Conveniently located an easy 10 km drive from the eastern gate of Etosha, Mushara Outpost is a small and luxurious camp offering an authentic “under canvas” experience in a private game reserve. One of four camps and lodges in the Mushara Collection, Outpost is a good choice for travellers who really want to immerse themselves in the safari experience rather than be closed away behind solid walls.
Mushara Outpost has just eight custom-built tents, each raised on a wooden deck and hidden from its neighbours by the bushes of a dry riverbed. Tents are simply but stylishly furnished, and have all the essentials you need for your stay including air conditioning and an electric socket for recharging camera batteries. Glass sliding doors lead onto a private verandah, and a real highlight of each tent is the large shower where you can lower the canvas leaving only glass between you and the African bush!
Dik dik (small antelope), impala and oryx frequently wander through camp and there is a beautifully constructed hide tucked away on the property, but the real tooth-and-claw action is to be found in next-door Etosha. Mushara Outpost offers morning and afternoon guided game drives into Etosha, or you can simply drive yourself; stopping at the waterholes for to look for lion, rhino, giraffe and elephant, and passing herds of springbok on the open grasslands and shimmering white crust of the famous salt pan. If you want to set out early and spend as much time as possible exploring Etosha, the staff at Mushara will happily pack you a picnic breakfast.
Back at the lodge, styled like an old farmhouse, escape the heat of the day with a dip in the pool or grab a book and settle in the much-needed shade of the large, wrap-around verandah. After your afternoon’s game drive (and sundowners if you’re on the guided drive), you’ll return to find a campfire lit in front of the lodge – the perfect place for a drink or two before dinner, which is a three-course affair served out on the terrace on warm summer evenings.
All in all, Mushara Outpost is an exclusive tented camp, perfectly placed for an exciting safari in game-packed Etosha National Park.
