"Friendly mongoose and great food"

2 nights Arrived 11 Jan 2020
"Lodge had attractive gardens and swimming pool. Dinners and breakfasts were high standard, lots of variety

Service was inconsistent, we were offered dessert and said yes but it didn't arrive. The same waiter was also slow on drinks service and his demeanor was less friendly than other waiters.

Victoria was a standout. She had a good sense of humour and was efficient.

The room sprung some leaks during a thunderstorm and there was water pooling on the sides - (we had the canvas shutters up)

The game drive was rich in animals but the guide spent too long on his phone - at times it seemed he was talking to other guides about where animals where but at other times he was looking at photos and seemed to be having personal conversations

Guide was still informative and provided a great experience, especially when it rained heavily and he got the ponchos and car sorted while also still serving G&Ts.

We saw a cheetah on our self guided drive." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Overnight at Mushara"

1 night Arrived 9 Sep 2019
"Had a short, overnight stay at Mushara. The tented chalets were very comfortable, perhaps abit on the side, but with all the basic facilities, including a good shower. The welcoming staff initially did not seem as friendly as in some other private lodges we stayed, but the overall service was quite good. The open lounge and dining area proved to have a very nice atmosphere at night and the food was of high quality. The pool area was quite large but lacked a surrounding tiled area so wasn't as clean as it could have been.
We didn't do any activities here" See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

1 night Arrived 6 Aug 2019
"Mushara Bush Camp is a very attractive camp with just the right blend of sympathetic and comfortable accommodation without overdoing it. Think camping that everyone will enjoy!

It is right outside one of the gates out of Etosha National Park. Which was handy for us as we saw a leopard feeding on an elephant carcass at very close quarters just as the park was closing so we were able to stay and savour every marvellous moment.

"Great feel to this place!"

2 nights Arrived 30 Jul 2019
"Perhaps overall our favourite pick of the trip, but then again we were spoiled for choice!
Loved the tented communal area, the super friendly staff, the meal out by fire one night was fab. Had an easy going vibe to it. We also did game drive from here - we didn't see any more than self drive, but learnt loads from our very experienced guide Ute." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 17 Feb 2019
"Good to excellent, but not in the same way as Ongava. Lovely being in a camp surrounded by bush, with all the basics being very well done.

Probably the best food we had. Brilliant swimming pool. Guide worked hard to find us game in Etosha and we were well rewarded.

Big herds of elephant, Oryx, wildebeest, impala, springbok, zebra but also Black and white rhino, hyena, lion, leopard." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Stylish with good food"

2 nights Arrived 19 Oct 2018
"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. " See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
