Mushara Lodge review

A pleasant place to stay having driven across Etosha that day. Clean and comfortable. Nice pool. Good dinner outside one night.

Slightly disappointing that the only excursions were back into Etosha. We self-drove. We did have the thrill of seeing a leopard on the way to Mushara, sitting right on the side of the road.

All animals listed as seen below, where seen in Etosha not Mushara.

Mushara Lodge review

good quality well laid out some way out of Etosha

The most disappointing feature was the quality of the guiding which was below the standard experienced in Zim, Zambia Tanz and RSA

The guide was charming and v willing but added v little value to that of a driver.

Mushara Lodge review

Disappointing in many ways - flattering to deceive and certainly not a patch on Ongava and Onguma fort.

Food very average

Amazing Mushara

Mushara Lodge was beautiful with fabulous rooms and the best staff of the holiday.

Had a wedding anniversary and birthday here and the staff helped celebrate with flowers, candles and singing.

Food was delicious with a braai one evening in a magically lit boma with beautifully laid tables and again catered for vegetarian members really well. Also enjoyed sitting by the roaring fire in the lodge.

We had issues with our hire car whilst staying here and the staff could not have been more helpful in sorting a replacement. As we were without our car for a day we decided to take a guided safari from the lodge. So pleased we did. With Solomon’s (our guide) knowledge of the local wildlife in the eastern section of Etosha we spotted a leopard and a cheetah with 3 cubs. Wow.

Thank you Mushara for a memorable stay.

Probably the best place I have ever stayed at

An outstanding lodge in every respect. Wonderful room, excellent meals and two wonderful locations to enjoy the dining experience.

The BBQ on our second night was one that I will certainly not forget!

Wonderful lodge with outstanding service

We stayed her in 2017 and made the right decision to go back. It is a lovely lodge with great food, service and style.

Divided opinion between us

Whilst this is a beautiful place, very well equipped and comfortable with lovely rooms, our opinions were divided.

Perhaps it was our fault but we didn't realise in advance that the only trips were back into Etosha, where we had just spent the previous four days. One of us went on one of these in the morning and was quite happy but the other didn't on the basis that we had seen all we wanted to see. So one of us spent the whole day hanging around in Mushara with nobody else around (there were no other guests at the time) and literally nothing to do. No walks (you can't go far because there are animals roaming the Mushara grounds), no waterhole and no views. It was a shame because it is lovely, but it flatters to deceive. It is fine if you just want to crash out for a day or if you treat it as a base for Etosha.

If you've already spent a few days in Etosha and don't want to go back there isn't really much point in staying here. It falls short of excellent because of the lack of things to do.

Mushara Lodge review

We had originally booked to stay in the Bush Camp, but upon arrival in mid afternoon found the "tent" too hot for us.

So moved to Mushara Lodge with a/c ! Lovely lodge. Convenient to re-enter Etosha via Von Lindequist Gate. Beautiful pool area.

The lady who looked after us during our stay was Lunkrentia (Lu for short). A really helpful cheerful young lady.

Mushara Lodge review

Only one night here, so difficult to make proper comment. However they did help me celebrate my birthday with flowers on the breakfast table and the staff sang to me. A nice touch
