"Mushara Bush Camp review"

1 night Arrived 11 Dec 2016
"What a difference! This place is truly lovely. Set in beautiful grounds with wildlife grazing around the tents.

A fabulous pool and the accommodation was top notch. The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent.

We wished we had stayed here longer and flagged Okaukuejo! Didn't have a chance to do much here as we were en route to the Caprivi.

Highly recommended as a place to stay." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Great camp!"

2 nights Arrived 6 Nov 2016
"Not much to say, great camp just at the border to Etosha - at the time of our visit there was a lot of termites in the air due to the rains - perhaps some alternative for eating out could be arranged so that guests doesn't have to eat termites as well?" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Peace & luxury at Mushara Bush Camp"

1 night Arrived 2 Nov 2016
"A memorable stay in a small & intimate camp. Beautifully furnished and very comfortable tents, set in woodland with shady verandas.

A large and clean pool, delicious food including a barbeque under the stars at dinner. Lovely staff who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, especially Hilma the manager.

We would love to have stayed longer than 1 night." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 8n in Botswana; 1n in Zimbabwe

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 21 Oct 2016
"Excellent camp - beautiful pool and restaurant, very child friendly but lots of adults on their own too. The food was the best we had in Namibia. The game on this side of Etosha was fantastic - we saw lions every time we went out, a leopard, a cheetah, a pack of spotted hyenas, herds of elephants. It couldn't have been a better experience.

We especially loved the buffet meal outside.

Room/tents were great - our only comment - it was very hot and the fans in the tents were ineffectual - they really need ceiling fans." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia

"Stylish and convenient access to Etosha"

2 nights Arrived 20 Oct 2016
"This camp is set in the bush without open views. It is 10Km from the Von Lindequist gate on the eastern edge of Etosha, so access to the waterholes is good.

There is a beautifully constructed, thatched central area with an elegant décor. The grassed area in front was a favourite grazing area for local wart hogs. One evening, dinner was served at the lantern lit Boma.

The accommodation is well spaced. We were in number 8 (of 16). It was about 200m from the lodge." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Mushara Bush Camp was luxurious"

2 nights Arrived 13 Oct 2016
"High standard accommodation and welcoming friendly staff.

An excellent early morning game drive into Etosha with a very knowledgeable guide was the highlight.

It had become extremely hot (40C+) by this time and we were very grateful for the air conditioning in our tent - too hot to sit out by the pool in the afternoon" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 18 Jul 2016
"An interesting one this. Somewhat disconcerted that there was nowhere to lock anything away (even the room) other than a small safe. As we had some fairly expensive camera equipment with us that meant we had to carry everything around with us (even to the restaurant). Maybe worth mentioning that aspect. Maybe that is the situation with all canvas camps.

The central area and restaurant were excellent and the staff were very good, helpful and friendly." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
