Combine all the drama and excitement of game viewing in Etosha National Park with classic tented accommodation at Mushara Bush Camp. Perfectly positioned just minutes from Etosha’s Namutoni Gate, this down-to-earth camp is a popular choice for independent travellers and families looking for tented accommodation with easy access to this world-famous park.
The 16 canvas-and-wood tents at Mushara Bush Camp make this the largest of the four properties in the Mushara Collection, although you’ll still have plenty of privacy as tents are spaced well apart with trees separating you from your neighbours. This is camping in true style: drift off to sleep under canvas in your four-poster bed and when you wake up in the morning roll down the large canvas windows to let in the golden light or make a cup of coffee and wander out onto your private verandah to sit for a while taking in the sounds of the surrounding bush.
If you’re travelling with young children, ask for one of the four family tents which have an additional sleeper couch for your kids. Since Mushara Bush Camp is fenced, children can run around safely and there’s even a special play area with a jungle gym, sand pit and kiddies’ swimming pool.
After a tasty breakfast served on the thatched verandah of the main lodge, set off on your first game drive. Etosha’s good roads and clear signposts make it a great option for a self-drive safari, but you also have the option of professionally guided game drives – and you’re likely to see and learn a lot more in the capable hands of the Bush Camp guides. Either way if you position yourself at one of the park’s many waterholes you’re sure to see plenty of animals coming and going: herds of elephant, lion, springbok and the endangered black rhino are all common sightings on an Etosha safari.
Returning to camp you’ll have a few hours to between game drives to just enjoy the camp itself. All of the tents are arranged around the large swimming pool and thatched main lodge, which is beautifully designed with open sides and a real bush camp feel.
For comfortable yet affordable accommodation right on the doorstep of Etosha National Park, Mushara Bush Camp ticks all the right boxes.
