"Mushara Bush Camp review"

1 night Arrived 25 Mar 2016
"Another beautiful camp.

We felt so lucky to stay at different locations to see the differences. The accommodations were great.

They too did a great job of accommodating requests for kid-friendly foods." See all these reviews: 6n in Namibia

"A friendly welcome at Mushara Bush Camp"

1 night Arrived 25 Mar 2016
"The staff welcomed us back (following our visit almost 2 years before) and everything was as good as we remembered.

Great food again, comfortable tents and basically a very comfortable place to stay just 15 minutes outside the East Etosha entrance. Good wifi connection here if required.

"Fantastic camp"

2 nights Arrived 4 Feb 2016
"This was the best place we stayed at in 3 weeks in Namibia, 10 out of 10.

Lovely spacious tents and a very well designed central reception/restaurant/lounge area looking out onto a nice garden. The food was first class and we enjoyed a lazy afternoon lounging around their excellent swimming pool area. Very reasonable price as well.

HIGHLY recommended" See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa

"What a treat! Beautiful place."

2 nights Arrived 28 Dec 2015
"Mushara Bush Camp definitely had the best food of our holiday - phenomenal, beautifully prepared and very well judged.

The whole atmosphere of Mushara Bush Camp was beautifully calm, relaxed and peaceful - from the decor of the buildings and accommodation to the amazing but unintrusive service of the staff.

The location is great for eastern Etosha and we saw some amazing things on our last couple of days touring the park - our photographs look rigged!

We loved it here - wish we could have stayed here another day....." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Wild weather at Mushara Bush Camp"

3 nights Arrived 21 Dec 2015
"We like the layout at Mushara and the quality of the meru tents among the grounds with the odd DIK-DIK wandering outside as well as other small creatures. It does make for a more 'bush feel'.

The food is of a high quaulity if sometimes there are some odd choices.

The closeness to the Von Lindquist gate is great for the daily visit to ETOSHA (8Km) away. We did see more animals, particularly elephants at this part of Etosha (nearer to Namutoni) than elsewhere in the park.

We also had a few wild storms during our three day stay.

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 9 Nov 2015
"Excellent location, close to the entrance to the park and with comfortable and very well thought out rooms.

However nobody seemed to be in charge, and although staff were friendly service was a bit hit and miss. Although in the case of the food it was probably more miss than hit.

The guide on the game drive however was excellent." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Mushara Bush Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 29 Sep 2015
"Mushara Bush Camp is set just outside the National Park, and makes a very good base for seeing Northern Etosha.

We found this part of Etosha to be perhaps less attractive and with less wildlife viewing possibilities than the central Etosha area, but if you are driving right through Etosha it is a convenient overnight location.

The luxury tented en suite accommodation is well laid out in the grounds, and staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Food is excellent, particularly an outdoor barbecue meal on the second night." See all these reviews: 24n in Namibia
