Mushara Bush Camp review

Lovely well-equipped and spacious tent with really comfortable bed, full mosquito net, fan and ensuite bathroom. Nice peaceful location, near to Etosha park, but not particularly scenic in the dry season. The grounds are home to quite tame warthogs, hornbills and squrrels which provided visual amusement and photo opportunities. We didn't take any children but noticed that it seemed particularly well equipped for them with a playground and an indoor play area off the dining room. Staff were lovely and service and food very good. Not totally ideal for someone with mobility difficulties as quite a way from the parking area and tent was some way from the main facilities, but we managed. Fortunately, help was given to transport luggage.from parking area..

Convenient for Etosha

A warm welcome from staff and a comfortable Meru tent, although as we were in room 1, not terribly private. We had other guests taking short cuts and walking by our porch and tent so privacy was nil on some occasions, which spoilt it. We were also just across from the open air restaurant and pool, so did get some noise from that. So best to avoid room 1.

The Mushara morning game drive into Etosha was well organised and all the guides were in radio contact with each other so were able to keep each other informed where all the good sightings were, the lodge also provided a packed breakfast and coffee.

It was a pleasant place to stay and not far from the Namutoni entrance to Etosha. Staff were all very welcoming and helpful but again like Okonjima, no one seemed to know about the Soya milk or to be bothered about it. After our experience with Okonjima we had got tired of repeatedly asking so had given up on it.

Loved everything about this place!

Mushara Bush Camp has lovely reception, dining and lounge areas - very stylish and comfortable. The luxury tent was amazing, well appointed and very comfortable. The pool was great with much appreciated cold refreshing water and plenty of loungers both in and out of shade.

Dinner was really good, vegetarian options available and delicious breakfasts - I remember the bread especially. Dinner on the second night was a braai with tables outside, beautifully lit tables and surroundings, and great singing & dancing by the staff - all very memorable.

We booked a morning game drive for one last trip into Etosha and it was just us and the driver - and what a great experience it was seeing lions up close at the first waterhole Chudop, then later at the same one around 40-50 elephants of all sizes drinking, swimming, playing and throwing mud. As our driver Bennie seemed to know most of the other drivers, they let him get in close for a good view. We couldn't have done that in our own car. Excellent coffee & carrot cake back at the camp.

Possibly my only criticism of this place was the thin, cheap pillows but that really is all!

Our first 'tent'!

Accommodation was in 'tented' chalets - clean and comfortable but no sitting area inside the chalet (chairs on outside terrace). Main central area was lovely. Huge restaurant open on three sides to the gardens with a chance of seeing resident wild-life ( warthog, dikdik).

Excellent food - the first night we had a most enjoyable buffet in the garden, painstakingly set up by the cheerful staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it.

Mushara Bush Camp review

This is a newish camp with an impressive open reception, lounge, dining area and smart, if a little small, well equipped tents.

We only stayed one night and the camp was full which is perhaps why service at dinner was a bit slow but the quality of the food and enthusiastic staff singing and dancing made it well worth the wait.

Mushara Bush Camp review

During our stay we had dinner in the open air. The atmosphere was great till it suddenly started raining and lightning. The staff obviously wasn't prepared. But they improvised so that we, partly could continue our dinner in the main lodge.

Our advise: keep on serving dinner in the open air, unless rain is expected.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The tents have been upgraded since our last time here (2011) and there's a lot more room in the tents.

The atmosphere in the camp is really great.

Mushara Bush Camp review

We enjoyed this camp with a good room which felt as if it was on its own, a very nice main building which was fresh and well maintained, a good location outside the park yet only 10 mins away and excellent service and food. The dinner by the boma fire was particularly good and other food of high quality.

The service was friendly and helpful. The meals were eaten together but at separate tables i.e. not communal like many other camps. Have to watch out for the tree squirrels pinching food. Also had Warthog and Common Duiker and various birds really close on the lawn and heard Lions roaring at night although they are in another concession.

We didn't do any of the activities arranged by Mushara as we drove ourselves into the park on our full day there.

Mushara Bush Camp review

Mushara made a good base just outside of Etosha. We had a lovely evening meal in the boma.

Also took a guided trip back into Etosha which we enjoyed.

Room was clean and fresh.

An enjoyable luxury camp

Our tent was simple but very comfortable, the central facilities were very attractive and the food was very good - both in the dining area and the boma.

Unfortunately we could not take advantage of the luxury facilities as we left each morning at 6.45am to go to Etosha and only returned after dark.
