Mushara Bush Camp

Etosha Park - Namibia

Mushara Bush Camp is the third addition to the outstanding Mushara Collection and is only 1km away from, and on the same reserve as, The Mushara Lodge. The Villa and The Mushara Outpost complete the group. The Bush Camp offers a more down-to-earth tented camp experience, and is a suitable and an affordable base for travellers, including families, who wish to explore Etosha National Park.

The main thatched Bush Camp area houses a restaurant, bar and guest lounge. There is disabled access, Internet connection and secure parking. A hot and cold breakfast style buffet, light lunches and a set dinner menu are served on the verandah, with the bush as your closest companion. The swimming pool is ideal for a splash and a dip after a day's activities as well as a chill out zone. The true bush camp impression is enhanced by the evening campfire, a great chance to exchange wildlife sightings, travel stories and plans, with fellow guests

The 16 custom-made luxury tents are built from a combination of canvas and local limestone. They are all equipped with an en-suite bathroom and shower, (and oversized window to view the bush) a fan, mosquito nets, tea/coffee station and an in-room safe. Every tent has it's own 8 square meter private verandah, with roof to floor window. The brushed cement floors and lime stone walls, are designed to keep the rooms cool from the hot afternoon sun. 4 of these tents are ideally suited for families, as they have a sleeper couch, ideal for two small children.

Activities at the camp centre around morning and afternoon game drives into Etosha National Park.

Game drives
The camp runs traditional morning and afternoon game drives into Etosha National Park. As it is only 8km from the eastern gate then you are not too far away from elephant, rhino and the many species of antelope, bird and predators the park has to offer. Many of their guests prefer to self-drive into Etosha.
