara - but at the gate after leaving Etosha after our last morning drive, they insisted that if you sleep outside the park your permit is somehow not valid for 24 hours as normal, but only until you leave the park on the night before. In the end they did let us leave, but it left a bit of bad taste. Perhaps good to know that such discussions can occur if you stay outside the park."

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 12 Jul 2023
"Mushara was conveniently located to Etosha's eastern gate and very nice. The food was also very good. We had one unfortunate incident: the hot water bottle the staff out in my husband's bed during turndown leaked. When we called the staff, they wanted to move us--at 10:30 pm, after I was already in pajamas--to an empty room with smaller beds. We declined, and my husband ultimately persuaded the staff to turn the mattress over and remake the bed. Ideally, water bottles should be checked regularly for tears and leaks. And, of course, there was no heat in the rooms during the cold winter nights, so the water bottle was critical. Overall, though, we enjoyed our stay at Mushara." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Again a lovely warm reception from all of the staff. Our room was good, everything was spotlessly clean and the food was good. When we were there it was extremely cold on a night and we thought another fire at the bottom of the dinning room would have been nice. We did get hot water bottles put in our bed which was heaven.

Good location for visiting Etosha, you definitely need a 4 x4 in there at the moment as the roads are very bad." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 12 Jun 2023
"The bush camp was a quiet and comfortable place to stay, meals were excellent and the public areas very accommodating.

The quality of the rooms and meals, and certainly the service, was superior to the next two places inside Etosha NP (Halali and Okaukuejo), but the presence of the amazing lighted waterholes at Halali and Okaukuejo--something lacking at Mushara--made up for any rough edges in facilities or service at those two interior camps."

"Charming camp, very much our view of the ideal safari accommodation.

Lovely tents, welcoming service, nice food and well located for Etosha park.

On-site family of warthogs and various small animals wandering through in the evening is a bonus.

Had a close encounter with a mongoose while having a cup of tea!" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
