Mushara is a MUST

Close to the east gate into Etosha so easy access into the park. Interestingly this gate was much more laid back at booking you in and reception where the park fees were paid was efficient with no ledgers to complete.

Open plan seating and dining areas with local wildlife, bushpig family to mow the lawns, squirrels to clear the restaurant floor. Great tented accommodation spread throughout the grounds providing privacy. Lovely friendly staff. Excellent food. Good pool.

Went on a game drive with another couple and saw a cheetah with 3 cubs and then returned later to watch her make a kill. Wow. Later drove ourselves in the park and on our way out stopped at the dik dik drive waterhole that had 3 elephants in it who were then joined by a further 13 and then 5 more. What an end to the day a 21 elephant salute

Tented chalet amoungst the wildlife

We spent 2 nights at Mushara Bush Camp which is situated a short distance from one of the gates into Etosha National Park.

We stayed in a tented chalet which seemed to be right in the heart of the bush, in fact one evening we were delighted to find a common duiker just outside our door when we came back from dinner. (A big gate at the entrance to the camp keeps out all the carnivores)

Mosquito nets hung over the bed, it was quaint to have electrified Tilley lamps as reading lights either side of the beds. Tea and coffee making facilities and cookies in a jar were a nice welcome. The small safe was essential as there was no lock on the chalet's main door which I did find rather concerning as it meant my expensive camera gear was uninsured while in situ.

The first evening we ate dinner in the booma which was a delight with the chefs at their BBQ. Lunch and the next evening meal were taken in the dinning room - very good quality food on offer I particularly remember a wonderful chicken caesar salad.

Nice to find free WiFi available in the main building.

During our safaris into Etosha we were lucky enough to encounter an African wildcat and a cheetah with 3 young cubs of about 4 weeks old.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The Bradt guide gives the impression that there are walks around the Mushara estate, which was not the case. After an excellent day spent travelling through Etosha NP, visiting water holes and seeing wild life, we did not feel the need to do a further trip from Mushara.

We did enjoy the accommodation and facilities but activities other than Etosha are needed.

Reasonable

They had a difficult act to follow after we arrived here from Ongava.

Accommodation and pool were fine. On our first evening they forgot to serve us the main course and we had to go and ask for it. There seems to be a system whereby drinks are ordered / served at 19.30, starter at 20.00, dessert at 20.30. Then you have to wait to sign your bill and tell them when you will be having breakfast.

Our second evening there was an outside buffet which was much better run but unfortunately the third evening had the same timetable with plated food being served - so much food piled on top of each other the flavours were lost and much food was wasted because it was far too much, not only for us.

Great facilities and setting.

Setting and rooms are really idyllic. Nice lodge & cosy setting.

BBQ buffet in outside area one night was really good and food overall very good. Big well constructed rooms and big pool.

Generally not that welcoming though.

Had to unroll all our tent flaps ourselves, no bottled water or water cooler available to refill our drinking water, staff generally quite absent and cold compared with everywhere else.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Mushara Bush Camp is a little oasis just outside the eastern gate of Etosha. Elegant tents ensure a good nights sleep after exploring the park.

The main lodge is the focal point for all meals with ample casual seating for relaxing or reconnecting with the outside world with the good wifi. Food, as always, was varied and excellent.

Pool has been recently refurbished and is refreshing in the afternoon heat.

Although exiting and reentering the park through the park gate is a little time consuming, the accommodation here is worth it.

Very welcoming and warm environment to stay

Loved this Bush Camp with it relaxed homely feel. Tented accommodation was a bit of a walk away, but added to the experience of being at a Bush Camp.

Certainly needed the air conditioning in the tent on throughout the night. Food was well presented and appetising, Little duikers wandering around grounds with plenty of bird life.

Staff very helpful and responsive to one's needs. Would certainly stay again.

Very comfortable camp

Mushara Bush Camp is conveniently located just 10km outside Etosha National Park. The partially tented cabins are quite small, but comfortable and private. There is also a swimming pool for refreshment after a long day driving around the Park.

We especially enjoyed the evenings at Mushara - sitting round the fire with a pre-dinner drink and then enjoying the delicious meals which were beautifully presented.

We would recommend staying at Mushara Bush Camp.
