Stay an easy 8 km drive from the eastern gate of Etosha National Park. An oasis of calm known for its tastefully decorated rooms, well-kept gardens and welcoming staff, Mushara Lodge is a wonderful base to come back to after your big game safari in Namibia’s flagship reserve.
Choose between Mushara Lodge’s 10 spacious chalets, triple room, two single rooms and 2-bedroom family house. The chalets are arranged in a horseshoe shape around the swimming pool, the triple and single rooms grouped together a short distance from the main lodge, and the family house is across the tree-filled gardens on the other side of the property.
Whichever room you stay in you’ll find a tasteful blend of cream and beige décor with a comfortable four-poster bed draped in white mosquito netting. Stone floors and high thatched ceilings keep things cool, there is air conditioning too for those hot desert afternoons, along with all the other holiday essentials: minibar, safe, tea and coffee station, and electric sockets for charging your camera batteries. As for the bathrooms, the chalets and single rooms have a shower only whereas the triple room and family house have both a shower and a bath.
Drive yourself around Etosha – roads are good and easy to navigate – or go on the guided morning and afternoon game drives offered by the lodge. Either way you’re sure to have excellent big game sightings, particularly around the many waterholes in the park which act as magnets for herds of springbok and zebra, elephant, lion and even the endangered black rhino.
Back at the lodge you can easily spend a few hours alongside the pool while being entertained by the family of warthogs that keep the lawns neat and trim! There’s also a small library with a good selection of books and free WiFi, a comfortable lounge, well-stocked curio shop and a restaurant – although on warmer evenings your three-course dinner is served out on the terrace.
Mushara is a family-owned collection of properties, and this really shines through in the great care and attention to detail shown throughout the lodge. You certainly won’t want for anything during your stay here, and chances are your only regret will be not booking another night.
