"Authentic, down to earth camp"
The setting was authentic as it was not manicured but attractive in a natural setting.
Staff were very good and the singing was lovely. We took a morning walk with a guide for some exercise. It was a slow walk but he gave us a lot of information about the tree and plant life." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
"Just a great lodge close to Etosha"
The tents\chalets are set in the bush at a little distance from the main reception area. These are well designed private, spacious and modern with integral showers and toilets. There are charging points and a kettle and tea making facilities. There is a safe and even an air horn in case of an emergency, which include insects you don't like apparently!
The food and service in the restaurant was excellent and you can even get a decent vegetarian option. The staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful and the whole place is kept spic and span. After dinner we were entertained by the staff choir which was was of an incredibly high standard.
Unfortunately we did not have chance to go on one of the morning walks due to illness and the lack of a guide. There is nothing to fault here." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 8n in South Africa

"Mushara Bush Camp review"
One of our group celebrated his birthday while we were there. A choir made up of the employees at the camp sang a Namibian equivalent of "Happy Birthday".
Excellent food, beautifully presented but no choice." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Romantic, luxury tented accommodation."
The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and entertained us both nights with a celebration birthday song (the second night for Kieran). The food was excellent and a birthday cake presented on request to make it a special occasion.
Very comfortable with a delightful bush setting. All the group commented on how varied and delightful the accommodation had been so far." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Wonderful birthday treat at Mushara Bush camp"
Central lounge area very stylish and comfortable. Pet warthogs very entertaining.
Customer service was amazing - very friendly staff. Enjoyed the evening entertainment - staff all looked like they loved singing to guests! Very special birthday treatment for my husband - delicious cake and singing
Food delicious. Was nice to have a set menu instead of a buffet for dinner. Very flexible with dietary requirements.
Good location - close to National Park entrance." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana
"Very convenient location"
All the buildings were attractive and the room was comfortable.
It was a convenient base for exploring the east end of the park as it's so near the entrance." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia
"Great stay out of Etosha park"
"Mushara Bush Camp"
If there was a criticism it was the food being a bit over complicated.
Sitting quietly by the room watching the dik diks come around in the morning, followed by playful ground squirrels was a treat." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia
"The food is superb and the Camp stunning"
Mushara is a good base for exploring Eastern Etosha and is located about 9km from the park entrance.
As we had previously spent two days self driving in Etosha we elected to do a morning game drive from the lodge. This proved a good idea as we saw black rhino, a pride of 14 lions, cheetah, elephant, giraffe and hyena." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
