Lying a mere 10 km from the eastern gate of Etosha National Park, the Mushara Collection of four camps and lodges is perfectly placed for a safari in one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves. Ranging in style from the family-friendly tents at Mushara Bush Camp to the exclusive luxury of the Mushara Villas, this chic collection of properties has something for everyone and offers an excellent alternative to the rather basic rest camp accommodation within the park borders.
The Mushara Collection is set in a private reserve and you can easily spend a leisurely day enjoying these peaceful surroundings: relax by the pool, listen to the birds in the trees and watch the visiting warthog family grazing on the lodge lawns.
Chances are, however, that most of your stay at Mushara will be spent on safari in next-door Etosha, where you’re likely to see plenty of big game including elephant, black rhino, lion and cheetah.
Each of the Mushara properties has been built with a different traveler in mind: comfortable and welcoming Mushara Lodge has 10 thatched chalets set around a large swimming pool; Mushara Outpost offers a wonderfully luxurious tented experience with 8 custom-made tents on raised wooden decks; the 2 exclusive Mushara Villas are perfect for those seeking privacy; while down-to-earth Mushara Bush Camp has 16 en-suite tents in a family-friendly fenced camp.
Whichever of these properties you pick, you’ll be able to explore Etosha on both morning and afternoon guided game drives. Not only do these drives hold the promise of excellent wildlife sightings – Mushara’s guides know Etosha’s roads and waterholes like the backs of the hands – but you’ll also learn a lot about the park and its wild inhabitants.
If you’d prefer to explore under your own steam, it’s an easy 20-minute drive down a good road to the Von Lindequist Entrance to the park and the start of your self-drive safari.
Mushara is a family-owned collection run by people with a passion for good service. Each property is well looked after, in a good location and offers a relaxing base to come home to after all the thrills and excitement of an Etosha safari.
