"Luxury camping"

2 nights Arrived 24 Aug 2010
"The tents were very well positioned and contained everything required

Food was good well presented but small portions and no choice. 2nd night we ate in the Boma where they had really gone to town - an enjoyable evening with entertainment.

Pity about having to travel back to Etosha and sort out park fees yet again ." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Kudu visits in the night"

2 nights Arrived 17 Aug 2010
"Like Camp Kipwe we really loved this place. Small, quiet, with friendly staff who gave provided excellent attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

"Tented rooms" were superb with spacious dressing and bathroom area.
Large pool and excellent well furnished main lodge complete with indoor fire.
"Set" menu but will offer something else if you ask.

Animals roam around - especially at night. We were awoken by Kudu right outside our tent munching leaves from the bushes and then "relieving" themselves rather noisly - where could you get an opportunity like this in the UK! - we thought it was really funny!
Access to the eastern part of Etosha through the Von Lindequist gate very convenient.

Highly recommend this camp." See all these reviews: 25n in Namibia

"Chilling out at Mushara"

2 nights Arrived 7 Aug 2010
"Well, we chilled out for an afternoon anyway, after driving through the park from Okaukuejo, and took advantage of the spacious pool. This is a very smart lodge with welcoming staff and very comfortable tented rooms. On the first evening they did a communal braai buffet with all the tables arranged in a circle round the fire and the other night we had individual dining tables. The food was good and very well-presented.

We chose to spend a second day in Etosha ourselves, rather than do a Mushara drive. Whereas the arrival day was mostly zebra and springbok, this time it was mostly elephant and giraffe. We spent ages at one waterhole watching more than 30 elephants having their bathtime, the mums throwing water, mud and dust around like no tomorrow and the kids just larking about - absolutely fascinating."

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 4 Aug 2010
"Wonderful. Considering this is the cheapest of the Mushara collection accomodation, we all thought it was amazing.

It was comfortable, had a good sized pool which was warmer than others we had used, and lovely food. A set dinner each night, but the staff were happy to provide alternatives if needed.

It has a particularly good gift shop, with lovely bead necklaces." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 4 Aug 2010
"Very new camp fairly close to the park gate. Tented accommodation which was much more luxurious than we had expected - lovely rooms. Reception and the dining room / seating areas were very attractive.

We had dinner inside the first night - the second was outside with a barbeque. The second night was very busy - everyone sat in a horseshoe in a circular enclosure and had to go up for their food. I had asked at lunchtime for a vegetarian meal (too full of meat by then) and was very impressed when I got to the front of the queue at the barbeque to be presented with a lovely pasta dish which they had waiting for me without me asking!

Had an early morning start in the park then a late lunch at the lodge with some lovely chilled SA wine before we spent an afternoon relaxing at the pool which was pretty busy but there was plenty space and lots of loungers etc

Again friendly happy staff who all came out for an evening singing and dancing." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia
