Wish we'd stayed longer

After a hot day driving through the park, we checked in, had a swim in the lovely pool, then drove back into Etosha for the last couple of hours before sunset.

Dinner was gourmet-style food in the beautifully-furnished thatched area. Rooms are attractive and thoughtfully designed and equipped. No waterhole, but proximity to the park gate more than compensates for that.

Mushara Bush Camp review

The service and the food here are worthy of special mention.

We enjoyed a game drive in Etosha with a knowledgeable guide as an introduction to the park

We were treated a lovely outdoor evening meal, under the stars.

Mushara Bush Camp review

A bit too "new" after Andersson's Camp. It felt somewhat lacking in "atmosphere" though all the facilities were excellent.

Luxury Tented Camp

Lovely luxury camp with great food and a beautiful pool just outside the Eastern gate to Etosha National Park, I definitely recommend staying here if you're not staying within the park. The tents are spacious and the bathroom nice if not a little revealing as the there is no door to the shower and the toilet door didn't close properly!

A couple of things, there is no lock on the tent door so when you leave you will leave knowing that someone could easily enter without a key if they wish however there is a security guy that wanders around and a safe for valuables (that uses a key rather than a code). I recommend just taking important things with you in the car to be extra safe. At night when you're asleep you can lock it from the inside although the place seemed quiet and safe, it's more of a comfort thing. The front gate isn't manned so you do have to get in and out of your car to open and close it when arriving and departing, which apart from being very slightly inconvenient, makes the gate a bit pointless.

The hostess was friendly and on our last night a huge outdoor buffet was laid out for everyone in a really beautiful setting. There are two other Mushara camps that i am aware of including, Villa Mushara and Mushara Outpost, which i think provide a little more comfort and luxury but Mushara Bush Camp is luxurious without the same price tag and so well worth it for those looking to save a little extra. One last thing - the wifi didn't work for me but it did for my friend, it seems they have a few issues with it.

Expert Africa comments

We passed these comments onto the owner of Mushara, Marc Pampe, who takes any feedback very seriously. Marc explained that as the tents are made from cloth and canvas, a lock on the outside of the door is somewhat pointless, but that valuables are secure in the safe provided. Marc also explained that the unmanned front gate is not a security measure, but that it is there to keep the animals of the Mushara reserve where they should be - inside the reserve! We were sorry to hear that the WiFi at Mushara was not working well at the time these travellers stayed. Mushara upgraded their WiFi a few weeks after these travellers visited, and we are told it is now working much better.

Magnificent Mushara

Mushara Bush Camp is quite family orientated and there were a few children here during our stay but the luxury tents are spreadout and the atmosphere was pleasant.

The dining experience was restaurant quality with delicious food brilliantly presented under a giant thatched roof. Staff were attentive and mealtimes were a pleasure.

Mushara is very close to Etosha's Von Lindequist Gate and we spent our day in the park. We saw Damara Dik-Dik from our veranda and the camp feels very much in the wild
