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.

Mushara Outpost - luxury tented lodge

Mushara Outpost consists of a stunning main lodge with double luxury tents in the grounds. To be honest you can hardly describe these as tents at all. They are fantastic hugh ensuite bedrooms that just happen to have canvas walls. They each have an indoor and outdoor shower, minibar, veranda...It is very quiet and relaxing here. They do not take young children.

Dinner is superb and eaten communally. Pre dinner drinks are taken around an outdoor fire.

Mushara is a few kilometers from the Von Lindequist Gate and then 10km on to Namatoni camp. There are are several good watering holes near to Namatoni. We saw lots of animals here.

We wished we had more nights here

The Mushara outpost a perfect place to finish your trip. What a beautiful old farm house, the service attentive and unobtrusive, the quality of food and wines exceptional. A great pool too. The rooms are good albeit on the small side. T

he guide Petrus a true professional. Highly recommended.

Mushara Outpost review

Great food and attention to detail all round. Small lodge with very friendly staff in lovely setting. Luxurious bed and and bedding.

More formal atmosphere with other guests compared to other lodges we stayed at. 10km outside park but easily accessible on Tarmac road.

Would recommend.

Mushara Outpost review

A very warm welcome upon arrival. Overall I would say the service was attentive, professional, discrete, but lacked some individualism.

We felt like guest in their house but what a beautiful place it was. The main building was wonderfully decorated with obvious a lot of time and consideration given to the furnishings and decor. The lodge was absolutely spotless with so many little touches. The food was really good and served at exactly the right pace.

The individual rooms reflected the attention in detail in the main building. Because you are on stilts it does get very cold at night . The glass surround shower was unique! We did see quite a few birds and animals from our veranda we guessed they were on their way to the nearby waterhole (not allowed to visit during the evening unfortunately).

Perfect location for Etosha so we were able to get there for opening in the morning come home in the afternoon and return late afternoon til dusk. I would definitely recommend this 'outpost'.

Mushara Outpost review

The Outpost main building is European design and one could imagine Earnest Hemmingway enjoying a sundowner there.

The rooms were very nice, private, and quiet. Meals were delicious.
