"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 16 Jul 2014
"A delightful camp. The main building is attractive and open but has tented sides pulled down for evening in winter, which makes it cosy, especially with blankets to put over knees. Food is very good.

Staff are welcoming. Warthogs are often on the lawn and dik-diks can be seen in the grounds.

In winter, the tents can be rather cold at night so a morning shower can be bracing! The beds however are warm and comfortable, with hot water bottles put in before bed." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

1 night Arrived 10 Jul 2014
"Only 10 minutes from the Von Linquist Gate. We stayed here as Expert Africa had recently visited Namutomi Camp where we had originally booked and found there to be issues. Following their concerns for our comfort and safety, we were moved to Mushara, less than 2 weeks prior to travelling.

This appears to have been a very good decision - we did pop in to Namutomi to look around and found a real mess of a building site. Mushara was very pleasant - wonderful staff (Vicktoria looked after us extremely well from arrival to check out the next morning), excellent food and good rooms. We would certainly recommend this as a good place to stay on the east side of Etosha." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Good camp, but away from park gate"

2 nights Arrived 14 Jun 2014
"Excellent decor in the main area and chalets were clean and well maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff.

For wildlife photographers it would be better to stay within the park as you will get additional viewing time at sunrise and sunset." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

1 night Arrived 10 Jun 2014
"The comfiest bed I have ever slept in! Situated just outside the Von Lindequist gate on the eastern side of Etosha this place was a delight.

The attention to detail, second to none. When we returned from the evening meal we found our bush tent all set up for the night and they had even put hot water bottles in the bed to warm them up. The tents were very clean and equipped with everything you needed and more, including tea and shortbread biscuits!!

We only stayed here as Namutoni was under restoration, but it was truly lovely and very relaxing after a long days drive. Evening drinks were very reasonably priced here. A delight!" See all these reviews: 25n in Namibia

"A delightful stay at Mushara Bush Camp"

2 nights Arrived 3 Jun 2014
"We were warmly welcomed by extremely efficient and friendly staff and warthogs on the lawn! The reception area and restaurant is a large, open and attractive area and there is a well stocked tourist shop with a rather wider selection of nice goods than is usual.

The food was very good and the staff charming.

The tented rooms were spread out in the bush behind the lodge. We had everything we needed and we liked this camp enormously. We would have been happy to stay longer and have no hesitation in recommending Mushara.

Mushara is close to the East side of Etosha and the park is easily accessible." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
