"Mushara Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 11 Jul 2016
"We used Mushara Lodge as a base and drove ourselves round Etosha. Within easy reach of Eastern Gate, although distances within Etosha deceptively long. Delay getting to Namutomi the first morning as there was a rhino crossing the road!
A bit hotel-like for my liking but my daughters enjoyed a bit more comfort, hot water all day etc. Very well appointed bungalow accommodation with glass in the windows (not often encountered on our holiday!). Helpful friendly staff but rather large so not so personal." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana

"Mushara Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 20 Feb 2016
"Long drive through Etosha to be met by huge Bull Elephant on main road, reverse for 1/2 mile before passing him.Greeted in the afternoon by young girl. Smart Lodge set in very green surroundings with beautiful large pool.

Our bungalow, close and comfortable. Tree squirrels amusing.

Very comfortable bed, best sheets so far; large room with good shower. The menu looked better than it tasted. Booked game drive N$500 with female guide Emelda. Early start, good breakfast. Picked up at 6.30, quite cool in the Land Rover. Great drive eventually seeing Cheetah. Back by 12.00 noon. relaxed afternoon with good dinner. All round a great day."
