"Wish we'd stayed longer"

1 night Arrived 27 Sep 2015
"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." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 5n in Zimbabwe

"Luxury Tented Camp"

2 nights Arrived 25 Aug 2015
"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." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Magnificent Mushara"

2 nights Arrived 31 Jul 2015
"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" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
