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.
Very convenient location
Very nice stay. Lovely to wake up to the sound of so many birds.
All the buildings were attractive and the room was comfortable.
It was a convenient base for exploring the east end of the park as it's so near the entrance.
Wonderful birthday treat at Mushara Bush camp
Beautiful safari tented accommodation. We enjoyed hearing all the nighttime sounds from the comfort of our room. Most comfortable bed of our trip!!
Central lounge area very stylish and comfortable. Pet warthogs very entertaining.
Customer service was amazing - very friendly staff. Enjoyed the evening entertainment - staff all looked like they loved singing to guests! Very special birthday treatment for my husband - delicious cake and singing
Food delicious. Was nice to have a set menu instead of a buffet for dinner. Very flexible with dietary requirements.
Good location - close to National Park entrance.
Mushara Bush Camp review
We received a very friendly welcome on our arrival (even from the resident warthogs and hornbills).
One of our group celebrated his birthday while we were there. A choir made up of the employees at the camp sang a Namibian equivalent of "Happy Birthday".
Excellent food, beautifully presented but no choice.
Romantic, luxury tented accommodation.
We loved the tented luxury accommodation and the beautiful main reception/dining area at Mushara. With warthogs grazing on the lawn in front of the open sided main building, the first impression of this camp was magical.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and entertained us both nights with a celebration birthday song (the second night for Kieran). The food was excellent and a birthday cake presented on request to make it a special occasion.
Very comfortable with a delightful bush setting. All the group commented on how varied and delightful the accommodation had been so far.
Great stay out of Etosha park
