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

Accommodation in raised huts along a pathway. Lovely room with all mod cons, even a good air con which is rare indeed. The main house which is the dinning location is like a large safari house full of wonderful items. A seating area with sofas and comfortable chairs. Each evening a fire is lit outside so you can sit around... More

i agree with the majority of the previous posters comments - limited sized tent although furnished well that looks onto scrubland. The main reception, dining area is sumptuous and tastefully furnished. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. Mushara does not have its own reserve and with only a few tents, very few people seemed to go on the organised... More

The title says it all. Great to get real vegetables cooked perfectly. Well located just outside Etosha entry gate. Pretty grounds populated with warthogs, squirrels and birds. The pool was also popular when we were there. Downsides? Well the rooms are canvas and wood constructs and were probably the smallest we had been in out of 6 lodges. They are... More

We stayed at the Mushara outpost this August......the experience was unforgettable! - Really luxury in the middle of namibia - Delicious food and high level service - Incredible attention to any details - Perfect position to visit Etosha (just few km from the main gate) On of the best lodges of my trip!

My husband and I stayed here with my parents for two nights as part of our road trip around Namibia. It was by far our favourite place. The service here is outstanding. The staff are so keen to make everything as easy and comfortable as possible for you. When we arrived we were greeted by a warm and friendly member... More

Stayed there for 3 nights in April 2014. The lodge was rather empty, in fact we were the only guests for two nights. I really appreciated that they did not lower their service level or anything because of us being the only guests. The game drives were fantastic, Petrus is a very knowledgeable and an enthusiastic guide. The lodge, especially... More
