Mushara review

The camp was great, food excellent, staff helpful. But the only reason to go here is to experience Etosha, the camp doesn't have really its own interest points.

Luckily Etosha was superb on most of our visits to it, but otherwise this would not have worked for our group.

Mushara Bush Camp review

This was one of our favourite places. The lodge area was lovely and the permanent tents were very well designed. It could not have been a more family friendly place. The staff were exceptionally obliging and went out of their way to entertain our 8 year old niece who was charmed. The food was some of the best we had.

Our guide, Imelda, was exceptional. We said that we wanted to see a black rhino and she worked extremely hard to find one and spotted one at a great distance while driving the car! Although it was far away it was easy to see with binos and a real treat. She also found a pride of lions who had recently feasted. She was extremely knowledgeable on birds as well as mammals, it was a privileged to be out with her.

Great stay at the Mushara Bush Camp!

We had a wonderful one night stay at the Mushara Bush Camp. Upon entering the grounds, we finally saw our first warthogs of the trip! The cute little guys were grazing on the front lawn as we entered the well-designed and welcoming reception and dining area.

The food, particularly dinner, was quite good and we were very pleased with our room, that was a perfect blend of inside/outside space. We enjoyed that the bathroom area was enclosed and private, while the main living area had the option of being private and closed or open and well-ventilated. The fan in the room was also a useful addition.

We arrived around 2 PM and were able to squeeze in an afternoon game drive. Given the short notice, the camp was great in accommodating us and finding us a guide as they were already very busy that afternoon. The drive itself was not the best as the game during this time of year was sparse, except for giraffe and antelope. To fill the time, we attempted to ask our guide questions about the park itself as well as the bird life, but he did not provide a lot of information and his answers were brief. This was a little disappointing, but altogether, we were just happy to be out on a drive in Etosha.

The only other thing worth noting is that we did not get to experience the pool, but it looked lovely. It seemed to be a great attraction for those looking to spend part (or all) of the day relaxing with friends or family.

Mushara Bush Camp review

This was our introduction to African Lodges and we were so impressed and delighted with the personal reception and the time taken to introduce us to the Lodge, its facilities, meals, services, and our accommodation.

Mushara is advertised as Family Friendly and, as a past primary teacher, I was very impressed with the playground and toys they had readily available for children.

The staff went above and beyond what was required to acquaint us with Park procedures and they even renewed our weekly cell for us.

Our stay was just overnight so we did not do any of the Activities provided.

Beautiful and great safari!

Mushara Bush Camp was a dream! The staff is so kind and helpful. We had a fantastic tented chalet, and they left us a treat and note congratulating us on our wedding (it was our honeymoon). The chalet got a bit hot during the day, but that was okay because they had a wonderful pool to lay by and beat the heat!
The food was excellent, we especially liked the BBQ night!
We did a half day safari through them, our driver was knowledgeable and helped us see many animals including elephants, giraffes and zebras! It was a lot of fun!

A beautiful place

Mushara Bush Camp is a beautiful place. We loved the verandah where breakfast, lunch, and dinner were served.

We loved our drives from the camp to Etosha National Park.

Mushara Bush Camp review

What a difference! This place is truly lovely. Set in beautiful grounds with wildlife grazing around the tents.

A fabulous pool and the accommodation was top notch. The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent.

We wished we had stayed here longer and flagged Okaukuejo! Didn't have a chance to do much here as we were en route to the Caprivi.

Highly recommended as a place to stay.

Great camp!

Not much to say, great camp just at the border to Etosha - at the time of our visit there was a lot of termites in the air due to the rains - perhaps some alternative for eating out could be arranged so that guests doesn't have to eat termites as well?

Expert Africa comments

Chris from the team comments: "Whilst not very appetising at all to most visitors, the bodies of flying termites (less their wings) are fried and eaten as something of a treat, rather like popcorn, in many areas of Africa. I've had these once in Zimbabwe - though I did draw the line at eating them raw, and wriggling!"

Peace & luxury at Mushara Bush Camp

A memorable stay in a small & intimate camp. Beautifully furnished and very comfortable tents, set in woodland with shady verandas.

A large and clean pool, delicious food including a barbeque under the stars at dinner. Lovely staff who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, especially Hilma the manager.

We would love to have stayed longer than 1 night.
