Mushara Outpost review

A beautiful camp; the tented chalets are huge with wonderful indoor/outdoor showers, air conditioning and wooden verandas.

There are dik dik and lovely birds everywhere. Food was lovely and we were given some very nice vegetarian options.

Tea and cake in the afternoon was particularly welcome.

Musher Outpost review

This was a very comfortable rather luxurious camp but we would have preferred another night in Etosha. This was recommended to us as a bit of luxury after 5 nights at the National Camps, but we liked the Etosha camps, even though they are not so luxurious, and this was an expensive overnight stay.

Again the Namibian staff were very nice, but the camp was a bit 'stuffy' and guests kept to themselves.

The highlight was a baby Oryx which was hiding under our tent platform having been left their by Mum until she could return. It was gone the next day.

Mushara Outpost review

This was the best camp of our trip.

Everything was perfect from the room to the service.

The food is particularly world class and would merit Michelin stars.

beautiful accomadation on lodge

This lodge was our favourite in terms of décor and lay out. The main building was very colonial and our chalet was ideal. I particularly liked the open air shower!. We had time to relax here as we stayed for 2 days and we needed the relaxation after all the travelling.

The pool while cold was not so cold as to be uncomfortable. We were treated to Dik Diks and Warthogs grazing on the lawns. There was a real relaxed atmosphere, the camp fire was lit every night and we really enjoyed sitting around it after dinner.

The food was tasty and plentiful and the staff were friendly. We went on a morning drive, which we really enjoyed and our guide made sure we got to experience the wildlife rather than just having photo opportunities without disturbing them.

We'd highly recommend this accommodation.

Luxurious Mushara

The Outpost is gorgeous. The main villa is beautifully decorated and to call the accommodations "tents" seems misleading. It was certainly the chicest tent I've ever seen.

This was toward the end of our trip. We'd been driving rough gravel roads and rushing from activity to activity for almost two weeks. Mushara was an oasis of calm and relaxation. We went into Etosha with a guide in the morning and saw some interesting animals (large herds of giraffe - some sparring, cheetahs, hyena, and a black rhino). Came back to the Outpost intending to have lunch and a break and head back out. Instead we just relaxed into a lazy afternoon.

We were the only guests, which could have been awkward. However, the service was nicely balanced between attentive and discrete. The lack of other guests highlighted the oasis feeling.

Mushara Outpost review

Great luxury to be pampered a bit after being in more basic accommodation.

Great food and very attentive staff. Would love to have stayed a couple of extra days.

Great for birds.

our luxury stop!

We enjoyed the luxury and relaxation of Mushara after 3 days in Etosha. It was a lovely place. But it was an up-market hotel and lacked the local spirit and generosity we experienced in the lodges - I didn't have the feeling that there was much commitment to promoting Namibia. Food was good but portions, especially at breakfast, felt carefully cost controlled. Staff very nice and friendly but there wasn't the joie de vivre and community spirit that we experienced at Doro !Nawas or Kualala.

The word conservation was not in any of the Mushara literature we read and, despite not having much rain for 5 years, the hose pipes were left on for several hour, flooding the grass and paths. It felt like the white owned cattle farm had been transformed into a hotel where profit was the main motivation. But having said that we thoroughly enjoyed the night there and facilities.

Mushara Outpost review

Pretentious and posh. Lovely buildings, tents and pool but location is very poor. In a drab, dry river bed with no views and dense shrub all round. Some good but limited birding.

Food was fancy/way too complicated (a starter with 6 different sub-dishes is not our thing). Staff were smart, well trained and efficient as you would expect in such a classy outfit. It was notable that this was the only place in Namibia that got our bill right first time! Too efficient by far.

Access to Van Lindqvist gate is OK.

I'm sure some people would love the 'luxury' but not us.

Mushara Outpost review

One of the most luxurious "tents" we've ever stayed in! Superb facilities and excellent imaginative food.

The guided trips into Etosha were really good as well - we covered in a relatively small part of the park but still managed to find multiple lions, elephant, rhino as well as cheetah.
