Mushara Outpost

Etosha Park - Namibia

Situated in the same reserve as the Mushara Lodge and Villa Mushara, is Mushara Outpost. It is set 2km from Mushara Lodge, has it’s own entrance way and is completely separate from both the lodge and Villa. This small, intimate lodge, has 8 guest units that were built up on raised platforms to provide a unique perspective of the surrounding bush.

The Outpost’s main area is a vast open room. It has been constructed in the style of an old Namibian farmhouse, with high ceilings and a corrugated iron roof and large wrap-around veranda. Inside though, stylish furniture, large plant pots and grand light fittings have been set out to create various sitting areas, together with a lounge and dining area.

Accommodation is nestled amongst the trees of a dry river bed, also known as an omuramba. It has been designed and constructed with a unique combination of canvas, wood and glass. Each room has large glass windows and the doors slide open onto a private deck, enabling you to view the surrounding bush. The en-suite bathroom includes a shower with glass walls from floor to ceiling. A room with a view, bringing the outdoors inside!

Every tented room has a mini bar, air conditioning, small safe, coffee station, telephone, hair dryer and mosquito net. There is also a fairly spacious veranda with sitting space in which to relax.

Dinner is enjoyed under the African stars. Breakfast and lunch can be taken on the veranda or in the house. The wide refreshing pool is a welcome relief after a hot day in the Etosha Park where the focus of the day's activities take place. Guests often comment on how The Outpost is such a comfortable place to stay after driving around Etosha all day!

The Mushara Outpost offers game drives into the park with talented local guides who are truly passionate about sharing the wonders of Etosha. There is also a small waterhole with a bird-watching hide.

Mushura Outpost. Nature’s perfect hideaway.
