Stylish with good food

Stylish tents with deckchairs for sitting outside. A bit small but comfortable.

I don’t like to say this, but I did miss the air-conditioning here as it was very hot overnight. Another beautiful reception/restaurant building. Excellent food, but unfortunately had food poisoning here, I don’t think it’s anything to do with their food or cleanliness which were excellent, possibly caused by ice cubes or snacks we bought elsewhere.

Everything else was excellent and the staff was pleasant.

Mushara Bush Camp

We used Mushara Bush Camp as a base to explore Etosha NP. We drove ourselves into the game park and did not use any of the camps activities.

For that purpose the Camp was in a good location not far from the Etosha park entrance. Everything about the Camp was good except the room had no lock on the door and the safe didn’t work. So had to carry cameras and valuables with you at all times about the Camp.

Mushara Bush Camp review

All our game activities were self drive in Etosha, the location of Mushara was very close to the Etosha entry gate

Mushara bush camp exceeded expectations

We arrived at 5pm after a long day game viewing in the park The temperature was 34 degrees Celsius and we were given a friendly welcome by Victoria who showed us around the Camp and our tent.

The secluded tent while hot soon cooled down with the fan on and side and front vents open. The tent was well thought out, as was the camp.The pool was cool and refreshing with plenty of sun beds and shade. The first evening we had a barbecue in the boma which was excellent. The second night we ate in the restaurant that always managed to catch the breeze and again had an excellent meal.

We had some reservations about staying outside the park but the morning game drive with the lodge was very good despite the other couple on the vehicle turning up 25 minutes late. The delay was well managed by an embarrassed camp manager. The guide still managed to to find us the big 4 in the park ending with an excellent siting of a leopard in a tree.

All the staff at the camp were very efficient, competent and friendly

Delightful, slightly different 'lodge'

We thought this a delightful place. It was comfortable but with enough authenticity to merit the name Camp Though the accommodation is set in the 'bush', accessed is by well lit paved paths.

We loved the large attractive thatched lounge, bar and restaurant area, and, even more, the evening barbecue meal in the nearby boma which was delicious.

Our room had everything we needed, the beds were snug, and the staff universally welcoming and helpful. It had the best pool of all we found and was subtly different to the other lodges, and good for that.

It ran the Desert Homestead Outpost, our favourite, very close. Highly recommended.

Mushara was fun

We enjoyed our time at Mushara Bush Camp. They organised a really upbeat, can-do female guide to take us on game drives into Etosha - and she found everything you could want and more including baby lion cubs, cheetah, leopard, elephants, rhino, wildebeast, giraffe, zebra...................

Rooms were very spacious and clean. Was only place we encountered mosquitos - my 14 year old really suffered - so check your bed nets. Food was fine. Staff were all very friendly. Pool was freezing but kids didn't seem to mind.

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.
