We spent two nights at the Outpost before moving into the National Park and it was excellent. Our accommodation was very good although it was some distance from the main lodge but closer to the pool. The tent was surprisingly cool as we had over 40 degrees C and very comfortable. The service was excellent. The staff could not do... More

We spent 4 nights at Mushara, we used it as a base for self driving into Etosha National Park. The tent was really well equipped & not really a tent in the traditional sense. The air con was terrific, really efficient & quiet enough to use through the night. The bed was large, comfortable & had beautiful, crisp white sheets.... More

We stayed two nights in Mushara Outpost whilst exploring the eastern end of Etosha. The Outpost was excellent in all respects - lovely accommodation,  excellent food and very helpful staff. Accommodation is well equipped and stylish rigid framed canvas chalets which are impeccably fitted out. Each has a choice of two showers - indoor or outdoor (both private!) - the... More

Nice tents, although for us the drawback was that we had asked for one near the main lodge and were given one of the furthest away. However, the atmosphere, physical warmth and comeraderie of the other guests and staff was excellent - the best we experienced in Namibia. Eating at one long table added to the atmosphere. we were somewhat... More

This lodge was one of the best at which we stayed during a 25 day self-drive safari around Namibia and Botswana. Convenient for visiting Eastern Etosha, the standards were high from arrival to departure. Comfortable in the communal areas, the individual tents were well equipped for a peaceful stay. Staff were well trained. Food was well up to standard. A... More

Mushara outpost We loved this place, situated just east of Etosha National Park. Beware of numerous Mushara named places! The main building was like an old colonial house, and it was surrounded by a lawn complete with warthogs, steenbok, and dik-diks. Some good birds also present, e.g. crimson breasted shrike! The rooms may have not have had the best of... More

Only a short drive from Etosha Gate, this is a great place to stay with lovely food. An outdoor eating area as well as indoor with very nice grounds where warthogs wander casually about. We enjoyed watching them while we ate lunch! At night meals are served communally. Accommodation is delightful - very spacious with an outdoor and indoor shower.... More

I don't know who trained these girls but there was no senior manager about, that is for sure. I asked one of the girls where was the best place in Etosha to see black rhino. Her reply, "We don't have black rhino here, they're all grey because of the dust!" And she was serious!! The staff were excellent, well meaning,... More

Very comfortable lounge area. Good food. Nice room but not over spacious. Good size swimming pool. There is an excellent hide overlooking a waterhole but another guest told us about it. Disappointed that a member of staff forgot to mention this!! The dining area was just in front of the lounge and although the tables were nicely set out the... More

We had been traveling more than three weeks when we arrived at Mushara for a few nights. For the first time since Windhoek we had air conditioning. It was a luxury. The cabins are well appointed. The main lodge building reminds me of what it must have been like to be a landowner in the old days - well appointed... More
